I have this thing for doors, steel bridges, and dogs. But my secret won't go any further than this website. While visiting Joy and Denny this past summer I saw this red door and immediately said, "Stop!" Even though the house was boarded up and abandoned, this single door called out to me. I always [...]
I continue to miss my Toccoa cows and all the other wildlife living in the area! Recently, these PA cows helped to ease my sense of loss. Of course, remembering how much Chipley loves cows always makes me smile. The baby in this photo certainly would have made him howl!
I really love this area in western Pennsylvania. I think if I lived here I could really have a hobby photographing the countryside. The above photo is of a small Amish school. I have more photos to post, but they will come later . . . maybe tomorrow. As I took this shot, Amish families [...]

I've gotten accustomed to going on "Denny Day Trips" that take me and those with me to far away places. On Wednesday afternoon, we packed the car and headed north or east or somewhere. Now that I think about it, when I'm in PA, I just let him and his wife Joy plan the day. [...]
Joy and Denny, who are my Pennsylvania friends, are heading south but not until March. If they could, they would come tomorrow. But this is true of many, who live in the northeast. I heard a news report last week saying that people, who live in the northeast portion of the US, are fed up [...]
