Here Comes 2018…

I have a lot of fun putting together my own calendars, here are the 2 for 2018

wall calendar…  all pictures are Martha’s Vineyard taken in October, except May which is Cape May, New Jersey


desk calendar… same here, all pictures are Martha’s Vineyard in October, except for Cape May, New Jersey for May…


Here’s to filling our calendars of 2018 with good memories, good health and good friends 🙂


Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorites…

Define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.


I have a hard time settling on one picture for almost all of the challenges and this one is no different so here goes… my gallery…

Martha’s Vineyard is up first… I can never take enough pictures of my favorite place on the planet. These were taken in October 2017.

Cape May, New Jersey.. April 2017

And of course one must have a favorite flower picture 🙂

But I think one of my favorite pictures is the re-creation my daughter Deb and I did of my mother and grandmother from the 1920’s, standing (and sitting) by the statue of Lincoln in front of the courthouse in Newark, New Jersey.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Order…

From glass bottles in Edison’s workshop in NJ, to copper pots in Newport, RI, to boats in the harbor at Plymouth, MA, to chairs in the Tabernacle on MV, to a display of peppers, to bikes in New York City, to grapes in a vineyard in Cape May, New Jersey.  These are my choices for … order .


Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent…

 Evanescent can be any fleeting moment in time and sunsets certainly qualify as such.

Cape May, New Jersey – May 2017.
