Slowing down the shutter speed for some hoedown action at the Kutztown Folk Festival in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.


The grave markers at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery are a solemn reminder of those who served our country in time of war and are now buried here.  This is the smallest of the national cemeteries and features an impressive monument (the Pennsylvania Veterans Memorial) that honors veterans from all eras from the Revolutionary War forward.  I found it very sad that only one of the markers in all of these photographed was decorated with flowers and flags.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Independence Day!



The turquoise doors on this barn caught my eye.  It’s not a color that you often see on a barn door.  I love it.  The moody sky was a bonus in this late afternoon drive through the country over the weekend.


This caught my eye the minute I saw it.  Every inch of this basket and trunk had an interesting shape or texture.  I couldn’t walk by without stopping to photograph them.  A black and white conversion seemed a logical choice for processing so that the viewer isn’t distracted by color.
