Hello to my Followers.  I want to thank all of you for liking my Posts.  I appreciate that.

Here I learning something different using Lightroom CC.  Turning Day Into Night.  This Image was taken yesterday in the afternoon in bright sun.  Following instructions from Lightroom Magazine, it showed me how to do this.  After about 4 tries, I finally got the hang of it.  I think that this is a great effect.

To you all this is just another nice home, but to me it has much History.  This Home was owned by Carl & Dorothy Spacth who owned and operated Burkey & Spacth Funeral Home in Hamburg, PA.  It has been here in Hamburg since the 1950’s.  Carl & Dorothy built this home, so it was not far away from his Funeral business.  They lived here until they both passed on in the 80’s sometime.  The Home has a horse stable in the back to house one of the horse’s Carl had for a few years.  He loved horse’s.  I have been inside this home when I was a young boy and still remember it well.  Who owns it now, I have no idea.

Carl sold out his half of the Funeral business years ago and it is now Burkey & Driscoll Funeral Home.  Since I’ve known Steve, he is the one who took care of my Mothers Funeral back in December of 2004.  Mom also knew Steve well.  That’s why he did the Funeral arrangement for me.  Steve Burkey is the one half owner and I have known him since my day’s as a young boy in Hamburg.  Steve’s Father owned the Burkey Knitting Mills in Hamburg that operated for many years until closing.  The Knitting Mill building still stands today, but it is used for storage by some company that I don’t know.
