Digging into the archives, here’s one from 2010. Winter 2010 saw fresh snow on the ground for a photo charter on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. At that time we were celebrating Mr. Helmstetter’s new barn which was built with the help of railfans to replace the one he lost in a tragic fire the previous summer.
A fixture in the Baltimore skyline since 1951, the Domino Sugars sign is classic Baltimore. When Domino announced that they were going to replace the aging neon sign with LED, I made a trip to photograph the sign while it retained its original neon.
In June I had the opportunity to photograph Klotz Throwing Company for the third time. With the roof rapidly deteriorating, I made sure not to miss this opportunity. On this trip, I focused on the details.
A little ground fog appeared in the basement of the Klotz Throwing Company after a brief rain shower during the June Abandoned America Workshop. One of those right place, right time type of moments. I hope to see Klotz again, but given the roof condition this year, I’m fearful that I’ve made my last visit.
I haven’t photographed the Frederick Fair in a couple of years, and the weather may not cooperate this year, so we’ll dig into the archives for one of my favorites from years past. I was walking back to my car after photographing the midway at night and this food vendor caught my eye. Thought it would look nice in black and white.
