The Ohio State University in Snapshots

A public research university that was founded in 1870, today OSU is home to 46,740 students. Here is a collection of shots I took on campus.

President James A. Garfield

The site of one of the more successful front porch campaigns is located in Mentor, Ohio. President James A. Garfield acquired the property five years before he became the 20th president of the U.S. He was assassinated in the Sixth Street train station in Washington…shortly after winning the election of 1880.

Although Garfield’s life ended prematurely by a severely delusional federal office seeker, this National Historic Site gives a glimpse into his life and legacy. After his death, his wife added a Memorial Library which set the foundation of the current presidential library tradition. The library is just a remarkable room. It seems your IQ goes up several point upon entering. For more information visit the James A. Garfield Historic Site

Short North Street Art

Here is a collection of street murals on High Street; the area is located between downtown Columbus and Ohio State University. Lined with coffee shops and art galleries, this historic neighborhood is best explored with a camera and book in your backpack.

Cleveland, Ohio

A gallery of captures that I took during the summer in Cleveland, Ohio. Some of the shots in the downtown area include Progressive Field (The Jake), along with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and various cityscape architecture.
