Halloween Charity Ball 2017

On Friday I shot the Halloween Charity Ball for the fourth year. It is always one of my favorite events to photograph - people in costume having a good time. This year the event raised money for Pechakucha Akron and Stewart's Caring Place. Roxymoron played the VIP room and there was the DJ and costume contest in the other. I had a blast as usual and dressed up in my annual thrift store women's costume.

Pre-Historic Ride

I've always wanted to explore some of the ancient American Indian sites in the southern half of Ohio so Erin planned a short trip for us that combined that with some cycling. She found us a rustic cabin that was only a few hundred feet from The Little Miami Scenic Trail - a paved bike path that ran right to the Fort Ancient Park. On our second full day we drove to the Great Serpent Mound - viewing that has been something I've wanted to do since my Ohio History class in elementary school. I didn't shoot a ton of photos on the trip but like the last few get-aways put more effort into making a video that will be posted in the next few days.

200 Plates

200PlatesSummitLake from Reimagining the Civic Commons on Vimeo.

Re-imagining the Civic Commons held a three day studio for the cities involved in Akron. One night they collaborated with The League of Creative Interventionists to put on a community meal at Summit Lake. The meal took place next to many of the park-like upgrades that have been funded by the program. It was cool to see the diversity of the group that sat down and ate together. This is a short video/slide show I made of the event.
