The Schoonmaker

Spent some time tonight downtown on the east side of the river shooting some time lapses and long exposures. We have a beautiful city! The Schoonmaker looks especially cool at night in the frozen river. #igers_toledo #toledo A photo posted by Shawn-Exploring NW Ohio (@exploringnwo) on Jan 27, 2015 at 7:49pm PST
