East Point Lighthouse

East Point Lighthouse 
Heislerville, NJ 

I love a good lighthouse. 
I'm not exactly sure what draws me in - 
the light, the coast, the architecture? 
Maybe it is the sum of all things 
and the fact that modern gps services 
just can't compete with a good old-fashioned view. 
Unless, of course, you are lost.

For the Love of All Things Historic

Collapsing

This photography thing is getting expensive.
And I don't mean the buying-new-lenses-fun-kind of expensive.

Grand Entry

Most recently, it was the
Pssssssssssssssssss kind of expensive.
You know, the Pssssssssssssssssss that comes with a flat tire?
The not-so-fun kind of expensive.

Who would have expected a flat tire in a cemetery?
Or even worse,
in an abandoned cemetery in west Philly?

Fallen 

Thankfully,
I have had enough frights and
learned not to make these trips alone.

Forgotten 

So I was in good company with photo friends
when Dane from AAA came and saved the day.

Dane had us back among the living in no time.
Thanks Dane.

All images are from the 
largest abandoned cemetery in the USA, 
the historic Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Philadelphia, 
where the Friends of Mt. Moriah Cemetery 
are working to preserve and restore this owner-less cemetery. 
Thanks to the kind and helpful board president, 
Paulette Rhone, for helping us find our way within the cemetery.

Goodnight Moon

supermoon 5988
The Supermoon, August 10, 2014 
rises over the Philadelphia Museum of Art 
along the banks of the Schuylkill River. 

I bracketed my images 
and combined two in post in order to 
achieve a properly exposed moon 
with a properly exposed museum. 

I climbed down a steep, rocky, weedy hill 
along Martin Luther King Dr. 
in order to get the reflection.  
Thankfully, I didn't slip 
with the cute but terribly impractical shoes I was wearing.
At least they weren't heels!

A girl has gotta do
what a girl's gotta do.
