What`s New

Breezeway

The Scranton Lace Factory Exploration was one of the most relaxing ones yet, mainly because the owner granted me permission to be on the property. These buildings will eventually be turned into some sort of artist community space and I’m glad I was able to spend 5 hours inside before the interior is demoed. This …

Fusees & Torpedos

This train graveyard was a pleasure to shoot, especially with my new Nikon D7000. I must say it’s one kick ass camera! The quality of the images compared to my old D5000 is light years ahead and shooting at this location was like going back in time! While inside this train car, I decided to …

Wurlitzer

It’s always a breath of fresh air (no pun intended) when exploring an abandoned hospital facility with a fellow explorer who has connections. Immediately after arriving at this building, we were approached by security. After giving the names of some county officials whom my friend Darryl knows and does photography for we were left alone …

Storming

After an extended vacation from reality, it can take some time to get back into the swing of things. While on a family get away, I was fortunate to have some gloomy weather to shoot some black and white landscapes using long exposures. I’ve recently added a B + W 6 stop filter to stack …

General’s Quarters

This shot was taken recently after a trip out to Valley Forge National Historic Park for a sunrise shoot.  General Knox’s quarters has a barn which seems to be open in the back.  I spent some time last night working on these brackets and I like the image!  Do I love what the image conveys? …

Final Destination

Working on brackets from this Kirkbride designed Abandoned Hospital in NJ brings back memories. It was a risky exploration and the person I explored this location with insisted on checking the door we entered to make sure it didn’t lock behind us! That door was far away from where this shot was take. Whatever, so …

Singer In The Room

These vintage Singer Sewing Machines were a great addition to the Abandoned Lace Factory. A lot of the rooms that had the most machines were dark, but this one happened to be lit by a window. At first, I thought to frame this shot facing the window, but I decided to squeeze between the table …

Gate To Hell

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. is a great place to practice a little urbex. While inside on a rainy weekday I was able to experience E.S.P. for the second time as a photographer. This time going back and looking for new angles on a place I’ve shot before. I’ve learned a lot since I …

Lace

How could you not shoot some B&W handhelds with the 35mm at this amazing lace factory? It was begging for some f/2.8 and wider! I really love this shot and can’t wait to get another camera body upgrade and always shoot B&W handhelds with my D5000 and prime. I could of processed this image a …

Bowling Alley

Yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot at an abandoned lace factory, soon to be turned into commercial space. We spent almost 7 hours here and used every minute of it. Hundreds of thousands of square feet and guess where we spent the most time? Yep, the bowling alley! Small but full of photographic opportunities. …
