When I think of experimental I think back to my visit a few years ago to the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, New Jersey.
This is the chem lab..in 1887 this was one of the best equipped chemical labs in the world. Within its walls, Thomas Edison and his chemists experimented on everything from phonograph records to rubber. “Grand science, chemistry,” Edison once said, “I like it best of all the sciences.”
Here are just a few of Edisons inventions… memorabilia… anything and everything.
The prompt is: This week, share a peek of something — a photo that reveals just enough of your subject to get us interested. A tantalizing detail. An unusual perspective. Compel us to click through to your post to find out more!

October is speeding along too quickly and if I’m doing posts about October on Martha’s Vineyard I’d better get going on them.
I was lucky enough to spend 5 glorious days on the Vineyard with my daughter Deb and our friend and honorary family member, Dawn. We packed a lot into the days we were there including meeting a new step-cousin and visiting with a dear friend as well.
In this first post let’s visit the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, better known as the Campground which is located in the town of Oak Bluffs. The Campground includes the beautiful and whimsical Gingerbread cottages as well as the Tabernacle, which is one of my ‘must’ visits places.
Hope you enjoyed this autumn walk through the Campground.
Stay tuned for upcoming exciting, fun-filled and picturesque adventures. 🙂
Share a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture, you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.
I tend to like abandoned structures and also stone walls, in looking through my photographs I came across not actual stone walls but the stone wall ruins of an abandoned woolen mill in Dingman’s Ferry, PA.
Around 1826 Joseph Brooks, a Welshman who had immigrated to Philadelphia built a woolen mill of stone, 3 1/2 stories high in Dingmans Ferry. He employed about 80 workers.
His sheep however, were devoured by wolves or died from eating poisonous laurel. Supplies, operatives and materials such as expensive raw wool, had to be brought in from Philadelphia and the finished products shipped back to Philadelphia by wagons, a trip which took 10 days. Brooks died in 1832 and the mill was abandoned. Here are my pictures of the ruins of the mill.
In this week’s challenge, share a photo or photos that plays on any of the word’s many meanings.

Thomas Edison’s library in West Orange, New Jersey. I love the idea of a bed in the corner.
High Point monument in the northwestern corner of New Jersey where NJ/PA/NY meet.
This and that.
