The Guitar Man ...


“Who draws the crowd and plays so loud, baby it’s the guitar man
Who’s gonna steal the show you know baby, it’s the guitar man
He can make you love, he can make you cry
He will bring you down and he’ll get you high
Somethin’ keeps him goin’ miles and miles a day
To find another place to play

Night after night, who treats you right, baby, it’s the guitar man
Who’s on the radio, you go and listen to the guitar man
Then he comes to town and you see his face

And you think you might like to take his place
Somethin’ keeps him driftin’ miles and miles away
Searching for the songs to play

Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along
You want to get the meaning out of each and every song
Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own and take 'em home

He can make you love, he can get you high
He will bring you down, then he’ll make you cry
Somethin’ keeps him movin’ but no one seems to know 
What it is that makes him go

Then the light begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice, he’s just got to find another place to play

Fade away
Got to play
Fade away
Got to play”

 The Guitar Man strums the chords and sings his songs in front of the Historic Bethlehem Visitor Center in this infrared street capture I shot on a late November afternoon in downtown historic Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Silver White Winters ...


“…Silver-white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things …”
                   ~ “My Favorite Things”
                       ~from the 1959
       Rodgers & Hammerstein musical 
               “The Sound Of Music”  

The snowy creek shimmers with silvery beauty after a late winter snowfall on an early March evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this infrared image.

This beauty will eventually melt into spring, but for now the silver-white winter lingers to paint a  quiet, majestic beauty.

In The Snowfall ...


“Stillness is the flower of winter,
all hope waits beneath a blanket of white.”
              ~ Unknown
The hopeful promise of spring is just around the corner as a late winter snowfall quietly paints its beauty across my favorite path in this infrared scene I captured on an early March afternoon at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
