    I was in Cincinnati for an interview on Monday and ended up staying for 2 extra days because of Sandy. I was able to get around downtown Cincinnati on the first night but I didn't bring a winter coat and got pretty sick shortly thereafter.

    Just wanted to share a few photos of this nice city. As always, C & C's are welcome.

    Really nice set. I have folks who live there and across the river in Kentucky.

    The airport is right by Covington, KY - hence CVG as its three letter code.

    Yekimrd, I love the pictures. I hope you enjoyed your stay in the Queen City. If you get the job, I'll let you in on some of the great places you need to check out. Good luck.

    Awesome shots, Mikey! I love the perspective of the first shot. The second and third shots of the bridge are also great!

    I live just an hour north of there in Dayton, and I love the Roebling Bridge.

    Nice images Mike. You must like shooting up. Sorry about getting stranded, at least you put the dead time to good use.

    Gary

    PS- If you were stranded in LA I'd loan you a winter jacket ... but you probably wouldn't need it.

    Thanks very much, Dan! I'll be sure to look you up if I do end up there. I stayed at the Cincinnatian. I didn't realize Cincinnati was called the Queen City. I didn't even think that the city had a nickname. :p

    Thanks! I loved the 1st shot as well but was disappointed that it was a cloudless overcast day. I went back at night only to realize that the same shot wouldn't work so had to settle with a different POV for the fountain.

    I wonder if you know the answer to a couple of questions I have: 1) Is it me or does Roebling resemble the Brooklyn Bridge? 2) How do people get shots of the bridge from its right side?

    I wanted a horizontal one to include the skyline but my vantage point was too low. I didn't bring anything wider than a 25mm. I wish I had my 60mm or 75mm with me.

    Thanks for the well wishes! I literally just got back home a few mins ago. Still have a very stuffy nose but at least the fever and sore throat are gone.

    Thanks! I only had my 2 wides (7-14, 12/2) and the PL25. I really don't have a preference for shooting from a low angle but I've noticed they make for very interesting UWA images.

    My brother lives in LA. You're right -- After living in the East Coast, I probably won't need anything more than a windbreaker in LA. But thanks for the offer. :)
