I love the bright lights of the Christmas Season. Commercial excess... May be a reminder to "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

Two scenes from the red eye flight from Kansas City to Philadelphia. The day's first light can be wondrous.

Two sunsets and an early morning fog overlooking the Perkiomen Valley.

Friday night - enjoyed pizza and Matt & Stacey's pond. For years I had a creek in my back yard and N-E-V-E-R had a frog visit. They build a pond and right away they have frogs... and photogenic frogs at that...

I have this CD/Radio in the wall. It doesn't work. Any recommendations on a replacement? There is power to it and it is wired to four speakers throughout the house. It is a Memorex CDR-1000MH.

Francie says that this is a "butterfly". Well I don't know that it isn't. Nevertheless they are very pretty flowers.

We took a week to go to Disney World with Jessica, Alicia and their parents. When it started to rain, we took refuge in "Finding Nemo, the Musical". The program was very well done. And the girls really enjoyed it. The adults were pretty tired from trying to keep up with them. Jessica loves trains and talked me into two train rides - actually they were roller coasters disguised as trains. I am still sore from all the jostling. :)

It is nice to have a break from the Spring rains... the colors were vibrant this week too...

We built our home to serve a large family... three kids, my mother and us. Well now our kids have kids (and their own places) and my mom died this past year, so we are looking to move to a smaller place. This slide show is our attempt to show the house off to someone who needs the space where three generations can live together well. You can think of it as a four bedrooms, two baths and an in-law suite... All of this is on a quiet wooded location that provides 2/3rds of an acre - room to play and just relax in Abington Township. Here is the YouTube version, it's a little more polished.

Testing a new lens, hopefully it will be a versatile walking around addition. What I want it to provide is the ability to shoot close-ups, image stabilization, good overall sharpness and a relatively fast maximum aperture. This is one of my first shots with the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.0 OS.

Last week I took a trip to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina and walked up to the top of Kill Devil Hill where the Wright Brother's made man's first powered flight. It was the right time of the year to experience the weather they had that December. Had a great time and learned a lot. It is definitely worth the price of adminission. For $4.00 you get a pass for a whole week.
