West Side and Black Rock Neighborhood Housing Services

I was contacted in mid-summer by a volunteer of the West Side and Black Rock Neighborhood Housing Services group to see if I'd be available to shoot some local buildings and landmarks for their 30th Anniversary Banquet to be used as centerpieces. Since I didn't anticipate having much going on until the deadline I jumped at the opportunity since I love Buffalo and Buffalo's history! However, due to unexpected events, I wound up with only a week and a half to shoot, edit and deliver the photos. Luckily, they were very happy with the results and I'm only now getting caught up to able to blog about the experience.

This is the Armory in downtown Buffalo. It was shot my second day but this is my favorite of the buildings.

The top of Black Rock Church.

The Black Rock Lighthouse, which you can get lost trying to find- we did!

The Sweetness 7 Cafe near the shopping district of Buffalo's center city.

I shot restored buildings, abandoned buildings, a Habitat for Humanity house while the interior was being completed, historic sites and new businesses that are all being affected for the good by the work that the Neighborhood Housing Services provide. It was a great opportunity and you can learn more about their work by visiting
