About the header image: Wednesday, May 16, 2012


This week's header image is by urban archaeologist Cheri Sundra. It's one of several she's shared with us of the decaying interior of the once-proud Hotel Sterling in downtown Wilkes-Barre. The faded majesty of this place still comes through, yet the transition to ruins by way of decades of neglect and vandalism adds another strange and tragic layer of beauty.

Cheri has gone to great lengths and taken considerable risks to get these images. But so many aspects of the uniqueness of NEPA present themselves to us freely and ask nothing more than for us to open a shutter.  If you have an image that you think captures some aspect of the personality of Northeastern Pennsylvania, please consider sending it to us a nepablogs@gmail.com for use as a header for a week.

Well put. Nice shot.
