I still love Black & White Film

All the the photos above were taken when I still developed my own black and white film.  I used to spend hours in my darkroom developing millions of negatives until digital was introduced.  I still spend hours playing around on Photoshop. Sometimes...I like the serious faces.

Full Moon 2/17/2011

There was an awesome full moon tonight!!! One of my friends sent me a text on my cell phone and gave me the "heads up".  So glad that he did because I would have missed it. It didn't take long before it was hidden by clouds.  I've always been intrigued with the weather and astronomy.  If you look closely it looks like there is snow on the moon.

My Daughter's Artwork

This has nothing to do with photography but I'd like to post it anyway.  This is my daughter's artwork when she was a lot younger.  She is now 21 years old.  I kind of think when she drew it at the time, she was thinking about a boy that she probably had a crush on.  What do you think?


The color yellow represents to me, the sun, brightness, happy and warmth.  The warmer weather cannot come fast enough.  Seems like this winter never ended. Blizzards and snow storms were throughout the eastern U.S.   Snow is pretty when it first falls in Connecticut, but after plowing, it's all dirty.  So I want to be in a yellow mood.  I can see now, why, yellow is my daughter's favorite color. This photo was taken in Stony Creek, Ct. during the end of the summer last year, when sunflowers are plentiful. I can hear the birds tweeting, feel the warm summer breeze and the smell of the sea at high tide.  Let's go for a dip in the ocean.

Gini And Her Daughter

Valentine' Day if for people you love or have loved so I just had to post this picture in memory of my friend Gini, before she was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer at the age of 43.  She had 4 children all under the age of 7.  I met her when my daughter and her oldest daughter were in Kindergarden.  Our kids were best friends at that time. Gini was one of my best friends. This woman was the great mommy to her children. What a great friend she was and was always happy.  Her kids came first.  I miss her dearly and I think of her often .  Hopefully in Heaven, she knows that! Some people have great impact in our lives and she did for me.  Bless her!  To you ya!!!
Why is it that the good die young?
