The Idiot Photographer has for some time been posting shots from our recent trip to Ohio, so it’s up to me to catch up. We spent most of our time in Cleveland, so it’s fitting we begin here. Below: Carnegie Avenue bridge over the Cuyahoga River.
I inevitably reach this point with any batch of photos, at which I have lost my ability to objectively judge the quality of what I’m posting.

Whatever. I’m going to have a whiskey.
Meanwhile, here’s the best of the rest. If any of these tickle your art button, let me know.
