Generally, I am quite long winded in my posts, but on this occasion, I am going to REALLY try to keep the words to a minimum and the photos to a maximum. After all, this story was a very visceral adventure for me and I hope it will be for you too.
A while back I did a shoot at a really cool old theatre in Blossburg, PA called the Victoria. To this date it has been one of my most popular stories and galleries here on my site. Through that shoot I met the wonderful owners Tom and Tonya MacNamara and Tonya’s dad, Pete Gorda. While I was shooting various parts of the theater Pete and the family looked on in wonderment and at one point, Pete approached me, gave me a nudge and whispered, “You have to see my barn sometime”. Then he gave me a smile and a wink and wandered off into the theater somewhere. Since the shoot I have tried to help the theater with a new website and promotion, and my band “Wendy Owens and Renegade” did a show there, and about a week ago, Tonya sent me an email exclaiming that Pete just bought a church! And, if I were interested that I should contact her to arrange to come down and do another shoot. I love this stuff so there was no way I was going to say, “no” to an opportunity like this. We quickly set up a date and thus the adventure was set into motion.
