Light Cuts In

I took this image at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia several months ago. This is a scan of the print I made in the darkroom this afternoon. I like the angles and lines in this shot…

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.”

Washington Memorial Chapel

For this image I returned to one of my favorite haunts, Valley Forge Historical National Park. The image is of Washington Memorial Chapel, an Episcopal church on the northern edge of the park. It’s not only a beautiful building, it has an awesome view, as well.

Window Gear

I found this mechanism at Ellis Island. It was used to open the windows to ventilate the processing hall back in the day.

Towering Liberty

 

This is, obviously, the Statue of Liberty. I made this image from one of the observation decks of the pedestal of the statue. I used my Canon 20D, with a focal length of 35mm. Exposure time was 1/350 second, aperture was 8, and ISO was 400.
