Deer Of The Green Vale ...


“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”

My favorite white-tailed deer doe and her fawn pose for a sweet September portrait at home in the park as sunset knocks on the door of a beautiful, waning summer evening.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.

Lush Summer ...




“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all ...”

                        ~ Jack Kerouac
                                 ~ 1922-1969

All seasons have their own special beauty, yet I have to say I’ve always been a summer person.
And what more could anyone who loves summer ask for than a quintessential summer evening – verdant, lush and warm – just before sunset on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania.

It’s the perfect, sun-dappled place for dreaming and remembrance … a place that seems to paintbrush the words of Jack Kerouac, “I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all …”

Window To Friendship ...




“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you.
You have to go to them sometimes.”
                            ~ A.A. Milne
                                 ~ 1882-1956
                      ~from “Winnie-the-Pooh”
                       ~ published October 14, 1926
Adorable cottontail rabbit and chipmunk eye each other as they meet for what may well be the first time as they scurry for food on a summer evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

“Winnie-the-Pooh” has always been a favorite of mine since childhood, and the words of A.A. Milne sprang to my mind at this sweet peek into wildlife.
