Its Gonna Rain

Its Gonna Rain
On Friday I drove up to Cleveland's Kink Gallery to see my friend Micah's opening. A few of my friends rode the whole way and I wanted to do the same but I had a shoot back in Akron after. So I brought my bike and met them for dinner before the show. Micah's work is really cool and I helped him out with a couple of the video projects for it. Check out more info on the Kink Contemporary page.

Asterisk Coffee Bar

It has been a bummer not be be able to celebrate and enjoy the events that Askersik Coffee Bar/Akron Coffee Roasters usually would have - birthdays, tastings, shop rides etc - but I have still benn helping them promote what they do have going on with photography. Asterisk now has an open patio and has still made special cocktails and drinks for certain occasions. They share these on their social media pages - but I wanted to share a few of my favorites on the blog.

Summer Rides

Towpath Riding
Evening rides in perfect light are just about everything. We rode out to Magic City for some drinks and dinner then headed across the street to watch the sunset at the lake. Perfect summer evening.

Lakefront Nature Preserve

Lakefront Nature Preserve
On Thursday I had a shoot up near Cleveland and decided to take a walk at the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve after. It is an interesting place - in the 60's two old freighters were sunk to protect a park beach and then the US Army Corps of Engineers started dumping the sediment dredged for the Cuyahoga River shipping channel here. After it was filled in and they stopped using it for this purpose nature took hold and now the spot is known for a variety of bird species and butterflies. It opened to the public in 2012. I was there at about noon so the light wasn't great for a lot of photographs but I still managed a few that I liked. I shot all of these with my Canon 5DIV and Sigma 105mm f/1.4

Cleveland Birthday Ride

Cleveland Bday
Friday was my birthday and Erin and I continued our tradition of having lunch in Cleveland at the French Cafe Le Petit Triangle. Since the weather was perfect we also brought our bicycles and rode around to a few other of our favorite spots. I snapped some photos with my Canon 5DIV and also made another video. Check it all out below.

Skate or Die

Some of my friends have been creating a DIY skate spot and on Thursday evening I decided to ride my bike over and check it out. I brought my Canon 5DIV with my Sigma 105mm f/1.4 and my ultra wide 16-35mm. I got a bunch of really great photos and it was good to see some people in an outdoor setting - it had been a while. Don't ask me where it is - if ya know ya know.
