Trimmed In Twilight ...


"Sweet memories of ... twilights trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you
Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind ..."

                                        ~ "Memories"
                                                             ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                                                      ~ 1968

Twilight trims the spring sky over Easton, Pennsylvania
as viewed from across the Delaware River in Phillipsburg, New Jersey
next to the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called
The Free Bridge.
The bridge that spans the states was completed in 1896 and
survived massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. 
It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990 and is one of my
very favorite places to photograph.

Bridging Sunset ...


"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we
pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses,
which paint the world their own hue, and each shows
us only what lies in its own focus."
                                  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 
                                                            ~1803-1882

Sunset hues begin to steal across the summer sky
over Easton, Pennsylvania as viewed from across
the Delaware River in Phillipsburg, New Jersey next to the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge.

The bridge that spans the states was completed
in 1896 and survived damage from massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990.

Spanning ...


"Winter makes a bridge between one year and another
and, in this case, one century and the next."
                                                        ~ Andy Goldsworthy

A recent view of the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called
The Free Bridge, looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey. The bridge
spans the Delaware River between Phillipsburg and Easton, Pennsylvania.
The Free Bridge was completed in 1896 and survived the massive flooding
of Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990.
