Description Boathouse Row is a historic site located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on the east bank of the Schuylkill River. It consists of a row of boathouses housing racing shells. Each of the ten boathouses has its own history, and all have addresses on Kelly Drive (named after famous Philadelphia oarsman John B. Kelly, Jr.). The boathouses are part of a group known as the Schuylkill Navy, which encompasses several other boathouses along the river.
Lou Ford, Honey Brook, PA Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement
I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and have lived in Southeastern PA for most of my life.
I've always been into photography - going back to my childhood days with a Kodak Instamatic. Through the years, most of my work has involved filling photo albums with family pictures and documenting family vacations. Only recently, through retirement, have I been able to dedicate more time to developing a style and building a portfolio.
I really enjoy photography. To me it is a way to get out and enjoy and celebrate the beauty of God's creation. As you can see from my galleries, I have a wide range of photographs - flowers and water lilies, cityscapes, travel and landscape photos, photos of rural Pennsylvania around my home, hummingbirds, and digitally altered works. I hope to add even much more variety as we go along.
Thank you for visiting my gallery - I hope you enjoy it. My goal is to develop and improve it in the future. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.
