Who isn’t beguiled by summer, my most favorite of seasons, with its bright and hopeful mornings that segue into brilliant afternoons that wrap up with the softest of evenings, perfumed by honeysuckle and tinged with the chorus of crickets to tuck you in? There’s a summer place in all of our hearts!
“Theme from a Summer Place” by Percy Faith and His Orchestra sets the mood for this celebration of summer showcased in my original photos. The song was the number one hit for nine weeks on the Billboard Hot Chart in 1960.
My greatest joy as a photographer is harmonizing my favorite original photos to music to create a lasting snapshot of the season. Enjoy! …

"There's a summer place ..."
~ "Theme From A Summer Place"
You can almost hear the strains of "Theme From A Summer Place"
on a perfect August evening at Manassas Guth Covered Bridge,
South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. The historic wooden bridge that crosses the Jordan Creek was constructed in 1858 and rebuilt in 1882. It is a
108-foot long Burr Truss bridge with vertical siding. It was placed on the
National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
