Glass Pumpkins

This image was made at Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. The glass pumpkins are on display in the conservatory this fall. They are hand-blown, and the creations of Cohn-Stone Studios in California. If you’re in the area, they’re worth seeing!

Old House

Yet another shot from our tootling. I think this was somewhere between Allentown and Reading. Note to self: get a checklist…

Hot House Remains

If you’ve been around this blog very long, you may recognize this building. It’s an abandoned Victorian hot house on the grounds of Valley Forge Historical National Park. The other images I’ve posted can be seen here and here. I’ve visited this site numerous times in the last year, and have dozens of images of it. I think part of what I like about it is the repeated lines and angles in the structure, as well as the irony of a building that existed in order to grow plants being abandoned by people, just to have it overtaken by plants.

Abandoned House

This image was made somewhere in the back roads of Pennsylvania. It was part of our tootling trip last weekend.

Final Rest

I made this image last weekend in a random cemetery we came across while we were out tootling around. I didn’t remember to get the name of the place. Brian keeps telling me I need a checklist, and I’m beginning to think he may be right!

Ecclesiastes 1:4

I made this image at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To me, it illustrates the truth of Ecclesiastes 1:2-4: “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” What profit has a man from all his labor In which he toils under the sun? One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever.”
