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.”
                      ~ “Daddy’s Little Girl”
                 ~ lyrics & music written by
                     Robert Burke & Horace Gerlach
                                     ~ 1906
          ~ recorded by the wonderful Al Martino
                                              ~ 1967

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.

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!

Waiting For You ...

Lovin' Spoonful ...

"If you want to go quickly,
go alone,
If you want to go far,
go together."
                         ~African Proverb

Beautiful white-tailed deer doe receives a spoonful of love
in a sweet nudge from her white spotted fawn during a precious moment
captured on a summer evening in the park.

I've been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns for
more than three years, and it's a true joy to me 
personally and as a photographer.

In The Fire Of Spring ...

"May this tenderness cling
When the fire of spring
Is a memory
May you still be my own
When a hundred years have flown ...
Love me tonight."

A beautiful blossom and breaking bud are in tandem in the fire of spring as the April sun sets on my favorite magnolia tree at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
