Let's Explore: Mt. Airy Arboretum by Moriartie

Hey There!

I was wanting to explore the city and find more areas to photograph in, when I came across the Mt. Airy Arboretum on a list of beautiful places in Cincinnati, and once I got there, it definitely didn’t disappoint. Several acres, of beautiful leaves, flowers and trees, along with two gazebos, benches, and a trellis covered garden at the top. When I went there the first time, I was having camera troubles, and had to photograph my model on film!

I’d never done that before but she and I both had an absolute blast! After our hour shoot, I was able to research and fix my issue. So I wandered around and was able to take some model less photos of the beautiful grounds and landscapes.

I think I really have fallen in love with how beautiful flowers and trees can be once they’re in bloom. I’ve never really been one for hanging outside, but these parks I’ve been visiting in the last year or so is definitely turning that notion around for me.

Let's Explore: Mt. Storm by Moriartie

Hello There!

I had an off day a couple of weeks ago, and decided to use it to find another park to add to my locations to shoot list. Needless to say, I was successful.

This particular park is located in Northside, but with this awesome location comes an even better view. Its in the hills of Clifton, and you are able to look upon a good portion of the city from just one of the hills in this park and I fully took advantage.

One of my favorite additions in this park is the beautiful Grecian Gazebo, towards the front of the park.

I think my favorite thing about this park is its view, you can see practicly the entire city from just one of its hills! Its definitely going to be added to my list of locations.

Let's Explore: Mariemont and beyond by Moriartie

Hello!

I’d heard there was an abandoned bell tower in Mariemont and I have been wanting to visit it for a while. I’ll have to go back when its open to explore, but I still managed to get some pretty awesome photos from the outside. Since it wasn’t enough to sate my curiosity, my sister and I randomly wandered around the city. Here’s what we found.
