So I’ve been working on some new things as photography has become a little stale to me. I’ve always been fascinated by video and now even more with the purchase of a drone.
So it’s a new challenge for me and something to learn and practice everyday. I haven’t given up on photography, I’m just adding a different type of photography to my passion.
Below are a couple of the videos I did recently hope you enjoy them. Just remember this is a new venture and I’m still in the learning process.
The video above is of Wharton Iron Furnace located in Fayette County, Pa. The furnace, built by Congressman Andrew Stewart, ran from 1839- 1850 producing cast iron. During the civil war the furnace produced cannon balls.
Above is a video of the Watering Trough park on the National Road in Fayette County.
The Watering Trough started as a house after the Revolutionary War. Eventually developing into a restaurant which lasted well into the late 1990’s. The new park is a great little spot to have a picnic and enjoy the some of the great history that Fayette County has to offer. The Park is located on Route 40, West, below Jumonville Road and the Summit Inn.
I hope you enjoy my video from up in the air as well as a walk around the park.

On Friday night I got the opportunity to drive a 1970 Z28 Camaro to the local car show for a great night out with some friends and family. I must say there really is something about the low growl of a muscle car. Looking forward to the next show with anticipation and excitement.
Included with this post is several of the cars at the show. Look for the orange and black Camaro that’s the one I drove to the show. (insert large smile here).
As I was driving home from work this evening I had the privilege of seeing a beautiful sunset. Unfortunately, I was unable to stop anywhere to get a shot. But, it got me thinking of several photos that I have taken over the last couple of years and I thought I would share them with you. I leave you with this poem that I found about sunsets:
The sunset glistens upon the land,
with people standing hand in hand,
the beauty that it brings to them,
the magic that it sings to them.
The sunset shines upon the ground,
with people standing, staring, astound,
the colors soaking into them,
the art evoking heart in them.
The sunset of life and love,
the sunset soaring in the heavens like a dove,
the sunset fills us up with mystery,
the sunset with an irreplaceable history.

Let me know which of the sunsets you like the best.
