Finally posting some of the many photos I took during my San Juan, Puerto Rico trip. Continue reading In Puerto Rico: Old San Juan
While on our vacation last year in Puerto Rico, my family and I spent some time gazing at an aquarium in the hotel lobby. This sea urchin was in the tank, and while it looks like it’s in a perpetual apoplectic state and at first gave the creeps, the more I looked at, the more found it to be incredibly beautiful. While it was kind … Continue reading Ugly/Pretty
While at the Bayhouse Waterfront Bar & Grille in Rosedale, NY I took this photo using the Hipstamatic App. Even though it was a bright day the colors achieved in this shot were washed out giving the image a hazy, slightly gauzy feel. I love to use this app when I am feeling a sense of nostalgia and want the world to see what I am a feeling. These type of … Continue reading Hazy Outlook
I have always been attracted to the elegance of trees. Sun, rain, snow, they always represent a solitary strength to me. Each one with its own personality. And even when there are groups of them, they each seem to live alone, a freshness enveloped in ancient textures keeping years of secrets. Continue reading Lone Protectors

There were a few donut mixes to choose from, and we decided to try the Apple Cider Doughnuts from Stonewall Kitchen. It was a little … Continue reading Time to Bake the Donuts!
Flowers provide a sense of stirring calmness for me, as their beauty is still and quiet, yet their colors are vibrant attention grabbers. These marvels of nature compel me to document them. Short spans of existence in this world, flowers are the versatile Hallmark of nature. When given they express love, well wishes, thank yous, appreciation, apologies, sympathy and congratulations among so many other feelings and … Continue reading Still Beauty
Life is an outline that we have to fill-in the way we see fit. When we are young others guide our hands in sketching out the lines and as we gain confidence and take the reigns we color in those lines ourselves. Now and then in stark defiance or better judgement we erase it all and start over. Often we let others take over our … Continue reading Steady Lines
