Spooky House

This house was spooky, but also really cool. I’m sure in its time it was really something. This is in Franklin, West Virginia.

Dusk in Mississippi

I took this at the Shack Up Inn just outside of Clarksdale, Mississippi. It is great to be back in the Delta.

The Biltmore

This is the beautiful Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. It is the largest private home in America.

A Very Pink House

If Barbie lived in Charleston, South Carolina, I think she would live here. It is pretty amazing architecture though.

Grafton House

I like tiny Grafton ghost town in southeast Utah. I have taken a lot of photos here. This house has been getting some work done to preserve it over the last few years. Life was tough in Grafton, but the scenery is hard to beat.

Plantation Barn

This is the main barn on the Latta Plantation outside of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Savannah

It was so nice to be back in Savannah, Georgia. Not the best day to take photos, but it is such a beautiful city that the I ignored the overcast sky and took a bunch anyway.

Plantation House

This is Houmas House, the main building on what was once one of the largest sugar plantations in the country. It is near Gonzales, Louisiana.

Abandoned Inn

It always amazes and saddens me to see such a beautiful building in such a state of disrepair. I would love to know more of the history of this building located in the Blue Mountain Lake area of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in New Jersey.

Millbrook Houses

And one last one from Millbrook Village in Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in Western New Jersey.

Rural New Jersey

I’m back! Sorry about the silence everyone. After two years of American Photo Blog I finally hit a stretch where I just couldn’t get around to taking or posting any photos. I got home safely from Belize and had to turn around and quickly start preparing for another summer on the highways and back roads of North America. Tomorrow I will officially be back on the road. Today I had a chance to catch my breath and go out and shoot. This is a beautiful building in Millbrook Village in Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area here in Western New Jersey.

Rural Mississippi

I can only assume that these are old sharecropping cabins in the rural heart of the Mississippi Delta. This was somewhere along the old Moorehead-Belzoni Road.

Springwood

This is Springwood, the former home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park, New York. FDR once famously said “all that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River”. This is that home.

Vanderbilt Mansion

This is one of the parlors in the fascinating Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site in Hyde Park, New York. Given to the National Park Service virtually intact, it is an interesting look into the wealth of the Gilded Age and definitely a look at how the other half lives.
