Scroll down to see some of the amazing places I've had the pleasure of photographing, and learn a little history while you're at it!
CALIFORNIA - EMERALD BAY, LAKE TAHOE
Emerald Bay is one of the most photographed areas in the country. Fannette Island is the only island on Lake Tahoe, and is home to the "Tea House", a small rock and mortar building built by Lora Josephine Knight. 

ARIZONA - CHLORIDE

Dating back to 1864, this old mining town is home to only 250 people. In the mountains behind the small ghost town, artists have created murals through a hidden canyon. 

ILLINOIS - DAMEN SILOS, CHICAGO

Built in 1832, then rebuilt after a massive fire destroyed them, the Damen Silos were the first "skyscrapers" in Chicago. Over the years, many disastrous events led to them being abandoned. Today, they decay amongst the beautiful Chicago skyline. 


IDAHO - IDAHOME

After wheat crops flourished in this dry farm area, Idahome sprang up here in 1916 as a railroad terminal. Irrigation projects boosted its economy. When wheat farms disappeared and highway traffic replaced rail service here, Idahome became a ghost town. Its grain elevators, lumberyards, stores, airport, oil company, school, newspaper and people are only past memories. An elevator and a few building foundations mark its site.

NEW JERSEY - BINGHAMTON FERRY
The Binghamton Ferry transported people from New Jersey to Manhattan starting in 1905. It became a floating restaurant in the 70's, and was finally dismantled in 2017.
