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! …

Summery ...



“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.”
               ~ Wallace Stevens
                    ~ 1879-1955
     ~ American modernist poet born
               in Reading, Pennsylvania
   ~ Pulitzer Prize Winner for Poetry for his “Collected Poems” in 1955

The warm air melds with the chirping of birds and crickets, the only sounds in the still beauty of a July evening at Schlicher Covered Bridge in summer, my most favorite of seasons.

Schlicher Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge located in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a 108-foot-long, Burr Truss bridge that crosses the Jordan Creek and was constructed in 1882. It has vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It underwent needed renovations a few years ago.

It can be accessed from the Covered Bridge Trail at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
