While 80-90% of my photography is for others – events, family sessions, headshots, et al – I try hard to carve out time for myself and to keep my creative spark alive and well. So, when an opportunity to visit an abandoned church in PA came up – I jumped! Carefully. Some of the floor in places was dicey. On one hand, the place made me very sad, that such a thing of beauty was left to decay ro such an extent. On the other hand, I was there as a witness of sort, to save what was there for the future. If you’re interested in going on one of these tours, email me and I will send you the website for info. The person who runs it/them is a very good photographer and also has a sense of history and wants to save what they can – at least as photographs.
