Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek - More Menotripsical Moments

These are a few 'spares' from the great Cincinnati (pre-meal) tour.

...what??? Well, they do have a Monster Mash feel to them!

This is the old telescope in its 'new' building. It still operates and is used for public showings.

Let's finish with a panorama... 180' of Observatory Hill.

It's worth the biggification...


  1. I love that shot looking down from the Observatory steps and seeing the tall windows and old light fixture, glass globe and wood floors.
    It has always fascinated me that they used cannon balls as rollers to open the Observatory domes when first built.

  3. Yam what a beautiful hidden treasure you found in Cincinnati!!
    Lee and Sweet William were the purrfect hosts.
    I had no idea about the Painted Ladies. I only associated them with San Francisco.

  5. I do like the old homes are they in USA.

  6. That's a lotta river and a lotta bridge, too.

  7. The best part was you got to spend time with Lee and Sweet William.

    Aroo to you,

  8. Good Day, Yam!
    Some of the most fun of traveling is seeing the different architecture. On this side of the pond I try to figure out the decades the homes were built. Totally different in Europe.

  9. I love the observatory... but this stairs look promising when we have some margaritas in our belly :o)

  10. These are wonderful photos, friend. You have a keen eye! xx

  11. Great photos of wonderful memories!
