Please enjoy a selection of photos taken by me during the 2016 Summer Vacation. In this album, I traveled from to Longbeach Key, Florida to the great waters of Niagara Falls to Corning, New York, home of the greatest Glass Museum. These pictures are a selection of the many photos I took on my journey. I specialize in color photography, which can be seen throughout this album and many others that I have.
have their own order
and their own
as the order that binds them
the pieces from the darkness
between the spaces where they were
and as if
in loving care
guides and whispers, soft persuasion uses,
to the new born blankness
of shatterings oblivion
to postures new and
I held her hand,
As the dark-coiled clouds
Pressed and tumbled over each other,
Spreading, piling high as they surged forth
From some unseen source
Of darkness in the sky.
We walked along the river’s edge,
And she, oblivious, splashed happily
In the spreading puddles,
As sheets of dark rain,
Slapped the surface of the river,
Sending patterns of waves
This way and that
Until the waters seethed like a cauldron
And lines of spray danced upon the surface
Beneath the darkened sky.
Would ,Warm Waters, that your cleansing embrace,
my sole with timid touch burned anon,
(But what soul could shy from such soothing grace!)
Bubble and boil about ever long!
To cool now would betray your fountain’s lord,
abandoning your care to hostile air!
Dry enemy let each lung amply hoard,
that your imminent victim prolong despair.
For standing again will stiffen my bones,
