Wash Day

My parents did not have a clothes dryer.  All of the laundry was hung outside on the wash line to dry.  During winter and wet weather, we used wash lines in the basement.  I will always remember shaking the laundry in the summer before bringing it in the house to make sure there were no critters coming along for the ride.  Seeing this makeshift clothes line reminded me of the good old days when every yard had a wash line and the clothes came off the line hardly wrinkled and smelling fresh!



A few of my favorite things…..

I feel the need for another beach day coming on!
Ahhhh….to just be alone with your thoughts and the sea (and maybe a gull or two!)

Nope … never get tired of walking along the beach … looking for seashells, watching the gulls, dipping my toes in the ocean!



My Happy Place…

Evening in Lancaster County

Winter is my favorite time to visit Lancaster County, Pa.  The trees are bare and the fields cut back which allows the visitor a closer look at the beautiful barns and landscape.

Daybreak … late December … fog …  a last glimpse of the snow before it melted on a 60+ degree day in Pennsylvania.  Some of the Oaks are still hanging on to their leaves and the evergreens are adding color to the otherwise dreary landscape.

Fall in the Country

I love old barns …. especially red ones!  In my pre-pet photography days, I frequently went out in search of barns and great landscapes to photograph.  Finding barns isn’t so difficult, but finding pretty barns, in a nice setting, without a lot of clutter is a little more challenging.  Finding a red barn sitting beside a tree with bright yellow/orange leaves on a sunny Fall afternoon is like winning the lottery!



Lake Francis

With heavy rain and wind in the forecast, I thought it might be good to head out yesterday to photograph the colors of Fall before all of the leaves are on the ground.  This is a scene from Lake Francis – outside of Hazleton, Pa.  I usually end up visiting this spot a week or two beyond peak color (not by choice, but because I forget to go!), but yesterday I was pleasantly surprised with the vivid reds, yellows, and oranges that I saw around the perimeter of the lake.  There were plenty of folks enjoying a hike, picnic and I even saw a couple having their engagement photos taken!  A great day for photography!
