Quick Hits Vol. I

Capture Cincinnati launched a little more than six weeks ago. In six short weeks Cincinnati-area photographers have submitted nearly 15,000 photos and local folks have cast nearly 200,000 votes for their favorites. What a great start!

As a part of the Capture Cincinnati experience, our editors will select photos from time to time and feature them in a showcase like you see here. A showcase is a digital publication of a collection of photos curated by our editors. Often showcases will follow a particular theme or draw from a category or challenge, but for this one we're calling it "Quick Hits Vol. I" and featuring a few of our favorite early submissions. Enjoy!

Queen City Underground by William Fultz

Queen City Underground

Located deep underneath West 8th street downtown the remains of the Gerke Lagering Tunnels are one of the coolest secrets in the city and you can only see it during the Prohibition Resistance Tour during Bockfest. The craziest thing was climbing down two stories on scaffolding to get to see this. For those of you who don't know, Cincinnati has a rich brewing history and there's several of these tunnels scattered throughout Over-The-Rhine and Cincinnati.
