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.

Daddy's Little Girl ...


“And you’re daddy’s little girl
You’re the end of the rainbow
My pot of gold
You’re daddy’s little girl to have and hold
A precious gem is what you are
You’re mommy’s bright and shining star
You’re the spirit of Christmas
My star on the tree
You’re the Easter Bunny to mommy and me
You’re sugar
You’re spice
You’re everything nice
And you’re daddy’s little girl.”
            ~ “Daddy’s Little Girl”
         ~ lyrics & music written by
          Robert Burke & Horace Gerlach
                               ~ 1906
         ~ recorded by the wonderful Al Martino
                              ~ 1967
To create this image I photographed the cover of Al Martino’s 1967 album “Daddy’s Little Girl” and blended it with “The Heart of Summer,” a photo I took a half century later in July 2017 of the heart of summer within the heart of summer … a father teaching his little girl to ride a bicycle on a gorgeous afternoon on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania, such a sweet sight I was lucky to capture and showcase in sepia to enhance the nostalgic feel.

And that Al Martino album cover? I have it and the record itself, it’s something my parents played many times when I was growing up as I listened from my playpen!
