Ellis Island – The Unseen

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to participate with the Lehigh Valley Photography Club, by visiting a “hard hat only” area of Ellis Island. We were given access to the immigrant hospital buildings, which included the¬†infectious and contagious disease wards, kitchen and the mortuary and autopsy room. We¬†also visited the Laundry Building, with much of its original equipment still in place, where over 3000 pieces of laundry were washed and sanitized daily. To say the experience was incredible would be an understatement. The texture and patterns are amazing. My only challenge, was not being able to utilize a tripod. However, because I shoot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII, I can handhold the camera for long exposures with the built-in 5 axis image stabilization. My two main lenses for this shoot were the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO and M.Zuiko ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO.

Belly of the Beast (post 3 of 3)

This is the final post of the images from the former Bethlehem Steel plant. This post will consist of images of rust or the oxidation process. It is amazing to see the various forms of art when you just look at small segments of this massive complex.

Belly of the Beast (post 2 of 3)

This is a follow up post from the one I did on Thursday. These Bethlehem Steel images are in the “E” Cast Floor within the Blast Furnace. Several images are of the “stoves”. A special thank you to my shooting partner and Bethlehem Steel aficionado Bruce Ward. He was kind enough to help me the the proper nomenclature.

Belly of the Beast (post 1 of 3)

Over a year ago I was afforded another opportunity to enter The Belly of the Beast (aka the former Bethlehem Steel Plant). I am breaking this into 3 parts. The first one consists of images of the inside journey.
