Johnstown, PA

Johnstown is the name of the game this week. Due to my wife being in the Conemaugh Memorial Hospital for surgery, I had time to run around town and shoot a few pictures of the flood city during the week, but not your typical tourist photographs. The first four are done in black and white and four of the pictures I shot during the 5 to 7 a.m. news programs at WJAC Channel 6 where I worked as a news videographer back in the early 90s.

This is the lifting apparatus of the elevator that is in the atrium area of Conemaugh Memorial Hospital complex.

This photo and the one below show the glass ceiling of the atrium.

It's a quarter after 6 in the morning and this is a wide shot inside the WJAC studios.

Inside the control room, although only one is shown here, it is a two person operation. It is 6:30 in the morning.

A few minutes before 7 and the two hour show is almost over. Time for one final three shot. Shown here are Bill Brown and Katie Colett, news anchors, and Tony Martin, Weather Genius.

Looking out from the ninth floor of the hospital is this view of the Hornerstown/Dale section of Johnstown.

Some gotta swim, some gotta skate on thin ice. This is Ben's Creek as it flows through Johnstown.
