On a recent trip to the Philadelphia area it was a gorgeous day on my return to the Pittsburgh area. I recently shared some photographs from Middle Creek Wildlife Management area that I detoured to. On the remainder of my trip, I detoured off the Pennsylvania turnpike and opted for some back road driving. One never knows what kind of photo opportunities await. Here are some interesting sites that I photographed - both in the Philadelphia area as well as the back roads on my way home.
First, these were taken in the Philadelphia area before my return. The church is the Christ Ascention Lutheran Church (Chestnut Hill), built in 1871. I'm not sure what the wooden door is - it is smaller than a typical door opening, my guess is maybe this was to a food cellar or cooler at one point?
And sorry, I can't just pass up a good colorful pig!
And here we pick up on the backroads home - I also can't resist larger than life roosters.
A new find for my Mail Pouch Tobacco collection.
Loved the vintage Gulf Station in Bedford PA.
And I had read about 'Vincent van Gas' pump so that was worth the stop, where I also found the Esso neon sign (would have been nice to have seen it lit up).
I've passed this log building in the cemetery (I usually pass by it and don't bother turning around). This time I took the time to go back.
And I don't see many bison fields in Pennsylvania so this was kind of neat.
All photographs were taken with a Canon 6d and EF 24-70mm f2.8L
