Agway in Greencastle

Recently, the local Photography Club was able to get access (at least to the outside of the buildings) to the closed down Agway in Greencastle, Pa.  It was in the evening after work on an overcast day.  The leader said a few words and turned us loose.  Here are some of the images that I …

Photography Opens Doors

Did you ever wonder where your electrical power comes from?  How it is controlled?  Wouldn’t it be cool to tour the power plant?  Wouldn’t it be cool to have your curiosity satisfied and increase your knowledge of your world? Maybe if you knocked on the power plant’s front door and asked for a tour, they …

Sunflowers

This past September, the camera club had an outing to a sunflower field.  The problem was that it was a two hour drive from home.  Yes, it’s not that far, but it’s not that close.  To spend four hours of our day in the car was just not appealing.  There were too many things that …

Elizabeth …

It’s been two great days this weekend!  The only problem is…they are over! I’ll tell you about yesterday in a future blog, but for now, let’s talk about today. Last year Annette and I arranged for the camera club to go to the Anderson Grist Mill near Mercersburg, PA.  The participants who attended the photo …

Shem Creek

Shem Creek is a great little area near Charleston.  Annette and I went there for dinner and spent the rest of the evening taking images. Shem Creek used to be a very active port for fishermen in the area.  However, as of late, the fishing industry is having its challenges and the fleet is shrinking. …

Downtown Details

On one of the early days of our trip to Charleston, Annette and I walked through the old-time neighborhood and took pictures of some of the great details of the beautiful houses.  Check out these pictures and see what I mean: This park bench detail can be seen all over Charleston.  I thought it looked …
