Ohio to Erie and More 2020

Ohio to Erie Trail
For the second year in a row a few of us decided to tackle the Ohio to Erie Trail. This year we added an extra day and switched up our route a bit adding a camping spot and trip down the Little Miami Scenic Trail. It was a nice change as it cut out a fairly tedious part of the trail and replaced it with a more scenic route and some cool towns. I had to debate what photo gear I wanted to bring since space and weight on a bike-packing trip are a big deal. I ended up going with my GoPro Hero 8 Black and my Canon 6D with a 40mm pancake lens. I tried to leave the dSLR at home but in the end I knew I would want at least a few high-quality photos and the low light capability that the GoPro lacks. Photo-wise I shot them both about equally as grabbing the GoPro while riding is so much easier.

Mr. Fred

My friend Greg has an exhibit at the Summit ArtSpace, MR. FRED AND MR. GREG-LOVE BEYOND BOUNDARIES, and I wanted to document it - and he wanted it documented. Here is a link to the official show description and artist statement - LINK - nut in a nutshell Greg is telling the story of his relationship with his father who was in prison while he grew up through their letters and drawings. It is pretty touching and interesting and a bit personal for me since we grew up on the same street.
