Hey everyone,
I'm excited, and kind of nervous, to say that I'm moving my photography website to Tumblr. In this ever-changing world of online opportunities, I wanted to create a new, editorial-like venue for me to display my photography – and Tumblr does just that. My images will now have more immediate impact, the ability to post slideshows, a cleaner online setting and a way for me to boldly spotlight individual images when I'd like to. I can also post videos, quotes, etc. all in one place – which I'm very excited about.

With that said, I've gone ahead and started the blog with 4 new posts already. I invite you to join me at my new online photographic home. Please feel free to subscribe, add to your bookmarks, mark what you like, re-blog, etc. and come back often. I'm still learning all the options and will push the site to be as interesting, informative and visually stimulating as is possible.

Speaking of, I have several excellent posts from a recent road trip that took me out of the tri-state area and into one of America's most abandoned cities. Look for them on Tumblr soon…

Tom b.

Located in the heart of North Philadelphia, this former manufacturing and shipping facility was once home to the Pooley Furniture Company – maker of fine furniture and cabinetry. Although founded in 1892, records show as early as 1900 that this was the site for their business. Gutted and in fantastic shape, perhaps this building will one day be re-purposed.

For a detailed history, with emphasis on Pooley's connections to early radios, go here.

This former farmstead was on Mark's radar for quite a while and upon passing it while driving home from Williams Grove Amusement Park, we decided to hit up as well. A hoarders delight and Hazmat nightmare, this once (could-be-yet-again) beautiful home was a nice little exercise in photography.
