New York Freedom ...


“We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and Freedom will prevail.”
           ~ George W. Bush
                 ~ born 1946
  ~ 43rd President of the United States of America
                      ~ 2001-2009

Splashes of morning light on a perfect April day shine on One World Trade Center – The Freedom Tower – and the new Oculus sculpture that tops the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in Lower Manhattan, New York City, near the Memorial Pools.

One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex. With 104 floors, it is the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere and the fourth tallest in the world. It opened November 3, 2014.

The Oculus sculpture – bringing to mind the bold, rising wings of freedom – is the creation of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

Lights Across The Delaware ...



“Sometimes I do get to places just as God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.”      
           ~ Ansel Adams
                  ~ 1902-1984
As an October sundown closes a beautiful autumn day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called the Free Bridge, lights up 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 behind The Free Bridge, which 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.

Just Across The Delaware ...


“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”

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.
