Doe Of A Midsummer Night ...



“If we can teach people about wildlife, they will be touched. Share my wildlife with me. Because humans want to save what they love.”
                         ~ Steve Irwin

 My favorite white-tailed deer doe pauses from grazing as she watches me walk up the hill to give her an apple – or two! – on a beautiful July evening in the park.

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.

Summer Evening At Bogert's Bridge ...



“Simplicity is the glory of expression.”
                          ~ Walt Whitman
                                     ~ 1819-1892

One of the sweet, simple joys of summer is savoring a beautiful July evening at the historic Bogert’s Covered Bridge in Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge spans 145 feet over the Little Lehigh Creek.

Built in 1841, its history traces back to the mid-1700s when the Bogert family moved into a log cabin next to the future site of the bridge. It is the oldest covered bridge in Lehigh County and among the oldest in the country. It is open only to pedestrian and bicycle traffic, as well as the occasional rider on horseback.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge is a wooden Burr Truss bridge with vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
