PA Live! Blog of the Week: Burnside Photographic

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on the WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Watch this episode on the PA Live! site: 

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Burnside Photographic (http://burnsidephotographic.com/wordpress/).

Mike Burnside is a native of Northeastern Pennsylvania who has been highly active in the NEPA community for many years. He is a veteran of the local media scene as well as a member of the Cultural Council of Luzerne County. And for the past five decades he has also been a photographer, capturing images in a broad range of formats.

And what images! He refers to his photography as "abstract work grounded in nature." He does extreme close-up work (see this study of water and ice), but also takes spectacular images of landscapes (like this compilation of images taken last Autumn) and even the un-natural works of man (like these heartbreaking yet beautiful images of what was once the luxurious Penn Hills resort.) He also finds the hidden treasures along the way - when a visit to a baseball museum turned out to be disappointingly unphotogenic, a nearby clock repair shop provided the most amazing opportunities for photographs.

Northeastern Pennsylvania has many fine photographers, and Mike Burnside is one who has chosen to share his images though his blog, Burnside Photographic.  We may not all have his skill, eye, and experience, but if you have a camera and a computer, you can start capturing your own images and sharing them with the world on a blog. And if you do, be sure to let us know, and we'll list it on NEPA Blogs!

If you have a blog you would like us to link on NEPA Blogs, or know of a blog you think we should link, please let us know! You can always drop us a line at nepablogs@gmail.com!

All are invited to meet the bloggers of Northeastern Pennsylvania at the Spring 2012 Blog Fest on March 30, 2012 at Rooney's Irish Pub in Pittston! Stay tuned for more details!
