A Little Night Music ...



“Isn’t it rich? Are we a pair ... ?”
         ~ “Send In The Clowns”
    ~ written by Stephen Sondheim for
   the 1973 musical “A Little Night Music”

A beautiful mute swan glances at a white feather floating by in the pond on a winter’s evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Background texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.

Hope Is The Thing ...



“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without words –
And never stops at all."
               ~ “Hope Is The Thing With Feathers”
                            ~ Emily Dickinson
                                   ~ 1830-1886

A large white feather that has landed on a tree trunk billows in the breeze on a rare warm February day at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this high contrast monochrome shot, a reminder that hope is always in the wind and appears where you may least expect it.
