At first you might think that I’m a little late to the party that is known as the Lonaconing Silk Mill. Actually I have been shooting this location since the spring of 2011 thanks to my friends Arthur Ransome andChuck Robinson. But I never got around to processing many of the images much less sharing them. Here is one from my 2nd visit early last summer. This is an amazing location, the mill was shut down in 1957 and everything inside is frozen in time. Unfortunately the mill is in pretty bad condition and its future is uncertain. Being able to photograph a location that is untouched for over 50 years has been a real treat.

While walking through the grocery store this past Saturday I noticed some small bunches of tulips. It occurred to me that it had been a couple years since I did any “macro studio” work. This is something I really enjoy doing but for some reason I find that I don’t do it often. I must admit that I’m feeling a bit out of practice. I decided to use a couple of textures on top of the original shot. It’s not that I wanted to go “grunge” but felt the basic shot was a bit boring and ordinary.

A couple months ago I was asked to be a Guest Photographer on a site called Fotopelak. Besides posting to Twitter, Facebook and my Blog, I don’t spend any time publicizing my work. I would rather spend my time making pictures than trying to promote my work. In spite of this, over the last couple years I have been approached by a number of people in regards to my photography. With so much photography on the internet it is truly amazing that my work occasionally stands out.
After getting the request I had to decide what to share. While I consider myself a nature photographer I decided to submit a collection of old cars. Click here for a link to my gallery.

Last October I spent a couple days in the Delaware Water Gap area of PA, but upon my arrival I discovered that peak fall foliage had already passed. I decided to do a quick middle of the day trip to Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, PA. While the restoration shop was off limits, there was still a lot to shoot. If I’m ever back in that area I will certainly head back for a 2nd visit.
