Buffalo State Hospital – June 2, 2024

June 20, 2024

Another fantastic trip to Buffalo State Hospital with Preservation Works. We were able to access some of the violent wards further out in the female wing of the Kirkbride this time, which was a real treat. Some of these shots are covering the same ground from previous trips, but its the experience of photographing in…

Buffalo State Hospital – September 24, 2023

September 25, 2023

Preservation Works recently organized a photography tour of Buffalo State Hospital. Having greatly enjoyed my previous tours of the Kirkbride there was no question of whether I was going to make the 7 hour drive to Buffalo. During my previous visits in 2013 they were beginning to convert part of the building in to a…

Cathedral of Saint John the Divine

This cathedral had maybe the best light of any building I have ever been in.

Nantucket on Fuji Velvia

December 22, 2021

Despite having been to San Francisco many times, I had never been to Alcatraz. When my wife and I started our pan-California road trip in the summer of 2014 I figured it was finally time. She may have preferred that I visited prior to her being with me – not because she didn’t enjoy it,…

Beekman Hotel

December 21, 2021

I was in New York for business and we had an engagement party in Staten Island that weekend, so I took a couple days off basically just to stay at the Beekman Hotel. It has a very “Blade Runner” aesthetic in the atrium and tons of amazing metalwork railings. It is also a fantastic hotel,…

South Boston Naval Annex Building 16 – Love of Photography

October 15, 2021

In the previous 3 posts on Building 16, I have not yet touched on the most important thing about it. It is the reason I have 20 trips here in my Lightroom catalog and it is the reason I love this empty warehouse so much and care so much about it’s ultimate fate. That reason…

South Boston Naval Annex Building 16 – On Film!

October 15, 2021

It should come as no surprise that amongst the many trips to the building I took and all the photography I did there, I took some time to shoot film as well. These are shot on Fuji Neopan 1600 and Fuji Pro 160s.

South Boston Naval Annex Building 16 – Night Shots and Exploring Stories

October 15, 2021

One of the wonderful things about Building 16 was that the area was ABSOLUTELY CRAWLING WITH POLICE. State police, Boston Police, MBTA police, and various other security and law enforcement agencies all seemed to have some role in monitoring activity on the pier. On the other hand, Building 16 was a completely empty abandoned warehouse…

South Boston Naval Annex Building 16 – History

October 15, 2021

Building 16 resides in the former South Boston Naval Annex, now the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Industrial Park, and what is currently being rebranded as the “Seaport District” of Boston. The annex was a 167 acre extension of the Charlestown Navy Yard constructed on the Commonwealth Flats, an area of mud flats across the harbor…

Cape Cod 2021

October 11, 2021

Here are the photos from my 2021 trip to Cape Cod. This was my first major excursion with my new Canon R5. I own the RF 24-70 f/2.8 and rented the 15-35 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8. Was very impressed with both of the rental lenses, but will probably only wind up getting the zoom. I…
