Rise and Shine
In many years of photography I had never been one to get up early, but I loved the evening hours. That changed. Recently I have been working on a small self-assignment to photograph at dawn, mostly near home in Pittsburgh. Combining interests in railroads and steel mills has provided the foreground for my series.                                                                                                                                                                                                           Kevin Scanlon.
