Sunset Beach Water Tower

A few weeks ago I was in Cape May NJ. We were working our way towards Sunset Beach. The plan was to get some shots of the abandoned water tower. I thought it might be a 30 Р60 minute shoot. It ended up being a couple of hours. I was quite amazed with the place. It sits on a Magnesite plant that was active during WWII. The plant was used to make Magnesite which was used to make steel among other industrial supplies.  All of the shots were taken with my Olympus 7-14 f2.8 lens. The location begged to be shot with a wide angle lens and processed in B&W.

Brookgreen Gardens

Last week I was on vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC. I took the opportunity one morning to visit the Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet. The place is a sculpture garden & wildlife preserve and it is beautiful beyond belief. The property consists of 9,100 acres and is built on four former rice plantations. I would compare it to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. But with a very southern feel and charm. One of their missions is to collect, conserve and exhibit figurative sculpture by American artists.

Jurassic Park

On the morning of the 4th of July, we decided to brave the elements (pouring rain) and do a hike at the Trexler Nature Preserve in Schnecksville, PA. It consists of over 1,100 acres and was originally funded by General Harry Trexler. The area we hiked reminded me of Jurassic Park, hence the name of this post. I kept waiting for a Pterodactyl to come swooping down. Fortunately there were none.
