Sunrise 84: Ault Park & Lunken Airfield (Macro Dew, Cool Summer Morning)
Today was another beautifully cool summer morning in Cincinnati. The temperature was brisk, lower 60s at the highest. I cruised on into Ault Park just before sunrise to get a shot of the dawn sky, and upon seeing the fog down in the valley, decided to drop down to Lunken Airfield for a nice 10 mile ride. Got some great pictures of the sunrise over the foggy lunken airfield, as well as some macro picture of the morning dew.
If you’re on the front page, click to continue. About 12 or so pictures in total. Including a pleasant picture of St. Stephen’s Italianate bell tower.
I had to stop in East End to get a picture of this Italianate bell tower of the St. Stephen catholic church. This church sits in East End next to the old Public Library (that is now used as a venue). The bell tower is beautiful and if you look closely you can see some of the old hardware likely used for chiming the bells. This church was built in 1867, one of the oldest churches in Eastern Cincinnati (if not *the* oldest). Back in Sunrise 38 I wrote the following:
Across the street there is the St. Stephen Catholic Church. After my recent introduction to the “Italianate” style, the tower on this building stands out incredibly. It is almost identical in style to the radio tower @ the US Playing Card Company and the Linwood Public School. The church’s website says they’ve been serving the catholic community since 1867 – within a decade of the Spencer Township building and just 6 years before the Linwood Town Hall (which in 1903 became Our Lady of Loretta Roman Catholic Church) located just a half mile or so from here.
