Stroud Preserve – Wooded Trail

As I was scrolling down my Facebook wall, checking in with life, I noticed a thumbnail that looked familiar, and when I begin to read the content, I was very happily surprised!

I am very happy to announce that my trail shoot taken last weekend at Stroud Preserve in West Chester, has been selected as the Facebook Profile picture for VisitPA!

This is a great honor and I hope that you will enjoy the picture as much as I do.

If you are interested in seeing other images from that walk, they can be found on my Flickr Photostream.

You can also read my more details in photo blog entry, “Nature Walk at Stroud Preserve.”

Thanks again to the folks at VisitPA!

VisitPA – Friday Foto and Madison’s 7th Birthday!

WOW! What a morning of activity!

My alarm clock did not go off…

No need, instead, all one could hear in the house was the screaming giggles of joy!

“It’s my Birthday! It’s my Birthday!”

Madison is now 7, and I think the whole township is aware!

After getting the kids off to school and daycare, I could start my day by checking in with the world.

As I checked Facebook, I too got my own present!

My “Abiah Taylor Barn (1724)” image that I had taken on Tuesday (12/14) had been selected as this week’s VisitPA’s “Friday Foto“!

This is my second “Friday Foto“, with my first one back in September, and once again, I am deeply honored for the recognition!

What was really humbling, was reading some of the comments…

A couple of people posted say that the images reminded them of the work of Andrew Wyeth.

I have a LONG way to go, if ever, to reach that caliber of mastery.

But I do wish to Thank VisitPA.com again for their selection!

and…

Happy 7th Birthday Madison! — We Love you very much!

White Rock Forge Covered Bridge (1849)

White Rock Forge Covered Bridge (1849)

Kirkwood, Lancaster County [38-36-18]

After stopping at Wawa to get something to drink and eat, we got into the car, and started to drive and drive and drive.

At first we were going fast, because we were on the highway, but after a long time, we turned and turned on to smaller and smaller roads.

Some times it smelled like poop. Yucky!

Finally, we got there, this what I saw…
