Dog Days of Summer

It’s 93* outside, which means that I start sweating as soon as I look out the window. The air outside is sticky and saturated 24-hours a day; even the nights don’t cool down and the breeze, if you can find it, is just hot, sticky air in motion. These are the dog days of summer. […]


Not quite right

This image – and the others in this post – are almost two months old.  I shot them while out in the kayak, on a trip to Promised Land State Park.  Amid my usual search for birds, I made a point to shoot some landscapes with the intention of adding them to my “Black & […]


Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!  We’re kicking it off a few hours early here in the Electric City.  Scranton is the only place I’ve ever been where people shoot off fireworks all year round.  Literally right out of their yards, well within the city limits, a few random ones each week, sometimes a small batch.  Nobody seems […]


Simple Clicks – on the river

Monday evening, 6 May, became my first river outing in the new kayak.  I put in at Falls, PA, and paddled three miles up the Susquehanna River to a point where a large island divided the river.  The division caused the current to intensify to the point where I just could’t paddle through it; besides […]


Spring star trails

  I wrapped up my perfect spring Saturday with an evening under the stars with friends.  It’s been a while since I’ve shot any astrophotography, in part because I was struggling to keep it interesting.  As a genera, it’s a bit of a tricky one; adding interest to any astro scene depends a lot on […]


Easton, PA

Spend 24 hours in the town of Easton a couple of weeks back, on a March Saturday that turned out to be uncharacteristically warm and lovely.  It as planned as a get-away trip that, unfortunately, didn’t really turn out the way I’d planned and I ended up cutting it short and coming back a day […]


A new adventure

*Note: this post went live on Saturday, so some of you may have seen it.  It wasn’t supposed to, as it was still lacking photos and some final edits.  Not sure what happened there, but oh well – here it is again, in its final form. It’s time for a new adventure, so starting this […]


Jim Thorpe: Winterfest

Spent a few hours in Jim Thorpe last weekend – we brought my mom down while she was visiting, knowing that she’d love the small town and it’s amazing architecture. It’s an unusual place, small twisting streets lined with a mix of old brick and row houses, all tucked into a strange little valley amid […]


Simple Clicks: bookstore cat

I think that all bookstores should be smallish and jumbled. It’s okay if the books are a little out of order, or if one section spills into another. Or onto the floor, or maybe a chair wedged nearby. And all such bookstores should have a cat. At least one. The photo above is one of […]


Winter, softly

These got a little lost in the shuffled for a couple of weeks, but are from an outing I made early in January. It was one of those outings that was as much about getting out in the woods and moving around as anything. I was messing with some MF glass and experimenting a little […]
