cincinnati street art

A city that enlivens itself by investing in street art is one that uplifts and transforms: the city, its people, the entire atmosphere.  ArtWorks Cincinnati is a program that, according to its website: “believes in human potential and fights for the betterment of our local communities through the power of the arts.”

Below is a sample of street murals in Cincinnati, Ohio we discovered during our three day visit in early March of this year.

*********************

“PHOTOGRAPHY” INVITATION:  I invite you to create a photography intention and then create a blog post for a place you have visited. Alternately, you can post a thematic post about a place, photos of whatever you discovered that set your heart afire. You can also do a thematic post of something you have found throughout all your travels: churches, doors, people reading, people hiking, mountains, patterns, all black & white, whatever!

You probably have your own ideas about this, but in case you’d like some ideas, you can visit my page: photography inspiration.

I challenge you to post no more than 20-25 photos and to write less than 1,500 words about any travel-related photography intention you set for yourself. Include the link in the comments below by Wednesday, May 29 at 1:00 p.m. EST.  When I write my post in response to this challenge on Thursday, May 30, I’ll include your links in that post.

This will be an ongoing invitation, every first and third (& 5th, if there is one) Thursday of each month. Feel free to jump in at any time. 🙂

I hope you’ll join in our community. I look forward to reading your posts!

I invite you all to settle in and read a few posts from our wandering community.  I promise, you’ll be inspired!

Thanks to all of you who shared posts on the “photography” invitation. 🙂
