Upside Down in Mexico

One evening in Cancún we had finished dinner at Las Isla Shopping District and while I was waiting for my wife I took some pictures of reflections in the canal. Normally when taking reflections you take the reflection with the object being reflected included in the shot. That night I only took the reflection.

When I saw the image during editing I rejected it as stupid. Now a few years later I looked at it again and decide to rotate it 180 degrees and I like it! Looks like a painting

Before Photoshop #4—Peggy’s Cove NS 1980

One of the last composites I ever made in the darkroom. This is actually a triple burn. I used part of an image I took in Peggy’s Cove. There were so many birds around yet I didn’t capture any in the frames I shot. The sea gull was from an image captured in Lake worth Florida and the other birds were from a picture taken in the Bay of Fundy on Rugby Neck NS.

The image was created in my darkroom in State College PA.

Regent Square Daylily #1–Yellow Ledbetter

We planted a lot of day lilies under the misconception that deer would not eat them. They destroyed the ones in our front garden but relentless application of repellent has saved the beauties in our back garden. The dark purple ones will be next to bloom. I think I will call this one Yellow Ledbetter. Thank you Pearl Jam.

Minute Man National Park

We had been to the Lexington and Concord before but never to Minute Man National Park until this week. It is a beautiful park and you can walk through the woods adjacent to the battlefield where the Minute Man jogged through the woods to reengage the British Troops. This tactic won the battle because the British were convinced there were many more soliders than there actually were.

Window with A View

Most of the time when you travel and stay in hotels near the highway you get your choice of view. You can view the front parking lot or rear parking lot. As a Marriott Gold Elite member I almost always get upgraded. This time it was with it.

This is the view from the Aloft in Lexington Massachusetts. We saw a variety of animals and birds during pour stay and still had the convenience of being close to the highway.

Today’s Walk Through Regent Square

We have a young active dog and each day Lady Trey requires about four miles of walks to keep her calm and well balanced. We live in Regent Square which is one of Pittsburgh’s best neighborhoods for walking. It borders Frick Park so you can walk through neighborhood streets or paths through the woods.

On today’s walk we came across a beautiful variety of daylily that I have never seen before. The colors are quite striking and I thought worthy of sharing.
