The Homestead

Photographed in Forsyth County North Carolina in 1981 this homestead was once part of a big farm that was found on a backroad while I was touring the area, it appears to be a very early 1800 structure built of log slabs and filler. I originally photographed it in color 35mm film but decided to converted it to B/W with Photoshop to capture its historic character.

Glen Island Castle

The Glen Island castle was built in Germany and reconstructed at its new home in New Rochelle New York in the late 1800's and was part of John Starin's resort, after many changes over the decades since its conception it became part of The Glen Island Casino's surroundings, a popular place during the WW2 era where many of the Big Bands played often.
The castle still stands today though mostly abandoned, the last I remember and at the time of this photograph in 1981 it was used for the storage of the local Iona College's rowing team's boats and supplies.
