Firestone Canada

green floor
The floor of the Firestone Tire Factory in Hamilton, Ontario has a characteristic greenish glow that seems to be common in tire factories. Much like Uniroyal Tire in Chicopee, MA the production floor is wide open with a filmy green coating on the windows.

Brendan was walking across the frozen production floor as I was setting up this long exposure. I made him stop long enough to take this shot, a frame I'm now very pleased with.

ORC Hallway

Often the mark of a successful shoot is being able to feel the moment in the finished product. This hallway shot is by far one of the most successful shots of my trip to Ontario. It was beyond freezing, snow blowing sideways on the biting wind when we went to see the last remaining building of this old hospital. There wasn't much left to the building but I stopped in the hallway and set up this shot, inadvertently capturing the snow blowing in through the ceiling. The colors are deep and rich against the snow and the details of the photo are crisp and exciting, much like the whole day.

St. Mary's Church

This church was demolished recently, the front being the only portion being saved as an historical landmark. It was the first time I took my camera out on my trip, forcing everyone to be patient while I played the temperamental artiste in order to capture this unique remainder of this building.

And last but not least, to wrap up this post, a new and developing interest it seems is photographing trains. Often one finds a love in trying something that interests those they love so here are two more attempts at shooting the rails!

WSH Night Shot


While waiting to meet up with some friends from Canada I decided to take a night shot of the Worcester State Hospital clocktower. The road in front of the clocktower is closed now due to construction which made it difficult to find a good angle to shoot from, but in the end, this was the best vantage point to capture the stars and the beautiful pink in the night sky.
