"Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph."

Pretty Patina Photography Magazine Feature & New Website Launch!

A lot of discovery and recognition has been stirring in the underground world of Abandoned Photography. The niche subject matter has piqued the interest of Adirondack Life Magazine who was kind enough to interview me last spring about my photographic adventures for an article in their current Sept./Oct. Issue. The feature story, “Abandoned Adirondacks. Finding Beauty in Decay” , included very fitting quotes about my explorations, a brief background of my Adirondack adventures with my soon to be 90 year old vivacious grandmother, and nine of my photographs from inside the Adirondack Park.

My favorite photo from London.

My favorite photo from London.

I was fortunate enough to travel to two locations over the summer for non-photo related business and I had some downtime to capture some fascinating locations. First, I was sent to hot and humid Miami, Florida where I stayed put inside the glorious air conditioned 5 star resort, Turnberry Isle. Next, I flew to London, England where I stayed at the haunted yet charming Selsdon Park Hotel arriving to sunny, mid 60’s, breezy, and zero humidity weather. Needless to say, I was out and about exploring London all 7 days I was there.
