Liam’s Light is the first children’s book I’ve had a delightful desire illustrating for a freelance client I met while attending my Alma Mater, Salem State University. The children’s book, dedicated to my client’s nephew, uses a celestial depiction explaining to Liam where we came from, which is from the stars in the milky way galaxy.
(This book is non-fiction; none of the statements used are from a scientific origin.)
Patrick, my travel companion, and I took the hour and a half drive from the Northshore to Clinton Massachusetts. Our destination is the abandoned train tunnel from the 1930’s. Centuries later the tunnel has been decorated by graffiti artists work and local partiers beer cans, the purpose of our journey is to experiment photographing Patrick holding a blue smoke grenade at the tunnel’s entrance. I have taken photographs with smoke grenades before with Patrick, but never at an abandoned train tunnel that seems endless.
Patrick and I plan to go back and take photographs from the other end. But, before we left we took several long exposure shots with sparklers I had from Forth of July.
Enjoy and Explore an Abandoned Place.
