One of the great things about heading out with your camera is finding the unexpected. I was hiking by a river, scouting for another project, when I stumbled upon this abandoned Plymouth Belvedere. I think it is a 1954 Belvedere, but not certain of that. It is quite well preserved, considering it had been sitting […]
A moment in time is up at the New York Times Lens blog. This project captures a moment on May 2nd at 11am (east coast time) all around the world. I’m still digging through the thousands of photographs to see if my shot made the cut, under nature and environment. It is worth a look.
Night photographs of this post-industrial city near where I grew up. I shot these in 2002-2003 with a hand held 3-megapixel point & shoot camera. I like the sketchy nature of the images, almost like drawings. I’m interested in the old neighborhoods near the industrial area, in the true heart of the city. More from […]
I’m working on a photography project, and am finding that early Sunday mornings are a great time to get out and take photographs. It’s quiet, people are sleeping in, and the streets are empty. Taking photographs outside in public view tends to draw a lot of attention. Especially if you are photographing something unusual, like […]
Old things interest me, they are evocative, they have a rich visual language. Most of my work is about old things – buildings, objects, even landscapes. Why give so much attention to old things? It is what interests me, I’m drawn to it. Even after photographing this subject for over 20 years, I still find […]
After seeing Carl Weese’s beautiful shot of the Pike Drive-in, I went digging for some of my drive-in photographs. This is from Deer Lake PA, an area where I photographed extensively for my Anthracite Region essay. I find this area of Pennsylvania to be fascinating, it preserves something that has been lost in many areas. It […]
On a recent trip to the USVI, I discovered some interesting – although dark – history. Large sugar and cotton plantations existed in the 1700\’s and 1800\’s on what was then the Danish West Indies. Some of those plantation ruins are still there today, hidden in the thick jungle overgrowth. These were slave holding plantations, […]
I made a visit to Rankin in December, my previous visits were years before, in the early 2000\’s. A lot had changed at the site since then, it is under redevelopment now, a heritage site with a lot of commercial sites being developed adjacent to the old blast furnaces.
This photographs is from a 2004 visit to Tahawus, a mining site, and also the name of the town that used to stand on this site in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I\’ve updated my photo essay of Tahawus, some of the photographs have not been posted previously. <a href=\”../mine/index.htm\”>Tahawus Photographs</a>
