beguiled by summer video ...



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! …

The Four Musketeers ...


“My heart is like a singing bird.”
                     ~ Christina Rossetti
                                ~ 1830-1894
Four precious young barn swallows peek over their nest in a barn at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania on an August afternoon.

The barn swallow is a bird of open country that normally uses man-made structures to breed. It builds a cup nest from mud pellets in barns or similar structures.
