“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 everything nice
And you’re daddy’s little girl.”
~ “Daddy’s Little Girl”

Robert Burke & Horace Gerlach

The heart of summer within the heart of summer … a father teaches his little girl to ride a bicycle on a gorgeous July 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.

“…I’ll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searchin’ for you
In the cold Kentucky rain …”

With a cold spring rain falling lightly on a chilly April afternoon, a man soaks in the quiet beauty as he walks in Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this artistic interpretation.

“The bluebell is the sweetest flower
That waves in summer air
Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirits care.”
~ “The Bluebell”
~ Emily Bronte
~ published 1846
This little girl walks among the beguiling bluebells blooming in early April near the banks of the Swabia Creek at Lock Ridge Park and Furnace Museum, Alburtis, Pennsylvania in this candid capture.
The blooming of the multitude of Lock Ridge bluebells – also called grape hyacinth – is a clarion call of spring in the Lehigh Valley, drawing many people to photograph and glimpse their beauty in the span of the few weeks they bloom.
Lock Ridge Park is a park built around an historic iron ore blast furnace just outside Alburtis, Pennsylvania in the Lehigh Valley. The park preserves portions of the former Lock Ridge Iron Works, which dates back to 1868. The 59-acre park was opened in August 1976.
