Franklin Conservatory (Columbus)

I am still planning on going to the Franklin Conservatory this year, but it looks like it will be a while so I thought I'd post these from my last trip. This basically was my first flower photo shoot.

I apologize for the lack of narrative. It has been a busy week and will continue to be a busy weekend.

Maumee Bay Resort State Park Boardwalk

I took these while accompanying my wife on a work retreat in Maumee Bay. I found this boardwalk on the resort grounds. Alex's post prompted me to go looking for these.

I spotted this little guy just I was ending my walk.

I've always enjoyed walks in woods and practically lived in them when I was a kid. I now take even greater delight capturing images of my adventures.

US Air Force Museum (Dayton)

The United States Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio is the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world. The Museum uses both chronological and subjective layouts to tell the exciting story of aviation development from the days of the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk to the Space Age.

Exhibits include over 200 aircraft and missiles, plus family oriented and historically interesting aeronautical displays.

Over one and a half million visitors from around the world come to Ohio each year to tour this unique free attraction. (Information taken from brochure)

These are from a trip I took last fall. The above pictures were taken outside and features some of the many memorials you will find there.

On this last one I have no idea on how it relates to aviation, I just thought it made for a cool picture.

I could post a hundred pictures and still not cover everything you can see and experience on your visit here. If you have pictures of the Air Force Museum you would like to share send them to me and I will post them as I get them.

Spring Grove Cemetery (Cincinnati)

These are from my archive and were taken last spring. I am a member of the Edison Photo Society and last spring the club when on a photo shoot weekend in Cincinnati.

Spring Grove is the second largest cemetery in the United States and has been serving the Cincinnati community since 1845

I just love to explore cemetery's and this one is the largest I have ever been in. You can literally spend hours waking and not see it all.

I definitely did some walking. I was amazed at the number, variety and size of the monuments.

It's not your typical cemetery scenery.

This is just one of many awesome mausoleums you will find on the grounds.

This pink azalea was my only flower picture from the photo shoot.

This was a great shoot and I am looking forward to going back someday.
