A Winter's Dusk ...


"In every winter's heart
there is a quivering spring,
And behind the veil of each
night there is a smiling dawn."
                             ~ Kahlil Gibran
                                         ~ 1883-1931 

A winter's dusk paints itself around the
Springhouse at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania, one of my very
favorite places to be and to photograph.

I captured this high contrast monochrome shot 
a few days after the historic January 
Blizzard of 2016. In a winter shorn of snow until
the blizzard, the storm plonked 31 inches of snow
on Allentown in a 24 hour period.


This log cabin was part of Springhouse, the summer home of General Harry C. Trexler (1854-1933), an American industrialist who built a business empire in Allentown. The park is his namesake.

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 Twilight ...


"Twilight drops her curtain down and pins it with a star."
                                              ~ Lucy Maud Montgomery
                                                                          1874-1942

Twilight begins to steal across the waning summer sky
like a painter of dreams 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, and is one of my very
favorite places to photograph.

Deep Purple Dreams ...


"When the deep purple falls ...
through the mist of a memory
you wander back to me ...
here in my deep purple dreams."

                       ~ "Deep Purple"
                               ~ composed by Peter DeRose, 1933
                                ~ lyrics by Mitchell Parish, 1938

Twilight sweeps across the summer sky
like deep purple dreams at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
