April 7, 2017 — This week’s photo challenge is security.
January 25, 2016 — We survived the great blizzard of 2016, which fits in perfectly with this week’s photo challenge: Optimistic.
February 7, 2014 — It’s been a brutally cold, snowy winter across most of the United States, but the weather has provided many opportunities to take beautiful photos of landscapes, and Old City Philadelphia is high on that list.
January 22, 2014 – One of the benefits of my job is the ability to work from home. When the latest snowstorm blanketed Philadelphia yesterday, I sat at my desk by the window overlooking my neighbor’s home feeling warm and cozy, and sipping a mug of peppermint tea.
Working from home also provided an opportunity for a unique lunch break. I added a few warm layers, put on the boots, and I went out to play in the snow with my trusty Canon. No one had shoveled yet, so the snow lay on the sidewalks untouched, the way I like it best.
It’s silent when it snows; you don’t even hear the cars passing by. It’s also tricky; it may look light and fluffy but it is slick, proving it may be best to stay inside and enjoy a cup of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch instead.
January 20, 2014 — I took a winter’s stroll through the woods across the street from my home early Saturday morning. It snowed like crazy for 10 minutes before the sun came out, and then it was gone.
I’ve never been much for poetry unless there’s music behind the words and it becomes a song, but I like the rhythm of a haiku. Here’s my humble attempt to capture that moment with a few photos and a haiku.
As the city slept
Snow fell soft and thick until
The sun erased it
