Photograph of the Week

Up River in Early Spring
(Watercolor Filter)

Things in Line

     I enjoy photographing the Allegheny River every season at the James Sharp Landing at 13th and Main Streets in Sharpsburg, PA.  Even though it has been a late spring here, I always find a trip there uplifting.  People were there over the last few weekends fishing, feeding the ducks and geese and walking the paths.  Soon kayakers, boaters and day camp attendees will be flocking there!

Earth Day and Mother Earth


Cliff Dweller

Tube Top

   I remember the first Earth Day.  I was in high school and the bus I was on passed many of my enlightened teachers walking to school on the side of the road.  Mind you, there are no sidewalks in Fox Chapel, so I looked right down on the top of their very "close to the road" heads.  I suspect that I thought more highly of those I saw walking.
   Since then, I have volunteered to pick up litter in local areas and have generally tried to be kind to our Mother Earth.  Most often, Mother Earth has shown herself to me through trees.

Photographs of the Week

Inspired by Nanci Goldberg, I visited Trillium Trail last weekend.  As Sprinter continues in the Pittsburgh area, it was nice to be out in one of the nature areas I love best.

Photographs of the Week

Back in April, 2007, following our success with our photography endeavor to capture the "Survivors: Trees That Have Survived Against All Odds," Sally Foster and I began a series entitled, "Waterfalls, Run-off and Ripples."  Unfortunately, we didn't get any further than about 150 photographs before spring, gardening and life took over.  The above six photographs are from that series.  You never know - we might be at it again or come up with a new series later in 2018!
