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.”

                                      ~ 1850-1896
           ~American illustrator, author & naturalist

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.

A Winter's Dusk ...


"In every winter's heart
there is a quivering spring,
And behind the veil of each
night there is a smiling dawn."
                             ~ Kahlil Gibran
                                         ~ 1883-1931 

A winter's dusk paints itself around the
Springhouse at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania, one of my very
favorite places to be and to photograph.

I captured this high contrast monochrome shot 
a few days after the historic January 
Blizzard of 2016. In a winter shorn of snow until
the blizzard, the storm plonked 31 inches of snow
on Allentown in a 24 hour period.
