Just Across The Delaware ...


“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”
                                ~ Ansel Adams
                                            ~ 1902-1984
As sunset looms on a gorgeous October day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge, can be seen across the Delaware River looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey from Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Delaware River Toll Bridge can be seen at left, and at right the iconic Jimmy’s Doggie Stand.

The Free Bridge that spans the two states was completed in 1896 and survived massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990 and is one of my very favorite places to photograph.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Local Honey ...



“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”
                ~ Victor Hugo
                   ~ 1802-1885

Local honey is for sale on the front porch of one of the colorful houses in Belvidere, New Jersey, a bright and fun touch of Americana on a late summer September day.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Summer Picnic Video ...


The beautiful, sweeping "Love Theme From Picnic" by George Duning from the wonderful 1955 film "Picnic" sets the mood for this celebration of summer showcased in my original photos.

My greatest joy as a photographer is harmonizing my favorite original photos to create a lingering snapshot of the season ... Enjoy!

The Town In The Window ...




“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
                    ~ Henri Matisse
                              ~ 1869-1954
 Beautiful flowers pop with color in the window of Fragrant Designs Florist, Belvidere, New Jersey, greeting the town reflected in the window on a rare warm February afternoon just after Valentine’s Day.
