I will be relocating to one of the offices upstairs in the Emerson House. It will be wonderful to have a location to work and meet with people to discuss my on location photography right in downtown Milford, PA, which is in Pike County near the Delaware River.
The Emerson House is a unique place in this historic town full of quaint shops and antique stores. It is a wonderful bakery with a wide selection of fresh baked breads and pastries as well as soup and sandwich selections for lunch.
You can also see my platinum prints on display downstairs in the Patisserie Fauchere. So come on over and say hello. We can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea together right here in this beautiful town located in the Poconos.
I had just finished helping my wife get her printer up and running at work and was going to pick up some Chinese food at Chang Mao. On my way I remembered that I wanted to photograph the Progressive Health building’s front facade that is adorned with Christmas lights. It is probably the most tastefully decorated establishment in this historic hamlet in the Poconos. I quickly grabbed my Leica M9 with a 35/2 Summicron lens attached to quickly grab the image I had pre-visualized in my head for weeks now.
When I got there, half the lights were turned off already so I was quite disappointed. I was about to head off to pick up the Shrimp with Lobster Sauce and Chicken CHow Mein that was waiting for me. Fortunately, the Pike County Public Library, which is currently located inside the Milford Community House also known as the “Pinchot Homestead.” on Harford St. called out to me so I went over there and took a quick shot at ISO 1600, f/5 at 1/30th of a second. Shooting a rangefinder handheld at 1/30th of a second is not a problem as there is no mirror that clunks closed when the shutter is released
Next year I will have to get a shot of the other buildings earlier in the season. Oh, and a little snow would be nice as well.
