I have posted a new gallery on my website. This is a project I have been working on for a couple years and finally have enough images for a full gallery. I have always been intrigued with how things look in the off-season.
The photographs in the gallery are from an old family owned and family run amusement park in Pennsylvania. It is not abandoned - it is still in operation today. But it couldn't be further, in distance or atmosphere, from the big company parks of today. It is set in a rural location, far from any major metropolitan area. It sits among rolling hills and fields and underneath tall mature trees. A creek runs through the middle of the park with rickety bridges going across in several locations. There is no fence keeping everyone out since you can pay per ride - the way it was done thirty years ago. I spent several days over the course of a couple years photographing during the off-season. And while the rides look old, there is definitely pride in the park and the work they do each off season to get it ready for the families in the summer.
