Minotaur 1 rocket launch

This Minotaur 1 rocket was launched from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island, Virginia November 19 at about 8:15 pm. The vehicle was carrying a payload of 29 satellites into orbit – a record number of satellites ever carried into orbit by a single rocket. (You can read more about it here.) This photo […]

Sunset over Harper’s Ferry

I’ve hiked up here twice in three days; the first time I went way up the mountain above without any water and got really dehydrated. Take a clue – if you hike up to such a place take water. The lookout point by trail is much farther than the distance as the crow flies. Take […]

Smart phone photos

So my old phone finally died and I had to go out and find a new one. I really liked my LG Chocolate flip phone. It was by far the best, most reliable cell phone I’ve ever had. Admittedly it took lousy pictures, but that’s what my big cameras are for. And the LG held […]

Julie Harris passing

A remarkable woman, brilliant on both stage and screen, has just passed away. And such a warm person, without least bit of prima donna about her when I made this photo back in 1994. She played nine notable literary women, including Mary Todd Lincoln, in a special presentation at Lebanon Valley College, and for three […]

Coal Country exhibit and book event

My novel, The Redemption of Valerie Tolliver, was published this spring. It’s currently available as an e-book at Smashwords.com. Print copies also were made for a book event and signing, and should be available into the foreseeable future (you can email me to buy one). After the novel was published as an e-book I made […]

Spring tiptoes in

Poet Carl Sandburg wrote that the fog comes on little cat feet. I’m thinking spring does too. We’re emerging from the winter doldrums in mid-Maryland, very slowly but surely. Here’s an overview as of March 31: early flowers are out; the leaves are kinda sorta ready to pop – well, maybe in a few weeks. […]

New black and white

Recently I put black and white film into my old Rolleiflex again for the first time in several years. I haven’t gone very far with it, at least not yet. Nor have I hauled out my old 4×5 view camera. But with Spring finally here I have a feeling that could happen. So far I’ve […]

Lebanon Valley College President’s Report

Over 20 years ago I did my first photo shoot for Lebanon Valley College. In the time since I’ve probably made more photographs for LVC than any other client. With the addition of Bishop Library, the incredible Arnold Sports Center, the Peace Garden and the current Mund College Center expansion I’ve watched the campus grow […]

The birds

Coming out of the supermarket a few nights ago I first heard, then saw all the birds in the trees across the road. It wasn’t the first time I had noticed them, but this time I had a bit of free time. I got my camera from the car and walked across the road to […]

Moonrise over the Appalachian Trail

A hazy, almost-full mooon was rising by the time I finished my hike on the Appalachian Trail last evening. This photo was made from South Mountain near Myersville, Maryland.
