Black & White Photography


The Pavilion


Sometimes the seemingly mundane subject can have an attraction that most people never see, because they do not take the time to look. For me, this is an example of that theory.

This is a simple pavilion in Deep Creek Lake State Park. It was close by to where I was set up for photographing the run portion of the SavageMan Triathlon this past weekend.

At one point I walked up to check it out and I just loved the rustic look of the whole building. And with it being empty, clean and silent it took on an aura of oneness. That is, a feeling of being alone in the outdoors where there were people walking and running just a few feet away. For the briefest moment I was in another world and another time.

Then I heard the running of footsteps and the sounds of cheering and I knew that my fantasy world had just stopped and it was time to get back to reality. In a moment of time all was peaceful and calm. Then life resumed and the world continued on.

The Pavilion stays the same…

  1. You're absolutely right! Most people don't look for "beauty" in simple places/things, etc. You truly captured a scene that would have most likely been looked over by most...but not you!!! Way to go...another superb photo!
