Lou! Yes, you and I are kindred spirits of the charity/photography world. Together, we document our respective scenes as best we can. I will hit you up if I cruise thru Ohio. Do the same if you stop in the Bay Area. We'll grab some dinner and see a band or two.

I ENJOYED THE PICTURE'S. My sister worked at hotel Conneaut and it was believed to be haunted back then. One night they had a show on tv about it. Paranormal State was the name of the show.
Laura 20-Jul-2009 03:05
Lou--as always, I am in awe of your camera work. I hope you get picked up and paid for these images.

Hi Lou

This is Lisa K. Lock, the dancer you posted on the internet from Ingenuity.
Please correct the spelling of my name from Lisa Locke to Lisa K. lock.
Also this is not Civic Ballet, that info got printed wrong in the Plain Dealer
I am an independent choreographer that choreographed the duet

My name is "one73" I am a "toy" in regards to graf work. I am triing to become part of the dynamic movement of aerosol. I was wondering if you could forward me any info. about upcoming exhibitions like the one held in the flats in 2002. I would love to display my style along with the rest of Cleveland's graf artists community. please contact me at: Thank You! and Peace.

I'm origanally from western Pa now living in Arizona it was so nice to see pics of home, I grew up in Conneaut Lake, Jamestown, And Pittsburgh, so you pretty much covered all the bases.
Ian Bell 01-Mar-2005 13:00
Really enjoyed your galleries.
n the 80's I was very good friends with a Cleveland musician by the name of Jeff Varga. He lived around Spokane but have since lost touch. Have you heard of him and do you know if he is still on the scene?

Thank you for putting your pictures on line.
Tracy 15-Sep-2004 14:26
I was looking at the pics taken at Conneaut Hotel. They were lovely. I am awaiting mine to be developed from my recent trip. Is the hotel haunted? Yes, but more than just Elizabeth. Maybe the young girl's name (who WORKS there) is Carrie? Anyway, if you have never stayed at Hotel Conneaut, make plans to do so, it's wonderful! :) Who knows what you might see, smell or hear!

Thank you for posting the great Tremont photos - the other ones are awesome, too, don't get me wrong, but it is always a hoot to see the neighborhood I so adore through someone else's lens. Do you participate in the ArtWalk? I wish you would. If so, please contact me (I'd just be able to refer you to someone, as I am helping the ArtWalk with marketing and promotional activities - I don't own a gallery or anything like that).
Guest 11-Jan-2003 01:59
Hey I was wondering if you could tell me how you made the animated GIFS. I'm assuming, like my camera, they are originally .MOV files and I'm wondering how you managed to convert them to something that can be shown on Pbase.

Thanks for your time.

Hey lou.this is a very eye opening site for me.i never knew all of theses pictures existed.I do however have a question.Are the cleveland flood pictures real?
Greg 16-Oct-2002 09:52
Dear Louis,
I am a Clevelander currently living in Las Vegas. Sometimes I get a little homesick and go online looking for things about home. I just happened upon your photos and think they're great! Besides the fact that they are of places I love and miss, many of your photos are simply beautiful. I am taking up photography myself and find you to be an inspiration. Thanks and keep up the good work.
ThomasH12-Oct-2002 18:59
Excellent! Aside of the acclaimed photography I would like to
add that you are also the by far best CSS author on Pbase.

The astonishing richness and creativity of your customizations
surely contributes to the popularity of your galleries. I am
trying to learn from you working with better CSS!

Great photos!!! Cleveland native my entire life and you have really captured some great images from this area and from all the places you have been. Great work!!
unknown temple keeper 08-Oct-2002 19:21
Hi Lou- finally made it to your page- to the Temple of lost love. What i didn't expect was the abundance of images from all over. WOW! I'm looking forward to grazing through them one by one. Have you been down there lately? This season's color is grey, apparently. Look for an upcoming article in Scene about it. It's only a phase, I hope-.... keep shooting!

2 hours from me. I live in Erie, Pa. Tina

I like your webpage. Perhaps you should photograph more graffiti and post up! The saltmine wall is covered with new graffiti all the way down and it looks way nicer now.

Also, under that part that says Sek; Mone; Andy, it should instead read Anoy (not andy). Keep up the good work!

Love your pics! I used to live in Little Italy for about 6 weeks. In that time, I never made it to the Lakeview Cemetary, but your pics help make the difference! Say, do you have any pics of Little Italy during the Feast of the Assumption, or just Little Italy in general? Presti Donuts Rock!

Meag 08-Jul-2002 02:08
I love your work - especially the shots of the graff down under the Eagle St. bridge. Do you have any idea of who the artists are down there? Or how the Temple got started? I've been around the river for the last 13 years and have known about the Temple for the last 6 or 7. I've watched it evolve but lately its evolved faster than I can keep track. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks - Meag
Guest 27-Jun-2002 01:09
If I were to leave a message for all the great photographs on this page, I would take up to much of Slugs bandwidth, there fore I post here. I love all of your pictures, my favorites lie with your manipulated flood photographs. From our run in in the chat room, and my ability to not look around prooves that those photographs do look real ;)

I like all the diary pages, and cant wait for months to come.

I like you work with the graff and skyline pics. I am a graff artist from the detroit/Ann Arbor area and was interested in visiting Cleveland to check out the graff scene. I'd be interested in photographing and documenting the culture with graff down in your area. If you know any artists or fellow photographers please let me know. I plan to be in downtown april 5th and 6th. Any help would be appreciated. Keep up your work its good man.
lou muenz12-Mar-2002 23:11

thanks for the nice comments in guestbook. you are correct, i do need to add more descriptions at certain galleries, i actually tell myself that a lot and have added a few comments in the last week but i will make a concerted effort to do a better job. you now have me curious about the green-room, i know nothing of its history but intend to find out. right now they are hosting local bands after being mainly an open-mike type joint.
my friends play this friday (long john denver) and saturday ( mikey machine ).
take care.

As a Clevelander now transplanted in the pacific northwest it's great to see your've caught some great shots of places not always seen by even native Clevelanders...I've also shown your site to some of my friends that still live there...
they've enjoyed them as well but we all seem to agree that a little more description of some of your more obscure shots would be great...For example, "The Green Room"...why
not a little blurb on its history...wasn't it not a "speakeasy" back in prohibition?
Thanks, I'll be checking back with you frequently! ;)
