Hope Is The Thing With Feathers ...

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without words –
And never stops at all.”
    ~ “Hope Is The Thing With Feathers”
       ~ Emily Dickinson
         ~ 1830-1886
Spring – and the hope it brings – was just around the corner when I captured this white feather that landed softly among the brown winter branches on a mid-March afternoon at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, a reminder that hope is always in the wind and appears where you least expect it.

The Gentle Autumn ...

“Change is a measure of time and, in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change.”
     ~ Edwin Way Teale
         ~ 1899-1980
          ~ American naturalist,
                   photographer & writer
        ~Teale’s works serve as primary source material documenting environmental conditions across North America from 1930 – 1980. He is perhaps best known for his series “The American Seasons,” four books documenting over 75,000 miles (121,000 km) of automobile travel across North America following the changing seasons.

The changing color of autumn leaves gently cascade over the Little Lehigh Creek on an early November day at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Poetry In Motion ...

“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”
                         ~ Kahlil Gibran
                           ~ 1883-1931

The light of a mid-November sunset dances like poetry in motion on a crest of the Little Lehigh Creek on a beautiful autumn day in this long exposure shot I captured at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
