    03 Jan 2022
    Believe it or not, it is actually 2022. I wanted to start off the new year in colorful fashion, so  my first outing was a visit to the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach Florida. I love the feel and flow of this museum, a contemporary structure with…

    The Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America Washington National Cathedral We’ve all been through a long rough patch lately - for almost two years. To be candid, not a lot of good news is around and it has become clear that some form of Covid will be with…

    13 Dec 2021
    There is a restaurant about fifteen minutes from me that has decorated their tree limbs with thousands of tiny LED lights. They take on an other world vibe. Although they are not willows, they reminded me of the Tree of Souls in the movie Avatar.  Click on the image for

  4. Southern Lights

    Christmas in South Florida is markedly different than back home, the near north. The air has no chill in it and there is little chance for snow unless Mother Nature does an about face on current climate change, so, whadda we got to pump up Christmas spirit?  We got lights,…

    Post-Halloween It’s about time for my seasonal move to Florida and this is the time of the year when the weather is spectacular in Washington D.C. The skies are blue, the angle of the sun near perfect, the air crisp, with no humidity. It was time for a last walk,…

  8. Path to Happiness

    25 Oct 2021
    Have you met anyone who didn’t like a merry-go-round? I haven’t.  A truly unique example is the Carousel of Happiness in Nederland Colorado. Its roots are in a carousel built by Danish woodcarver Charles I.D. Looff, who built the first carousel for Coney Island. Looff went on to construct carousels…

  9. In Rare Air

    13 Oct 2021
    Wades Point Inn In seems like a thousand years ago when I had my first aerial assignment, long before drones came along. I photographed stunt pilot Sean Tucker doing barrel rolls over treetops in Pennsylvania. I had flown in small planes before, but never with the hatch removed. I was…
