LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Cincinnati freelance photographer and founder of Queen City Discovery, Ronny Salerno, has documented a unique piece of history on the Ohio River.

Salerno, through his photography, has brought new life to the Circle Line V, an old "ghost ship" abandoned about 25 miles downstream from Cincinnati.

An excerpt from Salerno's blog:

"I'm certainly not the first person to find the ship, nor am I the first to photograph it, and not the first to see it. The internet is rife with stories of kayakers paddling up to it, geocachers hiding mementos in the wreckage, and shotgun wielding locals who aren't afraid to fire at trespassers. I had known about the vessel for awhile, but never seemed to find the time to go looking for it until recently. In all the years I've been exploring, documenting and photographing abandoned places; the ghost ship known as the Circle Line V is by far one of the coolest things I've seen with my own eyes and through a lens."
