"Blue Cosmos"...


If you slow down, nature may just surprise you with beauty in the smallest of worlds. This small plant, mostly underwater, looks as if it were it's own underwater nebula. It appears to be surrounded by sticks, which are actually reflections of branches above the water from surrounding trees. Nature surrounds us with beauty, if we just stop and look with open eyes.
I challenge you to look at this photograph from across the room. The different perspectives are very interesting. Hope you enjoy.

"Tranquil Reflections"...


Tranquil is often defined as 'free from disturbance' by waves. This can also be said for the purpose of our Wildlife Management Areas. I'm so glad we have these lands protected.

"Hidden Gems"...


For those who explore, you appreciate the value of finding hidden gems off the beaten path. This is one of those. These wildflowers were blooming far off the trail. Even the insect was shy in this photograph. Hope you enjoy.

"Porsche Contours"...


Porsche design is often underappreciated. As light changes, so does the lines and shapes that appear.

"Music filled the Room"...


A Harrington, Upright Grand piano is about all that remains in his auditorium of the Carden Bottom school. Built in the 1930's, this school has many stories that could be told, and sung.

As I was shooting this panorama, I did hear what seemed like footsteps around me and down the hallway. I wonder if the ghosts were waiting for me to leave so they could play the piano in secret...

About the piano: The E.G. Harrington Piano Company was established in 1871 in New York City and continued to build Harrington pianos until the 1960's.
