Condemned, Trash the Dress

We had a Trash the Dress Model Shoot today at Old Poway Park, enduring rain, shine, Jessie kept helping to create our vision, what a trooper!

Speaking of troopers, when retired Army Colonel John S. Porter settled in Poway in 1948, he had a dream: revitalize Old Poway and make it a place for folks to come and enjoy the old west. Through the years, Colonel Porter acquired and built the beginnings of a historic village. Included in his dream was the purchase of a 1907 Baldwin No. 3 Steam Engine and a half-mile track.

Historic buildings from around Poway were brought to the site and restored. Included are Poway’s first assembly hall, the International Order of Good Templars Hall and the Nelson House.

More of this series is on the way!

  2. Hi Erik, what a beautiful model. I love the shot with a subtle insinuation. You can start an interesting story in your mind.
    Poway Park is always a great place for photography. Thank you for adding the historical tidbits in all your posts.
