Along the Road (2014)


Seaside Regional Center — Waterford, Connecticut

Time to move on to another location, but don’t worry, I have plenty of Seaside images in my picture vault for another visit. Whatever the plans are for making this location into a State park, I doubt that what remains will be able to keep the charm and wonder of the site if they choose to raze these structures.

  1. I really like your Images of Pennhurst in Infrared, something that I’ve been trying to do for quite some time. I don’t have a converted camera for doing this. Just 2 screw on Filters for my 68mm Lens. I can capture a photo, but it seems when I go to change color channels it does not work right. I have not given up on it quite yet. I just have to find the right settings. Well done.

    The time that I was down to Pennhurst, there were Private Property sign’s all over the place, so I thought it best not to Trespass. I must visit that place again.

    • I had an “authorized” visit to the place, but I’m pretty stealthy with my Urbexing. What filters are you using? I know a lot of it has to do with how much the camera itself can “see” IR – typically the older the camera, the less effective the hot mirror is at blocking the IR. The shots straight out of the converted camera are pretty bad and do take a lot of work in post-processing.

      • What I have is a Hoya R72 Filter and another one that is much cheaper. I used them on my Pentax K10D. Maybe it is the camera itself, like you stated. I called Pentax about this, but was told the camera was never tested for that. Since then I have up-graded to new Nikon D7000! I just love it! The Pentax will stay for awhile, cause it is a good camera, but not as good as Nikon!
