Lehigh and Susquehanna Abandoned Railroad Station in Wilkes-Barre, PA

  Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a fan of exploring, and if I encounter an interesting-looking abandoned building, I can’t help but get a closer look!  Something about dilapidated interiors–their former, deteriorated glory highlighted by the sunlight flooding through the cracks in the boards–is just fascinating to me.   Advertisements

Balluminaria Festival in Mount Adams

When I was a child, my parents took me to the Balluminaria Festival in Mt. Adams.  I remember walking amongst the hot air balloons, gazing up at them, aghast at their sheer enormity and the towering plumes of fire inflating them.  It was one of the few times as a kid that I was simply content […]

Union Terminal’s “Tower A”

I first read about Union Terminal’s main control room, Tower A, in a Cincinnati magazine article last year entitled “Hidden Cincinnati.”  It had a wide-angle photo of Tower A’s interior and briefly talked about its history.  I was flabbergasted!  I had been to Union Terminal dozens of times since my childhood (including a photoventure last year […]

Residency Applications

As I mentioned before, I’ve been applying for artist residencies.  Most of the ones I’ve been looking at would occur in the summer in either France or Germany.  They’re pretty competitive, so my chances of actually getting one are very slim.  But since I spend so much time on each application, it will make me […]

Fun with UC’s Electron Microscope!

Butterfly Wing, 350x Magnification

Thanks to David Rosenthal, director at Prairie Gallery, and the organizing efforts of the amazing Anjali Alm-Basu, I and a couple of UC photo students had the privilege to ‘play around’ with one of the University of Cincinnati’s electron microscopes.  Check out the (amazing!) results below: In the final photo in the gallery, the leaf […]

Photoventure: Scioto

One of the oddest things about University of Cincinnati’s campus is the abandoned apartment complex that stands on its eastern edge.  It was built in the 1960’s as ‘family-style’ apartments, but has since been closed for renovation.  Morgens, the building on the left if you’re facing from Sigma Sigma Commons, is currently under construction and […]
