Shore Lines of Sight

Two shorelines clinging close to “Brightwood” lake, And wait so I may choose which path to take, For on the left a fisher-person’s dream, Sure footing, toss my line into the stream, But on the right a picnic spot awaits, And marshy coves where ducklings paddle straits, Yet Frost reminds, “I’ve promises to keep,” And […]

Night Visitors

The snow lies lovely, sterling bright and white, A broad-spread blanket, crystalline and smooth, For days confined, snowed-in near cabin’s hearth, While gazing out at moonlit silken glaze, As crackling fires loll this drowsy night And turned-down quilts bid welcome winter’s sleep. The January sun completes our plan, A torch announcing dawning of the day, […]

He smiled to mask the lies, this very day, Earth’s revolution, sun-filled shards of light, The […]

Depth of Field, A Gallery of Favorites

A gallery of my photographs that utilize depth of field to focus on and accentuate the subject.  From macro shots of flowers in bloom, blurring surrounding foliage and contrasting vines into the background, to goldfinch pairs busily attacking a backyard feed, and finally to a hand crafted wind chime, hanging  at the museum in Caguas, […]

Unrestrained. (Photo Friday: Metal)

  This photograph was taken last week while I was touring the Jardín Botánico y Cultural de Caguas, Puerto Rico. It’s amazing to consider that centuries before the birth of Christ, The indigenous  peoples of Puerto Rico, represented by this Taino Indian, were living and thriving. I was particularly impressed with this depiction of man […]
