Littleton, New Hampshire is the hometown of the author of Pollyanna, and the town puts on a happy face. Colorful umbrellas adorn the walkways, and the town’s motto is “Be Glad”. It is difficult not to smile in this happy little town!
On a trip to Cuba in January 2017, we were treated to a private performance by the renowned dancers from Danza Combinatoria. Beautiful widow light captured the concentration and grace of this dancer.
On a trip to Arizona in April, 2016, we visited Antelope Canyon. A slot canyon carved by water, it is today a beautiful winding walkway through colorful rocks. But it still can be dangerous should a flash flood come through – there is no quick escape from inside the slot.

“A Hazy Shade of Winter” Third Place, Assigned Category – Bridges. Chester County Camera Club, February, 2016
While photographing the Philadelphia Naval Yard, we made a stop at the headquarters for Urban Outfitters. A creatively refurbished factory, the premises include a dog park for employees who bring their dogs to work, and these wonderful picnic tables.
Another find at Urban Outfitters at the Philadelphia Naval Yard. This dress in the window caught my eye.
