Tinker Belle

A fish I used to have... it's actually a catfish.

sun, trees, and snow

In the uncompressed version of this picture, you can actually see the sparkles of the ice crystals in the snow and amazing detail for a little point & shoot digital camera (Canon).  This picture has been cropped and hugely compressed so I could upload it to the blog.


A lone chimney in a field I pass by often... I always wonder what happened to the house it used to be attached to.

rose of sharon

Right outside my dining room window.  :)

I love the question mark tail.  :)

The leaves on the trees are just starting to come back.  :)

A very cooperative snail we found in the yard one day.

I still cannot get over the quality shots I got out of that automatic Canon digital camera.  The detail in this one is fantastic in the original version of the photo, and the colors / effect was exactly what I was going after.  This was done in natural lighting right in the backyard.


Just a strange little picture of twigs that appealed to me.

Promised Land

Promised Land State Park, PA
early morning during a camping trip

Rt 206 farm

A farm on Rt 206 that is no longer there.  I really liked the contrast of the red against a bleak background on a rainy overcast day.

(Taken with a cheap point & shoot 35 mm fully automatic)


I thought the Monarch picture took a lot of patience... this one required double.  ;)

(this is from a Canon EOS 35mm manual settings with zoom lens)


A lot of patience was involved in getting this shot.

(Taken with my old Canon AE1 35mm on manual and then scanned into the computer)

Moon Over a Farm

Allaire State Park

Allaire in Autumn, 2000
I can't believe I took this almost 10 years ago already.  I remember so many details of that day and it really doesn't seem that long ago...

One of the first shots from my new (at that time) Canon AE1 35mm.  :)

I still got the camera, by the way, and it still works fantastic.

If you disagree with me, you're wrong

A shout out to a fellow blogger with a strong voice!!

Autumn in the Country

Cherry Blossoms in Bloom

One of my most favorite pics I've ever taken.  This is actually Newark, NJ.
