Bellevue Hill Park

August 27, 2007

As I sit here and delay the start of the dusting and vacuuming, here is a highlight from last week.

Mari and I took a quick trip to one of Cincinnati’s many cool little parks. She was asked to appear in a little video project, so we zipped over there for a fast shoot. The temperature was 102 degrees, but luckily that didn’t affect the wonderful view of the city below:

This park has some contemporary architecture that is quite photogenic:

These concrete canopies form a little shaded pavilion. This structure was designed in 1955 by R. Carl Freund, and was used as a bandstand and outdoor dancing venue. Can’t you just see the women in their fresh, crisp 1950’s dresses out for a night at this pretty location? All of the other local parks I have been to have traditional style structures, so this is a little gem. I think my new photography assignment is to visit some other parks and see what I can capture.
