More Pennsylvania Pictures


Back a few months ago I posted pictures from the Reading Terminal Market in
Philly. This was taken at the Farmer’s Market in Reading, across from
the Fairgrounds Mall.

This is a segment of the old Schuylkill Canal that linked the anthracite
coal region to Philadelphia. In the early nineteenth century it was one
of the busiest waterways in the land. Now it just sits, frozen over.

Here’s what put the canal out of business. The railroad, which ran parallel to the waterway about twenty yards away. Now it lies quiet too, the rails
rusted over.

I’ve been experimenting with vertical composition lately. This is just a
barren field along Rte. #895. I like the washed-out color and the lone
tree.

This is another field along the same road. This time I ramped up the
contrast to emphasize the difference between the horizontal
strips of ground.
