Halloween House Tour-3

In my neighborhood we can expect about 300 kids this Saturday. Seems like everyone decorates a little bit but there are certain houses in Regent Square that are Legend. So over the next few days I will be posting a few of the more dramatic Houses of Horror! This Zombie Rehab is on the street directly behind my house.

Best Year for Color–2012

Every year people flock to our state to see the beautiful Autumn foliage. If you don’t live in Pennsylvania you will be awed and happy you made the visit. However observing this every year makes some people, especially photographers obnoxious and cynical critics. Different weather factors impact the color. The temperature, humidity, rain fall and wind all impact how colorful and widespread the foliage panorama will appear.

2012 was the perfect storm for fall color in The Northeast. Of course it is a regional thing, one year the color may be better in Maine than Pennsylvania or New Hampshire may be the best. However, in 2012 it was prefect throughout the region. This is a 2012 flashback taken in October 2012 in the Pocono Mountains.

Cruz Bay…St. John USVI

St. John in the United States Virgin Islands is one of the most laid back places on earth. 60% of the island is protected as Virgin Islands National Park, administered by the United States National Park Service. There is not a stop light on the island. There are two major resort hotels and a variety of restaurants and cafes. You get around the island by taking open air jitney cabs, walking or riding bikes. The snorkeling, hiking and beaches are some of the best in the world. I can’t wait to go back.

I just found this picture which was taken in Cruz Bay from the balcony of Pusser’s Grill in 1996. The restaurant is no longer there but I am sure the sunsets are still beautiful. I have posted this sunset before from the same dock on a different day.

Frick Park Fairy Doors

Frick Park in Pittsburgh is over 650 acres and the largest in the city. It has a wonderful collection of trails, two dog parks,playgrounds, baseball fields and even an occasional black bear can be spotted along with deer, rabbits and other forest creatures. Unknown to me until recently is that apparently fairies or Leprechauns also live in the park.

Along the Tranquil trail you can find many of these doors built in to tree stumps or even living trees. I have asked people about them and some say that parents construct them with their children. I don’t believe that for a minute. They must be fairy doors. I mean what else can they be?

Spade Art

How do people conceive of this sort of artistic project? To me this is like inventing the wheel. Did this artist start as a sculptor? Was this done by hand or by some programmed cutting laser? We found these at a local antique store in Evans City during Living dead Weekend. I guess I will have to go back to find out the answers to my questions.

More from Evans City

Evans City Pennsylvania has long been the epicenter of the Zombie culture. It was here that George Romero largely photographed Night of the Living Dead which is the movie that really started the zombie phenomenon. A few years ago The Living Dead Museum moved to Evans City. The museum had previously been in Monroeville Mall. Over the last three years they have had had a free three day event which features location tours, photo ops with the stars from the films,costume and car parades and other fun events.

This year I went with friends to promote my book Zombie Nights and of course I took a few pictures. Here are a few more images from the event.
