Shooting Stars and the Milky Way Galaxy as seen from High Knob Overlook, World’s End State Park, PA. A meetup with Photografriends.
This was a visit to the ruins of an abandoned clothing mill/factory in Central Pennsylvania.
The mill was constructed in 1910 as The Century Throwing Company and went bankrupt when demand for silk products went south in the United States due to the introduction of cheaper synthetic Rayon products.
The factory was purchased by two brothers in 1930 and began making dresses for ladies and girls for the next sixty or so years. In the early 1990s, the factory was shutdown when cheaper manufacturing elsewhere drove it out of business.
Abandoned Places like this, once the centers of their communities, suffer from neglect and lack of investment nowadays.
This is an attempt at preserving the past and hoping that the future will be, somehow, more glorious…
Music in this video is by un automne à Lob-Nor

Fall colors as seen in Mount Taurus. Cold Spring, NY.
centralia, pa is a ghost town in columbia county nestled between different coal mining towns. In 1962, fire had spread underneath the town through the town’s mining tunnels.
We were looking for areas where smoke was rising from the earth & ended up walking down the closed section of Pennsylvania route 61 which started to collapse in the 90s as the fire was raging underneath and causing the road to cave.
We finally take a walk around what is left of the main drag in Centralia, PA.
Unfortunately we did not find as many places with smoke coming out of the ground as we hoped. The only area with smoke rising from the ground appears at the beginning of the video.
All the music you hear in the video was written and played by Nic Bommarito.
You may recall a similar mining town, Rhyolite in NV, which disappeared years ago.

The common word heard throughout the day was “Brains…Brains…”

Sandy Neck is a natural recreation and preservation space located on the southern side of Cape Cod Bay in the town of Barnstable in the state of Massachusetts. It has many trails that wind through a vast marsh housing many nesting areas for Ospreys and other local birds. Moreover, sand dunes separate the beach from the marsh in a unique composition of plantation, climate and scenery.
The video was taken mainly on the beach and trails 1 and 2. It features the following music pieces:
