Dawn near Sienna

In 1986 my mother took the family on a vacation to Sienna, Italy. We stayed at a beautiful old rustic farmhouse outside of Sienna. The first morning there I woke up at dawn and went for a walk. The soft air and light sparkled. I knew I was someplace special. I left the road and explored down a path. I saw through the cypress trees and magnolias a ruin with a fresco. I was overwhelmed—tears sprang to my eyes. It was so beautiful; words can’t describe how I felt.

I have only a few pictures that I took with a point and shoot film camera.

High Line Thaw

It is now suddenly very warm in New York City. Some early spring flowers include Witch Hazel and Pussy Willow. Crocii were in the lawn but off limits for photography.

I had fun watching a mocking bird gulp down berries:

Hudson Snow

It took a bit of effort to go the three block is the snow early Saturday morning. I had to get a few photographs of New York City’s first snowfall of this winter.
