The obsession continues

I don’t know what it is about these structures that I find so interesting . . .  their size, that they can stand the test of time, or the hint of an era gone by.  starbarn_2

 

This past weekend, however, I actually had an opportunity to explore some local barns up close and even rummage around on the inside for a change.

In any direction

Happy summer all!

It’s here in full swing… and green.  When summer comes to my neighborhood, the world seems to get smaller.  Those big trees I showed you covered in ice from the winter are now a canopy of green surrounding the house in which I only get a glimpse of a sunrise or sunset. It can get a little claustrophobic… sounds a little weird right.

My dream home: A little Craftsman cottage with a big front porch (okay let’s put one on the back while we’re at it), with a view that goes on for miles…

BigRed

Okay, so it’s not “little” and definitely not a “Craftsman” but that porch!  On a recent photo outing traipsing through the country side of Lancaster, PA,  I spotted this red something sitting on a hill in the distance and of course had to find it for a closer look, but then I lost sight of it as the road dipped and turned.  The road took us back to the land of traffic lights and shopping centers (which now a days are never out of sight for long), stopped at a light, having pretty much give up on it . . . and there it was!  Part of it was hiding behind a white pole barn and across the street from all things… a shopping center 😦

This is what I love about the photography I do.  I love recreating that very first feeling… what I first imagined this big red house must look like, must have looked like back in it’s prime.  … as if I am sitting on that front porch on a warm summer day.

Enjoy your summer adventures,

2013 Winter Exhibit

It might just be the Most Wonderful Time of the Year… but it is also one of the busiest.  Coming off a very successful Thanksgiving dinner for 14 (if I do say so myself, i.e. I didn’t burn anything), it’s now time for me to turn my attentions to the Doylestown Photography Club’s Winter Exhibit.

The club is hosting an exhibit of its very own, very talented group of photographers from Bucks and, yes,  Montgomery Counties, both framed and digital images will be on display for your enjoyment (and for sale).  So, if you’re looking for a winter outing, come visit us in historic Doylestown, in the heart of Bucks County!

You are cordially invited 🙂941832_557001061037896_1016202796_n

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
