Let's get out our tripods again and do a night time photo walk along the river banks of downtown Cincinnati at the new hot spot called appropriately "The Banks." Our focus will be on catching the Ohio River, Roebling Bridge, the colorful neon lights and fountains of the Banks, the new 45-acre Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront park on Mehring Way, and other interesting parts of the area. We will be meeting on a Tuesday night when the Reds and Bengals will not be playing to avoid large crowds. I already visited and shot some photos of The Bank last week to check it out. Here are several photos to whet your appetite (the area is photographic amazing):
For those who are doing a pre-shoot dinner we will start our meetup at 7:15 pm at the Moerlein Lager House restaurant at The Banks, located on Joe Nuxhall Way right next to the Great American Ball Park. I have a reservation for 14 persons (13 RSVPs for dinner so far). Please RSVP if you will be participating in dinner and have not done so, else meet us at 8:15 pm just outside the restaurant on the plaza to start our photo walk.
I will provide a map of the things you will definitely want to shoot. That map is now uploaded to the More/Files area with this name OVCC The Banks Photo Walk Map.
To prevent 35 of us all going to the same spot I will break us into several smaller groups and have us go to different starting points.
Given the number on the waiting list I am going to schedule a second night.
