Featured Photograph of the Week

This week's photo is by veteran X-ray technician and photo enthusiast Gary Zakrzewski, taken of a defunct steam engine at the Col. Ward Pumping Station near Lasalle Park. 

“For some unknown reason, I’m attracted to old, deteriorating things. They are my favorite subjects to photograph. I have an interest to our area’s industrial past and it’s comforting to know that much of it today is being preserved.”

If you have taken a photograph that you think should be featured, please send it in with a description of the shot, and a short bio of yourself to WNYMuslims@WNYMuslims.org
