It’s not for everyone, but DCI events never disappoint musically educated audiences. When five or six musicians crank out tunes in perfect timing and harmony, we call that a super-band. And when about a hundred musicians crank out tunes in perfect timing and harmony with elaborate choreography, props, backdrops, flags, rifles, sabers and a constantly evolving theatrical style — we call that a corps-style marching band.
If you’re longing for quality time with your child(ren) and you appreciate superb cars and noisy engines, do what I did. Look into social skills classes for one or more of your kids.

Of all the places where I have uncapped a lens, Cincinnati is my hands-down favorite. And why not? Cincinnati boasts a wide array of locations, a full spectrum of seasonal possibilities, a healthy collection of competing photo, film and video vendors, and magic light as beautiful as anywhere.
