  1. One More Time: Pittsburgh

    19 Jul 2022
    Looking toward the Duquesne Incline at dawn I used to love extended road trips. About 15 years ago we traveled from Pennsylvania, to New York, Boston, the Berkshires, Maine and Montreal, with various stops along the way. We had no agenda, no schedule, we had a wonderful time. So, recalling…

    93 years old in this photo Rena Cohen Dweck passed away this week, 2 days shy of her 105th birthday. A life well-lived, one of generosity and spirit. 

  3. Bedford Pennsylvania

    Main Street For full screen display, click on the individual photograph It’s obvious, I love travel. The process of getting there, not so much. Driving usual means tedious hours on interstates negotiating construction or accident slowdowns. Amtrak is unreliable for keeping schedules. Recently my son’s Acela train from New York…

  4. Change of Venue

    28 Mar 2022
    It’s been about seven years since I tired of Winter in Washington, D.C. The daylight is shorter, light is harsher, trees shed their canopy, and, as an architectural shooter, assignments soften. After all, what client wants to photograph a class-A building with no life around it?  For the first couple…

  5. Iceland Revisited, Part Two

    18 Feb 2022
    As promised, the second chapter of Iceland images. These are random images of scenes that caught my eye for the usual reasons. Color play, textures, shapes and just fun.  Click on the individual thumbnail for full size display. Lastly, grafitti. I don’t know if this is a national pastime or…

  6. Iceland Revisited Part One

    15 Feb 2022
    Hallgrimskirkja Once a year I go through my archives of photographs, an interesting exercise, an opportunity to clear out images I would never use and to revisit a particular collection, a chance to find something new, photographs that I enjoy. Looking at the series from Iceland, images shot in 2012…

  7. Covid be damned! Almost Full Speed Ahead.

    Sunrise on Tampa Bay For full screen display, click on the individual photographs I’m not being capricious, but having been given the jab three times, I, like most of America, have had it with Covid-19. That is not to say I do not take precautions, but I don’t feel I…

  8. The Ponce, St. Augustine

    15 Jan 2022
    The Ponce, the former Ponce de Leon Hotel, is now the Flagler College in St. Augustine. The Spanish Renaissance design structure was built in 1888 as a luxury property by Standard Oil co-founder Henry M. Flagler, who left his imprint around South Florida. It was one of the first buildings…

  9. LIGHTS OUT? ST. AUGUSTINE SAYS, NOT YET

    12 Jan 2022
    Ha! You thought I was finished with the Christmas display photos last month, didn’t you? You thought two postings was enough? Well, your intrepid blogger heard about a major holiday light display in St. Augustine, Florida and drove the four hours to photograph it … just for you. Yeah, well,…

  10. MORE FROM THE NORTON

    05 Jan 2022
    One of the reasons I went to the Norton Museum of Art, other than to photograph the BMW, was to see the painting ” Water Lily Pond (Clouds),” one of over two-hundred and fifty canvases created by Claude Monet depicting painted gardens and natural subjects. It is beautiful beyond description,…
