Alcatraz

By dave | 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

By dave | 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

By dave | 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!

By dave | 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

By dave | 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…

Cape Cod 2021

By dave | 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…

Ramage Paper Mill

By dave | December 22, 2020

The Ramage Paper Mill was a fairly typical paper mill on the shores of the Deerfield River in Monroe, MA. I had found it the typical way – scouring the internet and browsing satellite imagery. Being fairly far from home, I scouted it during a drive I took out here with a friend during the…

Packard Plant – Trip 5

By dave | June 15, 2020

Several of these pictures were never published on my old site, so I figured I might as well make this a new post that is not back dated to a time close to where the pictures were originally posted. Packard Plant Trip 4 produced some fairly unremarkable night shots before we retired to The Pyramid…
