Relics of Ole’

Wandering the west side of Pennsylvania I came upon these beauties that were once in their prime.   Now dis-guarded and long forgotten.  They sit raw and exposed to the elements with no claim of ownership.     Driving through the back roads I road past them only to be called back.   I turned around to capture…

Kinsey Distillery

I have a fascination with old abandoned building.   I have attempted to explore this distillery for the better part of six months, but the local police and I have been in conversation when I attempted to enter the site.   They watch and protect, whereas I want to explore and capture photographs.   On this particular…

Lawn Mower Graveyard

In search of unique and different areas to photograph, I stumbled upon a lawn mower graveyard.    John Deere, Toro, Cub Cadet, Snapper; the names, makes and models were abundant and all set aside for what? I had no idea that there were that many brands of push, riding and industrial mowers.    Set out…

Up close

Deep into the woods I came upon an train parked on the tracks.    We have heard them off in the distance, the sound of their whistles as they roar through the towns.   Stopped at rail crossings as we wait impatiently to move forward, but have you ever been up close? One afternoon I stumbled…

Concrete Jungle

On a recent weekend adventure, I had the pleasure of touring downtown Houston TX.    The expansive skyline was extensive.      I lived there a lifetime ago and did not have the pleasure of seeing the city.  My life was very different then and priorities were focused on a small radius of home.   Though…

Balance

There are miles of rails between the east and the west.   The beauty of this is that every inch, yard and mile of this wondrous system of rails is in balance.    The integrity remains strong and unyielding.   The human system starts out that way and over time areas of weakness arise,  we have to…

Retired relics

On recent adventure to the Naval Yard in Philadelphia I stumble upon some relics of ole.   These once beautiful vessels carried missions beyond our local docks. It stands majestic anchored to shore.   It is quiet but the battle wounds are apparent.   It sits quietly at rest while others are adorned. As I wondered through the…

Rails and Trails

Sundays are days to explore, stop the routine of daily life and wander the area.   It is amazing the sights we fail to see that are all around us.    Step outside of ourselves, put  a camera in hand and capture those moments in time. Lines, textures shapes ~ all come together as a…

Chesapeake Marina

Flags flying on Fourth of July, many boats didn’t make it into the water as of yet. Dry dock, rust and barnacles on the underbelly of the boats.    Water lapping on the docks, dogs greeting strangers all so peaceful.  

Hiking treasures

Just a short distance from home another treasure was found.    Old being made new. The structure remains the same ~ construction has started to create something new.

MINI Adventure

Co-pilot for the afternoon seeing the sites and sounds of Philadelphia.    Dozens of MINI Coup / Roadster’s take to the roads. Day filled with sunshine laughter and lots of twisting and turns.   MINIs hug the road! MINIs are as unique as their owners.

Backyard Treasure

There are so many backyard treasures we drive by daily and overlook.   The doors, stones windows are rich with history and stories! Old buildings of stone, steel and stories
