Cleveland: Random Photos

Recommended Posts

While taking a walk today lamenting no baseball (a warm opening day!? come on!) I saw this cool view highlighting how a good scrubbing can transform the back of a building (CAC).  Perhaps a preview of what the unfinished sides of 925 Euclid will look like.

@mrclifton88 that can't be the Athlon/CAC 😮

 

Apologies for being away from the forum - I work in the insurance industry; if anyone ever wants to suggest insurance is boring, after the past week or so, I highly beg to differ. That said, I finally found a quick moment to get some CDC-compliant socially distant fresh air on the Scranton stretch of the Towpath today.

^^ Great pics @MayDay  That last one is a real spatial mind-bender. There’s a good half-mile between that vent stack and the Lumen!

^ Great pics. There was a clap of thunder downtown about 1.30 this morning that absolutely shook the building to it’s foundations!

Great stuff!  No ex-pat would ever recognize this photo as Cleveland...unless they follow UO 🙂

Sorry to share my twitter feed, but I need to clean up my photos on here (I uploaded some really high res stuff and it's bumping up against my limits, but I digress...). Here's some photos from a bike ride the other day:

For you youngsters, this is how downtown felt on a Saturday or Sunday with no sports in town when I lived there in the early 1990's.

I've ridden into and around downtown a lot these past couple days and it's very, very strange (but nice for cycling!). I came into the office today and it's just sad/depressing walking around - I'll have to get a video on E4 - businesses that aren't open all have their windows covered, truly a weird sight. It's one thing to be dead after-hours, but a whole other thing when it's during central business hours and in those weird off times.

While we don't have the same number of cherry blossoms as Washington DC, the views around the Wade Park Lagoon this weekend were nonetheless beautiful. These photos are from the National Weather Service and Todd Buswell....

A friend took this picture off their back porch in an eastern Cleveland suburb this morning. Normally I would consider this to be a very beautiful picture except, well, it's mid-April.

Just because our Lakewood condo faces east, doesn't mean we don't get to enjoy sunsets. And notice a blazing Terminal Tower in the distance.

Without degrading quality for here, here's some photos from tonight. I'll update this with photos (not twitter) when it isn't time for bed and I have time to mess around with them:

Gorgeous sunrise this morning. A city isn't a city unless it's on water.

Hey guys! I wanted to jump in and document downtown in the days after the protests. I’m glad I took these photos as they are a reminder of a very visceral and important place in time. Cleveland is beautiful. Even covered in plywood.

I ran outside after today’s storms and just happened to be in the right place at the right time to capture these shots! Truly one of the most beautiful rainbows/golden hours/cityscapes I’ve ever seen.

I was searching for a couple photos I thought I had of the new Flats east bank construction but I must have deleted.  


I did find this one from about a month ago from under the NS bridge at the mouth of the Cuyahoga.  Happy summer!

Downtown Cleveland from State Road in Parma on last night's "night shoot" with Glenn Petranek. This was an incredibly difficult shot to even attempt, and it turned out decent considering. What you DON'T see are the two cars coming up the hill, and the two lanes of oncoming traffic behind us. We were constantly attempting to grab this shot then sprinting back to the curb. Not too bad, overall; wouldn't mind trying it again at 2 AM sometime.

^ I love the way the Beacon looks in that picture--it really pops in the skyline.  I particularly like the horizontal lighting.
