The Paintworks – Gibbsboro NJ

On a minor detour for my Side Street Sunday post I went to the former location of Lucas Paints affectionately called “The Paintworks” of Gibbsboro New Jersey.  Looking up some of the history shows that the Lucas’ searched most rivers east of the Mississippi to find a lake that had the least amount of minerals in it and found that Silver Lake was perfect for his paint making needs.

Although they did not know it at the time the making of lead based paint contaminated the lake.  Over the years the lake was cleaned and turned into a beautiful park with a walking/running trail.

Side Street Sunday (6) – Part 1 – Black & White

Today’s Side Street Sunday post was not taken on a new road but on a road that I frequently travel.

I like to take this road because of the railroad tracks.  I like to imagine the different place that the conductor has steered his train.

Have you every imagined (only the good stuff) being a Hobo back in the day?  Stealing a ride on board one of the freight cars?  Where would you go?  Would you always live your life as a Hobo forever travelling and seeing the country or would you just like to get to a new place to start ?

The pictures were all done black and white in camera (rich tone Mono) no edits.

 

There was this machine on the tracks that I have seen before bu can only assume that it helps keep the tracks straight and remove the debris.

I made it in the local paper-2

One of my pictures made it to the SHOW US  Your South Jersey section of the

Courier Post newspaper today.

 I feel like a kid in the candy store with a pocket full of change to buy what ever I want.

I was selected for a picture that I posted here on WP on 6/27/14 “Reflections of me“.

Unfortunately I also got credited for another picture (trees framed by the brick wall) that is not mine.

 I hope the paper will make a correction.

 

 

 

Graffiti Street Gallery & The Delaware River

Took a ride with some photographers to the decaying coal pier in Port Richmond, PA (just outside Philadelphia).  This place is a hidden gem.  The pillars in his place are the canvases to these young artist.

I am assuming that this is where the ships would come in with the coal for the electic company a few miles away.

While we were there kids were even swimming in this river.

I know most of their parents would ground them if they knew what they were doing.  This could be very dangerous.
