Hum Hum Humming along…

For anyone who knows me, or who doesn’t know me but have traipsed thru a few of my blog postings, you know I am a bird lover. In my mind, how can one not feel completely amazed by (and in love with) birds? Sure, sure – just like anything in life, we have different hobbies,…

Of Butterflies and Birds (and flowers, too)

Nature and its flora and fauna are astoundingly amazing, and I have mad respect for its existence and preservation. And while I can oogle at Nat Geo, or a myriad of other online resources to see amazing nature photography, I love being behind the lens in capturing a growing collection of both the known and…

Thursday Doors September 21: Summer Wanes…

And once again, taking it on foot as opposed to tooling around in my car makes it alllllll a new adventure. I open with, of all things, a gelateria! Yes, Manja Mexi…

The sprawling ~100 acre meadow garden is only a fraction of the entire gardens, but the most dynamic from having a very unique ecological design and most excellent connection with nature. This…

Thursday Doors August 24: Roma Sampler

As it goes with the 2300+ photos I shot whilst in Italy, I sort thru, and sort thru again, and again…. well, you get my point. I have enough to post on my blog for months perhaps, but wouldn’t want to overdo it on Italy (is there ever such a thing, I wonder??) 🙂 For…

Thursday Doors August 10: The Local Scene

My local digs are suburban Philadelphia – specifically, and on this day of wandering around, West Chester. It’s an historic borough about 30 miles outside of Philadelphia, the actual town incorporated in the late 1700’s. Though, much of its earlier foundational history of the 1600’s and earlier is quite interesting as well. While not all…
