Daddy's Little Girl ...


“And you’re daddy’s little girl
You’re the end of the rainbow
My pot of gold
You’re daddy’s little girl to have and hold
A precious gem is what you are
You’re mommy’s bright and shining star
You’re the spirit of Christmas
My star on the tree
You’re the Easter Bunny to mommy and me
You’re sugar
You’re spice
You’re everything nice
And you’re daddy’s little girl.”
            ~ “Daddy’s Little Girl”
         ~ lyrics & music written by
          Robert Burke & Horace Gerlach
                               ~ 1906
         ~ recorded by the wonderful Al Martino
                              ~ 1967
To create this image I photographed the cover of Al Martino’s 1967 album “Daddy’s Little Girl” and blended it with “The Heart of Summer,” a photo I took a half century later in July 2017 of the heart of summer within the heart of summer … a father teaching his little girl to ride a bicycle on a gorgeous afternoon on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania, such a sweet sight I was lucky to capture and showcase in sepia to enhance the nostalgic feel.

And that Al Martino album cover? I have it and the record itself, it’s something my parents played many times when I was growing up as I listened from my playpen!

The Heart Of Summer ...



“And you’re daddy’s little girl
You’re the end of the rainbow
My pot of gold
You’re daddy’s little girl to have and hold
A precious gem is what you are
You’re mommy’s bright and shining star
You’re the spirit of Christmas
My star on the tree
You’re the Easter Bunny to mommy and me
You’re sugar
You’re spice
You’re everything nice
And you’re daddy’s little girl.”

The heart of summer within the heart of summer … a father teaches his little girl to ride a bicycle on a gorgeous July afternoon on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania, such a sweet sight I was lucky to capture and showcase in sepia to enhance the nostalgic feel.

Tender In The Grass ...



“There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.”
                            ~ George Sand
                         ~ pseudonym of 
                Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin,
                   French novelist & memoirist
                             ~ 1804-1876

It doesn’t get sweeter than this, seeing a beautiful white-tailed deer fawn tenderly nuzzling its mama doe on a gorgeous July evening in the park – a honey of a summer sight!
