Snowed In Nostalgia ...



“I love the nostalgic myself. I hope we never lose some of the things of the past.”
                                ~ Walt Disney
                                     ~ 1901-1966
Nostalgia is nestled in the snow in my sepia capture of the Springhouse at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Spring is just around the corner but there is still snow on the ground from a mid-March blizzard on this late winter day.

The 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.

Snow Day ...



“Silently, like thoughts that come and go,
The snowflakes fall, each one a gem.”

It’s a quintessential snow day as snowflakes tumble around the Springhouse at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

I shot this scene brimming with winter’s quiet beauty during a light January snowfall.

The Winter's Day ...

The day all winters dream to be paints itself around the Springhouse at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Icicles fringe the roof of the log cabin surrounded by a fresh March snowfall, blazing blue skies and bright sunshine.

It's one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph.

Softly Comes The Winter ...

" The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
                                   ~ Robert Frost

The springhouse in Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania 
isn't exactly in the woods but looks like it could be on this
December afternoon.

in Allentown. The park is his namesake.
