Things I’ll Miss—Moonlit Nights

If you follow this blog you know that for some time we have been trying to sell our house and move back to Pittsburgh. Our tablets are done (DreamMap publishing in October) and it is time to come off the mountain. Of course moving is hard work so I haven’t been taking new pictures and have been thinking of how to keep the blog “alive” during this time of transition.

Moonlit waterfalls are beautiful wether they exist in nature or are created. The moon is from our back yard, the waterfall is part of Bushkill Falls about twenty miles away.

Things I Will Miss–Black Bears

If you follow this blog you know that for some time we have been trying to sell our house and move back to Pittsburgh. Our tablets are done (DreamMap publishing in October) and it is time to come off the mountain. Of course moving is hard work so I haven’t been taking new pictures and have been thinking of how to keep the blog “alive” during this time of transition.

Although our new house is only two blocks from one of the largest parks in Pittsburgh (Frick Park) we won’t have quite the variety of wildlife we have in The Poconos. Oh sure there will be deer, rabbits and maybe even some fox but I don’t think they have black bears in Frick Park. It is always exciting to see bears in the wild and I will miss their occasional visits.

Candidate#4—Mother and Child

I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This one was taken in Cancnún at Sunset near the Blue Dock. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Anhinga

The Anhinga, also known as The Indian Darter is an unusual bird. It is a fishing bird but after it dives it needs to dry its wings before taking off again. It stands like this, turning into the wind to dry it’s wings. This would seem to make the bird vulnerable to predators during the drying process,yet they survive! This one was photographed at the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel island in Florida.

Sunset at the Blue Deck Cancun

Along the side of the Las Islas Shopping Center in Cancun is a strip of bars and cafes that face the setting sun. This sunset was taken from the famous Blue Deck during two for one happy hour and they make great and strong rum drinks.

Just Another Road

Yesterday I posted an image of Canyonlands NP in Utah. You don’t have to go into a park to see the natural beauty of the land. This is on a state highway headed towards Bryce Canyon National Park not far from Panguitch Utah.
