Photo Upgrade Complete

Category: Photography,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 2037

For all two or three of you out there who are interested or will notice, I’ve finally completed the upgrade of all of the photos in the photos section of the site. All of the photos now have larger thumbnails and larger full size versions. I’ve also retouched any of the photos that were not previously retouched.

This slow 3 year long project is a precursor to cross-posting most of my photos to Flickr. Check out the upgraded photos right here!

SS United States

Category: Interesting Links,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 0029

This is a great article from TIME magazine about the SS United States. I’d love to see the ship turned into a museum/hotel/dining/shopping complex like the Queen Mary out in Long Beach. Marianne and I had a blast visiting the QM. (Photos of that trip are here.)

The United States could be such a cool attraction at Penns Landing instead just sitting there rusting. It’s a piece of history that needs to be preserved.

Jim Thorpe WinterFest and Yeungling Photos

Category: Photography,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 2137

Inn at Jim ThorpeOne advantage of being stuck at home all last week was that I caught up on a lot of reading and got caught up on posting photos. I posted 2 new albums from the same trip.

The first is from the WinterFest in Jim Thorpe, PA. It features ice carving, chainsaw carving, concerts, Mug Walk, shopping and all of the fun that goes along with a small town winter festival. Check it out here.

On the way home from Jim Thorpe we stopped at the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville. it was a very cool tour. Check out the photos from America’s Oldest Brewery right here.

We also stopped at a restaurant in Hershey that has inspired me to started writing some reviews for Yelp, UrbanSpoon, etc. More about that to come soon.
