Stan Feldman, Philadelphia Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I have been a railfan as long as I can remember, growing up near the (NEC) Pennsylvania Railroad, watching the GG-1s move an endless parade of trains. Being near the Reading Company Frankford Branch, I spent hours in The Summerdale Station with the Stationmaster and Clerk, and riding in the Baldwin Switcher to the end of the Branch at the Frankford Station.
I served 4 years in the United States Coast Guard, including one year in Vietnam.
I have done many types of Photography. My Images have been published in many Newspapers and Magazines, and I have done work for several Legal Firms.
PHOTOGRAPHY IS FUN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
