Don't Fence Me In ...


“Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evenin’ breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don’t fence me in …”
   ~ “Don’t Fence Me In”
     ~ popular American song written in 1934, with music by Cole Porter and lyrics by Robert Fletcher and Cole Porter. Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time. The song was recorded by artists including Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Bing Crosby, Kate Smith and Ella Fitzgerald.

beguiled by summer video ...



Who isn’t beguiled by summer, my most favorite of seasons, with its bright and hopeful mornings that segue into brilliant afternoons that wrap up with the softest of evenings, perfumed by honeysuckle and tinged with the chorus of crickets to tuck you in? There’s a summer place in all of our hearts!

“Theme from a Summer Place” by Percy Faith and His Orchestra sets the mood for this celebration of summer showcased in my original photos. The song was the number one hit for nine weeks on the Billboard Hot Chart in 1960.

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

Bright-Eyed And Bushy-Tailed ...


“All good things are wild and free.”
           ~ Henry David Thoreau
              ~ 1817-1862
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, this sweet white-tailed deer fawn is quite alert as she grazes on a gorgeous July evening in the park with her mama doe closeby.
