The Art Of The Swan ...


“Until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can fly.”
              ~ Napolean Bonaparte
                     ~ 1769-1821 
A beautiful mute swan artfully flashes its wingspan on Lake Muhlenberg in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured on a late August evening at Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Yee Haw ! ...



“That it will never come again is what makes life sweet. Dwell in possibility. Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”
                    ~ Emily Dickinson
                          ~ 1830-1886
A female common merganser duck shows off her wingspan and seems to say “Yee Haw!” as she relishes the beauty of an early September afternoon at Budd M. Jones Municipal Park, Belvidere, New Jersey.

A Little Night Music ...



“Isn’t it rich? Are we a pair ... ?”
         ~ “Send In The Clowns”
    ~ written by Stephen Sondheim for
   the 1973 musical “A Little Night Music”

A beautiful mute swan glances at a white feather floating by in the pond on a winter’s evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Background texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.
