Here is another image from my recent visit to Belchertown State School. Next to Monday’s image it might be my favorite. Urbex locations like this work better for me when you can convey an air of mysterious creepiness. Or is it “creepy mysteriousness”? Anyway, revisiting Belchertown was a treat. It had been over a year …

I took last Friday off to go and visit my son out in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It is about a three hour drive from where we live. Not a terribly long drive, but long enough to warrant a break – a few minutes from driving to stretch the legs. It just so happens, about halfway between …

  I had to take a drive to the western part of Massachusetts this past Monday which, coincidently enough, put me within striking range of one of the most memorable places I’ve shot in the past couple of years.
