chestercountyramblings….the photography book

This labor of love is finally finished! It was hard to choose which photos made the cut for my first photography book devoted entirely to the beauty of Chester County! I hope you all order LOTS of copies, and enjoy each and every one! This book, like my other photography books makes a great gift for yourself or for someone else! The book is available in soft cover, image wrap, or hard cover.

the best kind of summer afternoon

The best kind of summer afternoon involves sunny skies, low humidity, me and my camera.  Today was one of those days and I loved every minute of it!

My friend Pattye Benson asked for my help with the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust’s 8th Annual Historic House Tour that is slated for September 22nd.

So off I went to photograph to my heart’s content.  What a glorious afternoon and what a fun tour this will be!

Interested in the tour?

12 Noon – 5 PM
Ticket Price $35
Prepaid Tickets only, no sales at the door

See Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust Website for more details and how/where to buy tickets!

This was much more fun than being packed in like sardines over at the Helicopter Museum to be sandwiched between foaming at the mouth tea partiers and equally foaming at the mouth Obama lovers to listen to V.P. candidate Paul Ryan blather.

Yeah vote in November, but before you have to think about that, buy tickets to the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust’s 8th annual Historic House Tour.  It is all for a great cause and historic preservation!

Keep it local, folks.  Hearth and home and history will be here long after politicians have come and gone.






devon horse show 2012

It was fun to be there on the first day.  Scored a killer hat from a lady from Northeast Harbor Maine who had surprisingly reasonable prices (there was one little store peddling significantly more expensive hats).  She has a store called “The Romantic Room”….I showed restraint, only bought one…had a Devon burger, pink lemonade, watched horses and civilized life go by.

In short, it was a fabulous day.

There were also a plethora of plein air painters out and  about.

I haven’t been a daytimer at Devon in 20 years.  Did see one gal from my class in high school.  It pained me that it pained her to say hello.  (Not really, I found it amusing that she was as I remembered….just older.)

But seriously, Devon Horse Show was really nice today.  (And I made it to my car just before the heavens opened up.)

Enjoy the photos!  Find more HERE.
