Gaelic Storm Piper during the 2014 Celtic Fling on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. I'm not a big fan of concerts, but Gaelic Storm puts on one hell of a show. They really bring the crowd in to participate and it is a ton of fun.

One of my fireworks shots at last year's New years Eve celebration in Downtown Lancaster. This was captured on the 8th floor of The Hotel Lancaster.
A view out over downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania from the 8th floor of The Hotel Lancaster during the New Years Eve 2014 dropping of the rose. A big crowd came out to watch the show and the view from up here was spectacular. This was captured using a Sigma 8mm Fisheye. I processed this using Photomatix HDR tonemapping software to help bring more detail to the cityscape.

Morning trot a little throwback to warmer mornings. It's been sitting on hard drives waiting to be noticed again.
Horse trotting through the pasture just after the sunrise. Beautiful early morning in the countryside of rural Pennsylvania.

I always enjoy capturing photos of the locomotives at the +Strasburg Rail Road.

This was a single RAW image I tonemapped for HDR to give it a bit more vibrance.

475 locomotive at Strasburg Railroad shortly before it pulled into the station, with their fully restored Victorian era "Marian" parlor car. This is a single RAW image tonemapped for HDR.

Going through some photos from the last couple of weeks. I always love my foggy morning walks!!
Some early morning fog in the Lancaster County countryside, with the sunrise just behind it. The sun hasn't even touched the foreground where the fence winds throught the field.

I captured this at the Spruce Street Harbor Park in Philadelphia. I was on one of Trey Ratcliff's photowalks for the #treyusa tour this past summer, when we ended up in the middle of everyone coming out for First Friday. I believe this fits nicely within the future cities assignment. As more and more people live within cities it is important to find ways to encourage a strong sense of community. I love that Philly, and smaller cities like Lan...

A look down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway Saturday night. I was hoping to capture some light trails, but they had already setup for the Philadelphia marathon the next morning. I like them there though, and now I have a reason for another trip down there.

Looking down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at night from the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (you know, the steps from the Rocky movie). I was initially a little disappointed because I wanted to capture some light trails going down the parkway towards city hall, but the grandstands were already in place for the 2015 Philadelphia Marathon the next morning. I think they add their own uniqueness to the scene though, particularly in monoc...

I submitted this for the "Future Cities" challenge on YourShot. I felt the +Lancaster County Community Foundation 's annual #extragvie  event is vital to the success of future cities so I commented about it a little.

find out more about the #extragive  at http://extragive.org.
I'm submitting this for the future cities challenge. This photo was captured during the 2014 Extragive event by the Lancaster County Community Foundation. The Foundation was able to raise $4.47m for local non-profits through one day of charitable giving. Events like this will be a vital to future cities. Particularly in times like this in which Pennsylvania still has not passed a state budget. While they are playing politics in the capitol, th...

Deep from the heart of Amish Country, but a bird of a different feather!
Introduction
From deep in the heart of Amish Country, but a bird of a different feather. This is the main social profile where I share my world, whatever that may include.

Why do I do it?

  1. I want to connect with people, share ideas, and grow.
  2. I want to help break down the barriers that prevent people from sharing what they have to say.
  3. I want to speak for those who don't have a voice, or those who can't seem to be heard.
  4. I want to create from scratch, but also improve that which already exists.
  5. I want to change the world, one action at a time.

What do I do?

I was born and raised in Lancaster County, PA. I currently have a video podcast called the Amish Road Show where I showcase activities and destinations in Lancaster County. Be sure to circle my Amish Road Show page, and visit the site at http://www.amishroadshow.com.

I am also very interested in making the world a more well connected place. You can find my musings about Internet Marketing, SEO, Web Design, and more on my Dochter Digital Media page, and my blog at http://www.dochterdigitalmedia.com. I like to keep these types of posts separate from my main G+ content, so be sure to circle the page.

Through DDM I want to create valuable and entertaining content, promote online relationship building, share my ideas, share others' ideas, avoid spin, and coordinate and/or facilitate a variety of meaningful projects. Most of all I want to help empower people.

What are my other interests?

I have a lot going on at one time, but here are a few more of my interests:
  • People
  • Social Media (I hate that term)
  • Art
  • Creative Projects
  • Technology
  • Science
  • Alternative Sports
  • Video
  • Photography
  • Writing
  • Podcasting
  • Blogging
  • Learning
  • Sharing
  • and connecting (networking)

What would I like you to do?

Please feel free to send me a private message and tell me what circles you would like to be in, based on your interests. While you're writing tell me a little something about yourself. I would like to get to know the people I'm sharing with a little better.

Stay awesome!

I stopped in once during a Photowalk around Lititz. I really loved the atmosphere and the meats on display looked very delicious! I took the first opportunity I had to go back with the wife. We got the Italian Sub, and the Roast Beef sandwich. I can't even describe how great they were. It was like the meats just melted in my mouth. The staff was super fast and friendly. I even went out to the car to grab some cash for a tip. I recommend them to everyone!

Friendly staff and first class bike shop! They offer rentals, tours, and maps. Great place to visit and get a great ride through the countryside.

The Stoltzfus family use the milk from their grass fed cows to make the most delicious cheeses. Their smoked cheddar is very tasty. To be fair they are my lifelong friends, but they are a great family who make a great product. They even sell and ship their cheeses and gift baskets online. Hidden gem of Amish Country.

This was our first exposure to vinegar and olive oil tasting. They have a huge and very tasty selection. They also have a variety of seasonings available for tasting. Not a place we would visit everyday, but an interesting experience and a whirl wind of dish ideas.
