This vicious sea gull stands its ground by relentless squawking and wings lifted high. It’s ready for a show down as other gulls dive-bomb in pursuit of abandoned turkey scraps.

A Light in the Window

Uncategorized

An early morning walk on Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, VA is a refreshing treat for both mind and body.  This particular morning was cool and chilly.  Smell of smoke from nearby chimneys permeated the air with the smell of the season.  This particular time of day a warm glow flowed from window of this home that gave me a cozy and comfortable feeling.

With colder temperature and frost on the window, Colonial Williamsburg, VA has joined in the winter fest.  Cradled between merchant square and the historic Colonial section on Duke of Gloucester street is an outdoor skating rink.  A place for the young at heart.

Halloween Eve Escape

Uncategorized

This is a story about three British brothers of His majesty’s navy named Boney, Bones and Boner.  Several hundred years ago they were chained and shackled in an underground dungeon in the very pits of the Capitol of Williamsburg.  They were accused of witchery.  Instead of death by fire, they were to rot to death.  At the time of their sentence, an old haggard woman with a long chin, warts on her nose and hair like straw placed a curse on them.  The curse was for them to live forever without skin, mind, heart and spirit.  It is year 2016.  The Skeleton brothers have resurrected from the pits of the underground.

Boner stands with telescope in hand over-looking the area as Bones lowers Boney to the ground. Boney hollers to Bones “Don’t let go of that rope or my bones will break.”

Once on the ground their bones rattled as they ran to the fence.  Swiftly they climbed over the gate. Boner yells, “We are free at last.”

The three of them stopped for a break. Bones says,” my joints ache, it must be arthritis.” “It is old age, here eat an apple” said Boney.

Boner points to a stage coach.  “Let’s try to get a ride to Yorktown, maybe we can find our old sailing vessel.”

Oh to be welcomed amongst a flock of birds and see the excitement of these pigeons. Their wings open like outstretched arms flapping like hands clapping with enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to photograph these exhilarating creatures.
