1977 was the final year of production for the original Ford Bronco. Ford's first foray into the world of compact sport utility vehicles, in many ways the Bronco set the stage for the modern day SUV as we know it. A surprisingly plush ride, I could not have asked for a better day cruising around South Jersey soaking up the final rays of winter.
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.
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.
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 snaps of the sky from my first visit to Coney Island, what a strangely photogenic place.
Steve Powers is someone I've been following since I first learned of his work in the documentary Beautiful Losers. I was immediately drawn to his ubiquitous lettering style. It's so simple, fitting seamlessly into any place and any time yet is somehow immediately recognizable as ESPO. A few weeks ago while exploring Brooklyn on my bike I stopped at ESPO's Art World to check out what he had going on. It's absolutely a dream to have a space of my own to fill with art and bikes and old film cameras and it was incredibly inspiring to poke around someone else's dream space.
