Winter departs… Spring will pass quickly… Summer stays & sizzles

We enjoy our all too short Winter… the sky is bright blue and often cloudless. The humidity is bearable for once. Spring – one of the nicest seasons – departs quickly as the Summer sun returns north of the equator. The unrelenting heat drives us to seek water and shade. Boats and beaches – sea breezes and cool drinks – air conditioning and thoughts of the mountains. But Summer is our favorite season – it has to be – it seems to never give up or go away.

It’s also a favorite time to enjoy photography. The colors are amazing and if you’re lucky, the day will end with a cooling thunderstorm – light show included!

Bring on the Summer!

People that knew my mom… 1939

An unusual topic, but since I had recently scanned these images from one of my mom’s photo albums I felt I should do something with them. I can’t bring myself to simply just throw pictures away – as a photographer it doesn’t seem right. But why was I using up valuable(?) storage space on my PC for strangers? Well for one they did know my mom and were her friends and were important in her life. So, why not share them with you all – like facebook only the 1939 version.

What strikes me the most is just how similar these images are from 78 years ago to the images you see posted on social media today. Young 20-somethings goofing around in front of a camera and having fun together. Photography is a universal language that we all speak and understand and the people captured in the images “live” forever on film and in our minds.

All images are taken in and around New York City –¬†except for a few, my mom was the photographer and shooting with her Kodak.

Sea Oats & Sea Fog

15220558998_aedec7be14_o

Almost sunset… sea oats along the dunes – sea fog obscures, the sun leaves its mark. Florida’s Atlantic coast. Winter’s days are numbered – Spring will be gone in a flash. Summer, well summer sticks around – and stays and stays.

Enjoying the brief cool days before the sun reminds us where we live.

All the best,
