Ferris Wheel Erie County Fair

When I took this photo, I was interested in seeing it in black and white. It was about the last image taken at the end of a very fun afternoon.

Nature Area in Chautauqua County

I can't remember the name of this site despite having made many visits here. The nature are is a little strange in that to reach the ponds at the back section of the area you must cross these train tracks to rejoin the trail. The area is teaming with wildlife. We have literally seen dozens of cedar waxwings and hummingbirds here. One pond is home to a very large beaver lodge. Frogs and ducks abound here.

The Bridges of Ashtabula County

Many counties proclaim the wonders of their covered bridges, but Ashtabula County really embraces them. Each year they devote a weekend in October to a covered bridge festival. Their bridges are noteworthy since many are still open to regular traffic. This is one that remains open. We were in the area to hunt for a geocache placed by a friend, Rev. Mike. We found the cache and a peaceful moment exploring a wonderful piece of the past.

The Rookery

The Rookery is a park in the Geauga Park District. It is a favorite four seasons park for us and one of our favorite places for cross country skiing. This photo was taken in late December 2004 as we prepared to head out for a late afternoon ski.

Tanbark Trail - Allegheny National Forest

The Tanbark Trail has always been one of our favorite destinations away from home. The trail has a diverse mix of habitats and offers wonderful hiking for the area. We usually start at Sandstone Springs or park at a pull-off on Route 62 to hike this area. My favorite spots on the trail are walking through the peaceful hemlocks, picking blueberries in the new growth area, and playing in the rocks. This photo was taken Memorial Day weekend 2005.

The photos here will be my favorite portrait prints in black and white. I plan to keep this to 50 photos at most. If I find something to add, I will take away. They are here for you to enjoy and reflect. I will try to add notes where appropriate.
