I found these railroad axles all neatly lined up at the Reading and Northern Railroad in Port Clinton. They cried out for monochrome Canon EOS 7D (24mm, f/6.3, 1/80 sec, ISO100)
While browsing around Port Clinton, I walked over a neat old bridge that had these cool rivets. My previous post ‘downstream‘ was taken from this bridge. A contribution to Sunday Bridges and Macro Monday . Canon EOS 7D (28mm, f/4, 1/320 sec, ISO100)
Our charming little town in Bucks County has a few abandoned properties, one of which is the old bowling alley. Some graffiti artists did their thing on the back of the building, so no one really sees it. I like this one in monochrome, hence my contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 12-April-2013. [...]
Drat just doesn’t seem like a fitting word for graffiti, does it? I saturated the colors using HDR Efex Pro. Canon EOS 7D (24mm, f/8, 1/25 sec, ISO100)
The sign struck me funny, I was looking for the dock. This was taken as we were walking to Penn Station in NYC. That’s the Empire State building in the background. A contribution to signs, signs. Canon EOS 7D (24mm, f/4.5, 1/40 sec, ISO2000) Here’s a monochrome shot from further down the street, [...]
Byers Choice is world renown for creating hand-crafted carolers and they happen to be about 5 minutes from my house. While they have a really cool museum, I find their landscape lighting to be a continual source of inspiration. I shot this just about 4 years ago, but at that the time, did not have a [...]
I was roaming around some buildings that had build an enormous retaining wall, some 40′ (12M) high. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 19-Oct-2012
or not. This is pure geek. The tubular thingy that is selectively colorized is a 1,000 ohm, 5% tolerance resistor, commonly used in electrical circuits. Way back when I was in college, you know, when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, we had to memorize the color code. Now, There’s an online decoder ring for such [...]
Monaural (mono) sound? Does anything even have a stereo/mono setting anymore? This is a macro shot of the switch from my Dynaco Stereo 70 tube amplifier that I bought for $50 while a poor college student. It’s even cooler now and still sounds fine (I guess I should have cleaned the switch first). A contribution [...]
A close up of a 100 cubic inches (1.6L) motorcycle engine, taken at the Lansdale Bike Night (you can see the 100 in the upper right corner). Converted to monochrome using Silver EFEX Pro. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 14-Sept-2012
I tend to walk around construction sites and marvel at the warning signs placed on equipment. A contribution to signs, signs
I took this photo of one of the cells at Eastern State Penitentary at a low angle with the sunlight streaming through the skylight. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White 27-July-2012
I forget which cellblock this was taken, near death row at ESP. I liked the dripping, creepy feel. This was lighted naturally, no flash. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 6-July-2012. I promise, I’m almost done with ESP.
A contribution to signs, signs. Captured from a Bobcat loader at a construction site.
I thought these exposed beams at Eastern State Penitentary looked really cool. I first applied HDR processing, then converted to monochrome.
This lone table sites inside a cell at Eastern State Penitentary. I liked the lighting. A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White, 29-June-2012
I thought the texture of the paint as I looked down the hallway at ESP. HDR applied.
This cellblock at ESP had rows of doors stacked up. You guys sick of these yet? I’m coming close to the end, I promise. Canon EOS 7D (10mm, f/0, 0 sec, ISO100)
A 3-exposure HDR of Al Capone’s cell at Eastern State Penitentary. I guess you guys are getting sick of these, eh?
A look inside of one of the cells at Eastern State Penitentary, comfy, eh?
This is the entrance to the hospital at Eastern State Penitentary. I thought the cross made for a nice touch. I’m torn between this image and dots as my favorite from this series. Submitted for Macro Monday
Another 3-exposure HDR of the inside of one of the cells at Eastern State Penitentary. Each room has two doors, the second one lead to an outside exercise area enclosed with 10′ (3M) walls. Isolation was thought to be the key to redemption.
A photo of one of the cell blocks at Eastern State Penitentiary, this might be my favorite shot. The skylights provided localized light that happens to illuminated this cover and reveals an interesting matrix of dots, probably rivets. Interesting that the second spot light illuminated a cover, but the third does not. I thought it made [...]
