Sunrise Jogger

In the morning, there are those who love to run.
I’m not in that camp.

London

London, England, Parliament

Photograph made on a return visit to London several years ago.
I love traveling to England, but am not sure about the future.
When I made my first trip for my honeymoon in 1984, the roundtrip
tickets for my wife and I were around $200 each.
If only that were still the case today.


The Sky

Arizona

Somewhere in Arizona near Monument Valley.


Lonely Moon

On a dark and lonely night, I saw the moon behind some tree
branches and heard the howl of a wolfman in the distance.

Travelin’ by Train

Steam locomotive train

Traveling by train is part journey, part discovery and part destination.


Fairy Tale

Some moments are like a fairy tale.


A Mannequin in the Window

Mannequin

Always happy.
Always smiling.
Always willing to be your friend.
The Mannequin.

You’re traveling through another dimension,
a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.
A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.
That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Twilight Zone!


Full Moon over Cape Cod

Provincetown, Cape Cod, Nighttime, Stars, Astronomical, Astronomy photography

The town pictured is Provincetown, at the tip of the Cape.
When the Moon is full, it glows like a midnight sun losing all detail.
The glowing point of light at the bottom middle is Pilgrim’s Monument.


Cable Car Operator

San Francisco Cable Car

Traveling on a cable car in San Francisco is  part of the experience.
But imagine being the cable car operator. You not only have to operate
antique machinery, but you also have to warn knuckleheads who come
dangerously close to losing a limb.

Count Basie Musicians

Count-Basie-Orchestra--Musicians

I am a fan of Big Band music and was recently assigned to take photographs of the Count Basie Orchestra performing. Needless to say, I was excited. Before the band went onstage I took the opportunity to go backstage and talk to a few of the members.

The 3 gentlemen pictured have been with the orchestra for many years. The gentleman on the left was also with the Duke Ellington orchestra at one time. I asked the gentleman on the right about the Basie Orchestra’s appearance in the Mel Brook’s film “Blazing Saddles” and it wasn’t Basie’s real band.

Before taking their photo, I asked for permission and it was granted. The photo was taken with available light, which was VERY little. I thought it best to take it “as is” and not waste the moment getting a flash and losing the opportunity.

Disappointment

amusement park ride, child, little girl

A summertime vacation ride at an amusement park should be fun and exciting for a little girl.
So why is this little girl crying? Because she doesn’t have the front seat on
this two person ride. Which goes to show, even when you have everything you want,
disappointment is still a possibility.
