A Lily Found

I haven’t been able to shoot much this summer being hobbled by a bad back. I have been spending my time instead editing and reimagining old images. I shot this lily years ago at our house in the Pocono Mountains. I remember thinking when I took it that I was treating this like a portrait with a key light. The shadows on the leaves of the stamen create a certain drama to the image.

Relic fromThe Past

I took this a long time ago. It was a 35mm Ektachome image which I scanned in 2010. I wish it was a little sharper but I like the color and composition.

The Monster of Kennywood 1977

I haven’t been to Kennywood since the late 1970’s. I took some of my students from Ivy School of Professional Art on a field trip there and we all had a great time taking photos. I have always been fond of this picture, the ride is long gone ut it reminds me of simpler times.

Bird in Hand

Every day at 11:30 The National Aviary has an Eagle Talk. This bird was a rescued bald eagle that fell out of its nest as a baby and has been nursed to a healthy adult at the aviary. There is another docent with a bucket of food to keep the eagle from not flying or attacking the handler. They are birds of prey after all.

The National Aviary is the largest bird zoo in America and a true Pittsburgh treasure. If you plan your visit properly you can see the Eagle Talk and Penguin Feeding.

Regent Square Day Lily #3… Pictures of Lily

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 Pictures of Lily. Thank you The Who.
