We’re half way through January already. I keep reading posts from friends saying what a great start to the year it has been for them and I feel jealous, envious, and somehow cheated. This year has started off very slowly for me. Knock out a week when I was laid up with a respiratory virus [...]
Luck! Sometimes I think it is better to be lucky than good. But what is luck? Sometimes luck isn’t luck at all. Sometimes it is the result of having a plan, a vision. It is the result of spicing up that plan with knowledge and experience. It is a result of being flexible and adapting [...]
Of all the places in the park, we probably made more return visits to the Eagle Lake area than any other. With every passing year (we’ve been visiting annually since 1999), I find I am more and more attracted to diversity of the area. We just love it.
This first image came from our first [...]
And I am hoping that at some of you missed me! Barb and I just returned from two weeks in Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine. As you would expect from a fairly lengthy visit, there were great days and some just okay days. The biggest factor that we had to deal with was [...]
Counting down the days until vacation. At last. It’s been 15 months since our last visit to Acadia National Park (ME). We visited in June in both 2008 and 2009 so that I could photograph the Puffins on Machias Seal Island and the Lupines all around Acadia and Mount Desert Island. This year it is [...]

How time flies! It was a little over a week ago that Barb and I spent our 40th anniversary wandering through the gardens at Longwood (Kennett Square, PA). This visit we were particularly drawn to the wonderful water lilies blooming in the pools outside the Conservatory. Interestingly, as we learned from the docent, they put [...]
This past weekend (and thank God we have another coming up) turned out to be an excellent one, photographically speaking. I’ve already shared two images from last Saturday (A Reflection Upon a Reflection and Just for Fun) here on my blog and have a couple more that I will share in this post… and I [...]
Sometimes you see something and really has a long-term impact on you. Such is the case of a photographic print that I saw at an art show on the Village Green in Bar Harbor, Maine about two years ago now. At it’s core, it was a simple image – just several blades of grass reaching [...]
… in front of you and behind you.
This past Saturday morning we stopped along the Delaware River in Upper Black Eddy, PA with the intention of shooting the bridge that crosses the river into New Jersey. The boat access was just a tad downstream of the bridge so I pulled in, headed down the [...]
