The Slow Trip Back to the Old Lorton Reformatory, Lorton, Va.

Photo by Rob Paine/Deep Creek Images/Copyright 2017

A couple of weeks ago we were checking out the old Lorton Reformatory which is being converted to condos, yes, you read that right, condos. On the way out I captured this image of a turtle making the long slow climb back to the old prison site. In the background you can see the tops of some of the old prison buildings. Please see a second  photo below.  Read more

Living Healthy Longer with the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics

For the past week I have been photographing the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics. Competitors range in age from 50 years old to 100. They are quite an inspiring group of men and women. Look below for a small sampling of some of the events I have seen. The event continues thru Wednesday. For more information on the NVSO please visit http://www.nvso.us Read more

One of My Favorite Places : Pittsburgh


The more time I spend in Pittsburgh the more I am of the opinion that the Steel City is one of the most photogenic towns in the country. How high on my list is it? I would include it in my top three, with Boston, 2, and San Francisco, number one.  Two of my favorite vantage points are on Mount Washington and from the window of a Just Ducky Tours duck boat.

The shot above of downtown Pittsburgh was taken through a window in the Monongahela Incline toll house on Mount Washington. The shot below was also taken atop Mount Washington. The city has some great lines and patterns. Please see below for more photos and text. Read more
