Lukens Steel Mill

Recently, Annette and I were invited to participate in a photo shoot/workshop at the Lukens Steel Mill in Coatesville, PA.  We were excited because we love to shoot old and abandoned buildings and their contents. When we first arrived, the organizers, who were very familiar with the mill since they were part of the local …

Waterside Woolen Mill

Annette and I don’t get out to shoot nearly as often as we would like.  So, we are tickled when the location at which we are shooting turns out to be a “target rich environment”.  The mill definitely was such an environment! We joined the Camera Club for a trip to Waterside, PA to a …

Washington at Night

Annette and I have not been very active with our photography since the big trip to Death Valley at the beginning of December.  But in January we took two trips to Washington, DC. The first trip we were showing some of the mall to some friends.  We went to the National Air and Space Museum …

Harrisburg from City Island

Back on November 11, 2012, the Harrisburg Camera Club had a group photo shoot on City Island.  Over 20 members showed up to take pictures.  One of those members was me. The Harrisburg Marathon was on the same day and the place was packed.  Hurricane Sandy had put a serious damper on the New York …

Death Valley – Badwater

Annette and I participated in a Photography Workshop in Death Valley this past week.  In fact, we just got home today after taking the red-eye flight back east. The workshop was good.  They pushed you to expand your vision.  In fact, part of their tag line is to, “Seek your vision.” Each day we were …

The Ravenel / Cooper River Bridge

If you ever go to Charleston, you will not miss the Cooper River Bridge. It’s huge. It’s unique. And, it’s in a very visible location. Underneath the bridge is a very nice, well-maintained Memorial Park.  It has playground equipment for the kids and a beautiful setting for the adults. One evening, Annette and I went …

The National Mall at Night.

Normally, I am a big chicken!  When I go to a large city, like Washington, DC, I want to get out of town before night falls. But last night, Annette and I tried and experiment.  We left after work and went in to Washington, DC. DC is only 1 1/2 hours from Hagerstown, where I …

Carlisle at Night

Looking back through my catalog of images, I see that the last time that Annette and I were out shooting was the beginning of November.  That’s three months of photographic inactivity!  Wow! Last night we finally decided to shoot and it felt good. The Harrisburg Camera Club is trying a themed competition for the March …

Shadows and Light in Harrisburg

This past Sunday, Annette and I joined a group from the Harrisburg Camera Club on a photo shoot in downtown Harrisburg.  Annette and I were running behind so we joined the group after they had made their way up State Street and were moving toward North Street. It is difficult for me to see pictures …

Anderson Mill

Earlier this year, the president of the Harrisburg Camera Club was looking for suggestions for photo field trips.  Before I could think, I opened my mouth and said that Annette and I had always wanted to spend some time at the Anderson Grist Mill.  He took that innocent comment to mean that I was volunteering …

Harrisburg Parking Garage Tour

Annette and I did not know what to expect, but whatever vague notions we had in our minds did not match what happened.  We were not mentally prepared. The Harrisburg Camera Club had a photo shoot today.  The description of the shoot just said Downtown Harrisburg and the meeting location. So when Annette and I …
