Painting Memories

"Art arises when the secret vision of the artist and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes."
~ Kahlil Gibran

Filled with beauty, the Kreidersville Covered Bridge in Allen Township, Pennsylvania was built in 1839. The bridge is loved for its great history and tranquil setting by the Hokendauqua Creek. It is the only covered bridge left in Northampton County. It was the perfect place for a summer daydream last weekend.

What's Through The Looking Glass?

I was very surprised today when this locust landed on my windshield just as I reached a stoplight
before getting on the highway and quickly took a photo. It proceeded to walk across my windshield until I was off the on ramp and accelerated, then it flew away!
