    Haha, you could have just said "I'm Greek Orthodox and we can marry and be priests" and that would have been enough hahaha

    Good story though, thanks for all the details, not everyone "gets the film thing" but I'm glad you're still consuming, try and "infect" at least 1-2 film users, we need to keep this thing going!

    Stone,

    Well, yes your condensed version has the essence of it, but few people know much about the Orthodox Church and I wanted to give you (and everyone else since you asked publicly) a serious answer.
    Besides, preachers are supposed to long winded, aren't we? ;-)
    Infecting people with the film thing, definitely trying. Astonishing how many people think film is no longer made! Sad.

    I agree "is that still made??" Is said often when I'm shooting haha.

    I only know about shooting a Greek Orthodox wedding, it was... Different... I was a little shocked at some of what was said, but hey to each their own.

    Can't say more, we get into politics.

    The preachers are long winded made me laugh. Thanks

    Re: South Central Pennsylvania?

    I'm halfway between Reading and Allentown up in Berks County but I shoot mostly in the PA/NJ/MD/DE outer reaches and over the years I've compiled quite a large collection of photographically interesting locations in the Dauphin/Lebanon/York Counties area that you may want to check out.


    Dauphin County/Harrisburg area:

    Fort Hunter
    5300 N Front St
    Harrisburg, PA 17110
    40.341523,-76.90882
    N40 20 29 W76 54 31
    http://forthunter.org/
    Great old barn with victorian cupolas. Everhart Covered bridge. Access to small, cool church across the street and close proximity to Rckville Railroad Bridge that crosses the Susquehanna River.

    Gingrich's One-Room Schoolhouse
    8848 Jonestown Rd,
    Grantville, PA 17028
    (In East Hanover Community Park)
    40.363019, -76.681898
    N40 21 46 W76 40 54

    This classic old school was built in 1865 and is located in what is now East Hanover Community Park in Grantville, PA. There is a walking trail that takes you from the parking lot through the park and past this schoolhouse with its outhouse and belfry and bell.

    Lindley Murray One-Room Schoolhouse
    Asher Miner Rd
    Annville, PA 17003
    40.422261, -76.578456
    N40 25 20 W76 34 42

    Not far from Fort Indiantown Gap military base and cemetery. This one-room schoolhouse was named after Lindley Murray who was a famous grammarian and textbook author who was born in Lebanon County. The schoolhouse was built in 1850 and used as an active school up until 1944. Parking is along the road.

    The Star Barn
    270-298 Nissley Dr
    Middletown, PA 17057
    40.222997, -76.770573
    N40 13 22 W76 46 14
    http://thestarbarn.com

    Gothic style barn and out buildings (chicken house, pig house, double corn crib). If you get there after a good rain you can get a reflection shot on the pond of the barn. Weathered wood at it's best. The property has been for sale for several years and there were plans to dismantle and move the barn and its out buildings to another location but I think that fell through due to lack of funding.

    Lebanon County:

    Annville Train Station
    115 N Moyer St
    Annville, PA 17003
    40.335046, -76.503081
    N40 20 06 W76 30 11

    Built in 1895. The original location of the station was on the campus of Lebanon Valley College. In 1976, it was sold by the college and moved to a new location. In the late 90s, a group of citizens decided they wanted their train station back. The group started looking for it since no one was certain where it ended up. They found it in New Cumberland PA being used as a hobby shop. The owner of the shop had sold his property which, in addition to the train station, also included a house and barn. The new owner was willing to sell the station so in 1997, they bought it back for $7,000. It cost $50,000 to bring it back to Annville where it now sits a few blocks from the original location along an active set of railroad tracks. Nice wood shingling with dedicated parking lot.


    York County:

    Raabs One-Room Schoolhouse
    185-199 Oak Rd
    Dallastown, PA 17313
    39.914184, -76.655559
    N39 54 51 W76 39 20

    This one-room schoolhouse is located on the corner of Oak Road and Fruitlyn Drive in Dallastown, PA. It was built in 1857 on land owned by P. Joseph Raab. The current Raab's Fruit Farm stands across the street. Classes ended at this school in 1952. No dedicated parking spaces but I have gone up the hill behind the school and parked along the road. The backdrop here during Autumn is quite nice.

    Garvine Mill
    124 Garvine Mill Rd
    Fawn Grove, PA 17321
    39.755823,-76.430312
    N39 45 20 W76 25 49
    http://www.ohiobarns.com/othersites/...rvinemill.html

    This mill was built somewhere between 1800 and 1830. It is located in Fawn Township near the intersection of Garvine Mill Road and PA route 425 (aka Woodbine Road). The owner of the mill lives in the Miller's house across the road and he has been constantly updating the mill and shoring it up to preserve the structure. Giant waterwheel on the side of the mill. Parking is alongside the road. The owner is a pretty nice guy.

    Haines Shoe House
    101-197 Shoe House Rd
    York, PA 17406
    39.998962, -76.636737
    N39 59 56 W76 38 12
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haines_Shoe_House

    Giant stucco house built in the shape of a shoe. Has been an ice cream parlor, motel, restaurant and several other things during its history. Parking is alongside the road. Sort of a cheesy, touristy thing but hey, it's a giant shoe. How many of those have you shot ?

    Wallace/Cross Mill
    15716 Cross Mill Rd
    Felton, PA 17322
    39.799154,-76.540716
    N39 47 56 W76 32 26
    https://yorkcountypa.gov/parks-recre...ross-mill.html

    Nice red mill with waterwheel around back and winding creek alongside the mill. Parking is in a dedicated parking lot. Built in 1826 and restored in the early 1980s.
