Downtown Scranton in Bloom – April 2018

I went for a quick stroll through the square to make sure I saw the trees in bloom. They shed these flowers very quickly.

Carriage House, Hill Section, Scranton, PA – April 2018

I found this little gem just a few paces from my new office.

Lackawanna County Courthouse, Scranton, PA – January 2017

I don’t know how this happened, but I’ve never published this photo here on my site. This was one of the first photos I took with my current drone (the DJI Phantom 4 Pro) and has already been used by several Scranton-based companies in their materials.

New office vibes – March 2018

Jujama’s Scranton, PA offices are 👌

Warm February Evening, Downtown Scranton – February 2018

It has been nice to have a short respite from winter these last few days. Walking downtown in the evening, without rushing to my next destination. I’m looking forward to spring weather.

Socialocca presents a Social Media Workshop at the February 2018 NEPA Tech meet up

Ryan K. Hertel, Socialocca

This month’s NEPA Tech meet up was yet another smashing success. If you live in northeastern Pennsylvania and are interested in the intersections of business, technology, the arts, etc. (and you want to see our area thrive in all of these things) please consider attending an upcoming event.

Ryan K. Hertel of Socialocca, a small social media advertising and management agency, gave a presentation on the current social media landscape as well as some tactics his company uses for his clients. His presentation was energetic, informative, and I’m certain everyone that attended found some value in it.

Social media and digital advertising is still on the rise in our area but it also continues to be a hard sell. Many longtime small business owners are not entrenched in social media enough to see its impact on their businesses. They do not invest heavily enough, either in time or money, to see the incredible network effects that can happen if they did. Ryan’s company, as well as Condron Media, are constantly trying to prove the value of these activities with limited budgets in our area.

The pendulum is swinging though. More and more companies are sick of feeling left out, their competition is beginning to invest in social media, and they don’t want to be left behind.

I look forward to seeing where Ryan’s company is in 5 years.

Three photos from Downtown Scranton – February 2018

The weather is just beginning to break here in the northeast. We just had 4″ of snow on Saturday evening and tomorrow should be somewhere in the 60s Fahrenheit melting any memory of it away. This causes me to stir and I begin walking around hitting my shutter button at anything and everything. I can’t wait to get the drone out of the closet, get a kayak in the water, and start enjoying the reasons we live in this area of the world. Spring can’t come soon enough.

AV on Penn, Scranton, PA – January 2018

So many great buildings downtown. Like this one that now houses AV on Penn.

Brisk late-afternoon photowalk, Downtown Scranton, January 2018

I saw the sun hitting the tops of the buildings and quickly ran outside for a brisk photowalk.

Summa Scene, Downtown Scranton – January 2018

Saw this tag walking back in the snow to the office after a client meeting. Thought it ironic.
