This delightful image was made with the cooperation of my nephew Ian and his wonderful wife, Alexis. If anyone doubts the richness of digital images, this one should end the debate. For old folks like me, the sight of young people in love is a source of both nostalgia and encouragement.

Fog and snow are an irresistible combination.

This image was made in the San Diego Wild Animal Park, from the rubber tired monorail that runs through it. The tram stopped to let people see these graceful animals, but I saw only rocks - so much for the photographers critical eye. Everybodys oooo-ing and aaahh-ing and I am asking my wife, "Sue, what I am supposed to be seeing." All she kept saying was, "there, right there." I finally saw them and got one shot off before we rolled away.

Do the math. This sign had been in the window of our local A&P for weeks. Eventually, I grabbed a camera and my four-year-old. "But I don't know how to read," he said. "Dont worry, it won't matter," I told him. The A&P eventually failed and I have always wondered if their astonishing mathematical disability had anything to do with it.

Fireworks on Canada Day in Banff start after eleven o'clock. It just isn't dark enough until then. We were on the banks of the Bow River and the sound of revelers on the other side was clear. We even heard the splash when one sot was taunted into taking a dip. I wonder if he has recovered from hypothermia yet.

This image was taken in Kent, Connecticut behind an old barn. I almost passed it by, but it's rare to find stark blacks, pure whites and rich grays. Sometimes it's hard to decide whether you are inspired or just pressing.

This shot was taken near Banff, in Alberta, Canada. It's just one little beautiful spot among a limitless number nearby. It had rained overnight and fog shrouded the mountains. Just after dawn the sun broke through on this very pleasing scene.

Simply put, Yosemite Park contains the most visually stunning scenery I've yet seen. It was created by Congress in 1890, the second park in the national park system. Surprisingly, Yosemite Valley, the jewel of the park, didnt become part of its territory until 1906. This shot was taken along the banks of the Merced River, which runs west through the valley. If there's any way for you to do it, get there.

Infrared film reacts not just to the visible spectrum, but also to the infrared. So cool things, like sky and water are darker and warm things, like leaves and sand are lighter. Half the fun is that you never really know what you'll get. Try it!

Taken at a West Lake, near home. No boats, just swans.

Nubble Light is located on an island in York, Maine. Everybody photographs it and every restaurant within 100 miles has one framed shot on the wall. They are mostly uninteresting, unless you have a lighthouse fetish. I got up at some ungodly hour to be in York for dawn and then I waited, freezing in summer. I needed the sun to shine through the clouds, the lighthouse light to rotate my way and a bird to fly close enough to appear as more than just a dot in the sky. Even to me that seemed like a lot to ask. I got very lucky.

Savannah has a definite Southern charm combined with a preconceived plan; it's walkable and fair.

This really isn't Uncle Jack, I have no Uncle Jack, but it is Jack Shoemaker, my most extraordinary character. He looked like Abraham Lincoln to me when I was a kid, except he was always fooling around and laughing a lot. I saw him as more of an entertainer than a president.

"Uncle" Jack was the perfect uncle.

We all know beauty when we see it, but looking for beauty isn't quite so easy. And creating it is something else altogether. Sometimes a long exposure reveals not so much what is seen, but rather what is felt.

Half Dome is one of the signature features of Yosemite National Park. If you have about 12 hours, you can hike to the top. It's 17 miles round trip and the hike up gains 4,800 feet along the way to 8,842.
