Separate but Together

Here are 2 separate locations, but I like them together because of the abandonded railroad ties in the foreground.

The one on the left is very recent. and the one on the right is from last year in a city a few hundred miles away. They are both remnants of the steel industry in Ohio.

New Images Rise From The Ruins!

These are a few of the shots I took on my most recent "Rust Belt ,Deconstruction"
photo tour. I took quite a few documenting the overall scene. But On this trip I also took quite a few focusing on just the compositions laying around hidden in the scene. I really like the ladder. It was hidden away in one of the most dark and disgusting areas. The whole site smelled like asphalt. Kind of frightening looking but also mysterious.It was even more enjoyable to share this trip with my good friend Glenn who was visiting from Oregon.

Industrial Ruins Vacation tour

Here I am in my element, on a photo shoot, except I have a guest! My friend Glenn Wright who is a friend I have known since 1978 was in town. Glenn has lived in Portland Oregon for 20 years and comes back to Ohio to visit once or twice a year. Glenn and I have always had a similar appreciation for a lot of things, and we usually find something interesting and unusual to do on his visits. I am no stranger to photographing "rust belt industrial decay"and "deconstruction", but this was a new experience for Glenn. He seemed to be into the new adventure and took many pictures of his own. He has his own website and journal where he has recapped his trip at
I took a lot of good photos I'm very happy with and I will be posting them soon.
