Another Cleveland photo walk

Previous Cleveland photo walks can be seen here and here.

A few days ago, our grandson, who, like me, really enjoys photography,  celebrated his 20th birthday. For a birthday treat, his parents took him downtown for a photoshoot in several Cleveland neighborhoods and a great lunch in Ohio City.2016_03_08_Trailwalk_Around CLV0008 Suspecting I might pout (or be tempted to throw a tantrum) if I missed this photo opp, they invited me to join them. Just kidding.  You know I would never do that. (Of course you do.)

Our first stop was the Cultural Gardens along MLK Drive where we photographed this statue in the Ukrainian Garden. It is framed by some beautiful trees that aren’t yet in bloom, so   our plan is to return in several weeks when the trees begin to bloom (Nothing blooms in mid-March. This is Cleveland, after all).  Here are a few more pictures from the garden, designed by the Ukrainian community in Cleveland.

 

Another stop on today’s shoot was the area know as The Flats, located on the banks of the Cuyahoga River. Here I took a few shots of Michael and his mom at the base of the Veterans’ Memorial Bridge. It was Michael’s idea, and I really like the way these turned out.

That’s it for today’s post. Here is a sampling of pictures coming up in Part Two of this photo walk in the city.  I hope you will be back to see them.

Thanks for joining me today.
