Kentuck Knob is the “other” Frank Lloyd Wright house in western Pennsylvania, about 15 minutes drive from Fallingwater. It’s worth a visit just to experience the contrasts between the two designs, not to mention the lovely art walk at the Knob.
Month: June 2021
I’ve just spent time going through the photos from my visit to Fallingwater. Honestly, I feel like I should just post photos because my words clearly aren’t going to do justice to the place.

Whether it’s been with my iPhone or my Sony A7III, I’ve been working on my skills, which is pretty much the point for me of the project. Let’s dive in to four recent photos… Week 22: Wide Angle I have a big wide angle lens, which is great when I have big open spaces, but this week, I was in the ‘burbs of Lancaster, PA, and not really with the time to go find open space. Enter the iPhone 12 and…
