Cycle Of The Road ...



"Nothing behind me,
everything ahead of me,
As is ever so on the road."
                    ~ Jack Kerouac
                                ~ 1922-1969
                          ~ "On The Road"
                                   ~ 1957

With a Pennsylvania sundown behind him
and a Jersey road ahead, this motorcyclist
crosses the Riverton-Belvidere Toll Supported
Bridge, which spans the Delaware River.

I shot this on an unusually warm February
evening, the spring like air breathing hope into all of life's possibilities.

The bridge, which opened in 1904, links
Belvidere, New Jersey and Riverton,
Pennsylvania.

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

Doe In The Spring Snow ...




"Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart ...
Live free and beauty surrounds you ...
Stay free, where no walls divide you ...
Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
'Cause you're born free."
                               ~ "Born Free"
                                  ~title song of the 1966 film
                              ~Music by John Barry, Lyrics by Don Black  

Beautiful and free white-tailed deer doe 
steps spritely through the spring snow in the park
as the grass peeks through what remains of winter
during a March sunset.

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.

Whistlin' Dixie ...



"... In Dixie's Land, where I was born in,
early on one frosty mornin'...
I wish I was in Dixie ...
Away, away, away down South in Dixie!"
                              ~ "Dixie" ("Dixie's Land")

Striking up a banjo and fiddle on a sun 
streaked summer's day, this couple fills the air with the sweet sounds of Dixieland.

I loved hearing these wonderful tunes echo 
through Lehigh Parkway, Allentown,
Pennsylvania as I snapped this
candid scene. 

Perhaps they are wistfully thinking of home as
their music makes the summer even sweeter.
