    Just a reminder to all. Bring prints to show and tell.


    I am wondering if this would interest our group? I’ve been asked to find the spot on the OH & Erie Canal that would offer the most potential to a group of ULF shooters. What I offered has lots of swings tilts and stuff, but also lots of history, angles and architectural drama. Would a stroll down this part of the towpath be of interest to our group? We could get there from here in less than 30 minutes or perhaps 20 minutes from breakfast at the Richfield Family Restaurant.

    Here is how I described it to the ULF group.
    “I am so happy to share with you the history, entropy, architecture,
    formalism, rehabilitation, new life of the OH & Erie Canal. It has
    been photographically and historically fascinating for me over the
    past four years and 150 images. The canal goes from Cleveland through
    the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, through industrial Akron and on
    down through farm land to the Ohio River. We will go to a point on
    the flat towpath where the whole canal, which takes its water from the
    Cuyahoga River, is bridged by aqueduct across another river. We will
    walk under an ancient railroad bridge coming out by another RR bridge
    supported in the middle of the Cuyahoga River by boulders within a
    wooden beam frame. That bridge sight line will intersect with an
    arched multilane concrete overpass. Around the next curve we will go
    under an interstate on ramp supported by multiple concrete columns.
    We will encounter all of this and more within a mile of our parking
    lot next to the local police department.

    Some pictures of other areas from the series and an artist’s statement.

    Would this be of interest?

    Here we are at the 2011 FAVA show. The middle 7x17 picture is a location on this tour. "Around the next curve we will go under an interstate on ramp supported by multiple concrete columns."

    Picture of us taken by Mat Marrash. We met Mat, his girl friend, Lee L and his wife at FAVA and lunch. Mat also had pictures in the FAVA show.

    Was it you that was thinking about going to Hocking Hills Frozen Film Shoot? My feeble brain thinks so. Look forward to meeting you. BTW, I am going to Hocking Hills again for 15-17 April. PM me for more information.

    Yes Lee, it was me. Looks like I missed a good time from the photos you posted. I'll PM you about Hocking Hills.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be there Sat and or Sun. I'm always interested in seeing others' pictures.

    I'll email htimsdj and jameswilliamsjones and see if they can make it.

    Thread got quiet so I thought I would bump it up.

    John I remember "signing Z papers".

    If you can find us a fast place for dinner Friday I hope to be up Friday evening, Sat and head home Sunday after our normal breakfast it looks like.

    The canal path sounds interesting, John. Maybe I'll find a baby stroller and bring the 8x10.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

    Thanks Lee. I was begining to wonder if there was still interest in the event. In Montrose there is pretty heavy Friday dinner traffic. I think the key to faster speed may be earlier dinner. When do you think you will be here?

    Thanks Mike. I recently walked the part of the towpath I described just to be sure nothing had changed. There are some amazing bridge structures, generations of transportation, all intersecting in a short bit of space. For much of that mile the towpath is the only thing separating the Cuyahoga River from the OH & Erie Canal. Bridges of many different designs are crossing over and intersecting each other.

    If others are interested we can go Saturday morning.

    We're still interested! We'll be there Friday night after dinner (probably 9ish, maybe later) until Sunday morning.
