Ghostly

I photographed this scenery last Christmas in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland when we had the first big snow storm in our area. The weather experts are predicting another one this year right around Christmas. We shall see what happens.

Visit to Elfreth's Alley and the surrounding area - Philadelphia, PA

Elfreth’s Alley is centrally located on 2nd Street, between Race and Arch in Philadelphia. Two colonial craftsmen, blacksmiths John Gilbert and Arthur Wells, owned the land where Elfreth’s Alley now sits. In 1702, each man gave up a portion of his land to create an alleyway along their property line that connected their smithies near the river with Second Street, one block away. Since 1702, Elfreth's Alley has been home to more than 3,000 people. Today thirty-two houses, built between 1728 and 1836, line the alley. They form one of the last intact early American streetscapes in the nation. Elfreth's Alley is a National Historic Landmark District, one of the first districts that celebrates the lives of everyday Americans.

Pillartop

Tabletop photography vs. pillartop photography ;) I had fun with this. I used the ambient light by the window as my main light source + fill flash as my secondary source.


Migration

A late Fall morning in Wilmington

Eastern State Penitentiary

A view of one of the many inmate cells and the long corridors at the Eastern State Penitentiary. It is an incredible place to visit. It is creepy yet sad; highly decayed yet still standing. The place gives you the chills and the sense of isolation and loneliness. The decayed texture around you is amazing and worth capturing.
