A Plan Develops

As the pictures started to accumulate, I began to wonder what to do with them. It seemed such a shame to just let them sit on my hard-drive. A friend of mine suggested to create a blog. I thought it was a great idea so I'm giving it a try. The first couple of post are going to be playing catch-up with where I am at currently in the process. Once caught up I am hoping to have weekly to bi-weekly post with updates on my progress. The plan is to have photographed all 10 locations by late fall.

The plan has further expanded to possibly an exhibit at the local library and maybe a few other locations. It's one thing to upload and post pictures on the Internet. It is completely another to print, frame and hang a large number of pictures. I am still working on the logistics. Cost is becoming a real factor.

The purpose for the blog and possibly upcoming exhibit is to not just showcase my work but to raise the awareness of this Ohio Scenic byway and the beauty it offers. Of course finding that beauty can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, but if you look hard enough and take the time you will find it.

All the pictures in this blog were taken by me. I did not take a journalistic approach. The pictures have been edited. Power lines and other distractions have been removed. In this picture of Rachel the light for the memorial and cherubim to hide the light have been removed.

Finding the time to make all the updates for the blog and take the pictures is becoming quite a challenge. I am hoping to find a way to streamline the process. I started the blog about a month after I started taking the pictures. It will probably be much easier once I catch up and am just doing updates.
