I have both driven and ridden my bike over the Indian River Inlet bridge many times since they rebuilt it in 2012. Every time I cross at night, I am completely blown away by how beautiful it is. On my last visit I had my tripod and the rest of my inaugural roll of Cinestill 800 from the The York County Fair.
Fun Fact: Halation, according to the Google, is the spreading of light beyond its proper boundaries to form a fog around the edges of a bright image in a photograph or on a television screen. It is also the primary reason that I have fallen in love with so many Cinestill 800 photos. The halation, especially of red light, is absolutely incredible and really makes it feel straight out of an old movie.
A few months ago during my PHL -> NYC Shop Visit Extravaganza! I finally picked up a roll of Cinestill 800, a tungsten motion picture film that was adapted for still photography. For my first go at it, I brought a tripod along to the York County Fair.
There are few things I cherish more than cruising Upper Bucks County in late October and it was great to share it with my good buddy Dan. I've slowly started bringing a little Olympus Stylus with me and was experimenting with shooting position and proximity. This ride also included incredible baked oatmeal and coffee from one of my all time favorite spots.
I found some good people on a sunny day in the middle of a field. They offered me beer and love and only asked for the same in return. A fair trade I would say.
Finally! The second installment of From Where I Ride is here. This time I lugged my trusty K1000 around good ole Bucks County! Many of these roads are amongst my favorites and although I ride them with some frequency, there is always something new to see. From a hungry Tyrannosaurus rex to a flock of butterflies, you never quite know what you're going to run into. With a few steeper climbs than my average ride, this one really got that blood pumpin'!
The first Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964 and changed the face of American sports cars forever.
This tower is one of maybe a handful of concrete towers that dot the Delaware shoreline. They were built during World War II with the purpose of defending US shores from German submarines. Most of the towers lay abandoned and are permanently inaccessible.
Below is a small collection of photos shot on Lomochrome Purple of the elevated section of the abandoned Reading Viaduct. I have been lucky enough to spend a great deal of time exploring both the elevated and subterranean sections of the viaduct and it is truly a special place. A small portion of the elevated section is currently under construction and slowly being turned into a beautiful park for everyone to enjoy! I'm excited to see what the future holds for this place.

Some shots from my first roll through a little Olympus Stylus I snagged on eBay. There's nothing like a sunny afternoon spent with good buds!
Some snaps of the sky from my first visit to Coney Island, what a strangely photogenic place.
