Blue Hills

Missile Assembly Building

One of the remaining structures still standing on the site is a part of the missile assembly building. This, along with another building next to it, is where they received and assembled (shocker!) the missiles to be stored in underground bunkers. No miscellaneous missile parts here, though evidence of a great airsoft battle was found.

I’m also taking critiques on this one. I think I’ll be revisiting it in the digital darkroom.

Guard Shack

Security post at the gate of Nike Missile Site B-55L Blue Hills, active from 1955-1963. This site, along with hundreds of other across the country, once held Ajax missiles in attempt to protect the country from Soviet bombers during the Cold War.

Just down this road we found the missile assembly buildings, and the remnants of the missile bunkers and launch pads. You can bet those photos are coming soon.

Dispose of Properly

Old can found near an abandoned missile base from the Cold War period. I guess chucking it in the woods was proper back then. More fun pictures to come.

More pines

I think I’m developing something here.

No pun intended.


No one was home. I prefer it that way.

Window ledge

From the look-out tower on top of Great Blue Hill.

From Death, Life.

Small little saplings growing out of a decaying tree stump.

Probably something to be said about that, but I’ll leave it to the philosopher.

If there’s a bench in the forest…

And no one is there to sit on it… does it get lonely?

Victory! Well, not really.

Background story: So I was out on Skyline trail again with my buddy Jim. As we approached the top of the hill, we heard some rustling in the trees below us. Watching carefully, I saw the white tail of a dear flash through an opening in some branches. I jumped back down the rockface to try and catch another glimpse of the dear, leaving poor Jim and his gripless, worn-out sneakers behind.

Sadly I did not see said deer again, however on my way back up told Jim to strike a pose. This is the result. Not a deer, but a Jim. Just as good.

The Jim

In his natural habitat, the Jim perches high above the tree line, stalking his prey.
