I had the wonderful opportunity to accompany Matthew Christopher on two of his Abandoned America photography Workshops to the Scranton Lace Company in Scranton Pennsylvania.  In 2002, when the business was no longer profitable, the compound of buildings, which once accommodated 1,400 workers, was abandoned and left to fall into ruin.

It was phenomenal to experience the calm and serenity of a place frozen in time.

iris-emergingwatercolorborder2pmatteAfter the Rockland Photography Club’s recent Pictorial evaluation, quite a few people asked what type of border I used for my photo “Iris Emerging”.  Here’s the story:  I downloaded some brush packages, and added them to my Brush collection in Photoshop.  Using select brushes, I created the custom border for my photograph.  I credit the following video from the the Photoshop Video Academy for offering some clear instruction to help guide the process.
