New Brooklyn Lake

New Brooklyn Lake this picture was taken about 8 years ago.  The lake does not look like this anymore.  Tomorrow I will get an updated picture of the lake as long as weather permits.

WP Photo Challenge: New

This weeks WP Photo Challenge is New

I decided to take some new pictures of a pond on my lunch break today.  Although the weather is getting cold and there is not much life (visible) at the lake was still relaxing and allowed for some reflection on the New Year.

For the last year or more I have been in a “rut”. This year is time for new thoughts and actions.  I will stop putting off till tomorrow what I can do today.  I will also be starting a new projet that has been on my mind for some time.

What is your version of “New”?

This photo was taken in July of 2011 at New Brooklyn Lake Park, I like it because the reflected sky is bluer then the actual sky.



I hope you like it too!

Side Street Sunday (2)

Side Street Sunday

Today for my Side Street Sunday post I decided to go to a well know park here in Camden County, Cooper River Park.  Instead of taking the usual route, I decided to take a side street that I have never ventured on.  

As a result of trying something new I ended up at a different end of the park that I have never seen before.  This is a nice and relaxing area.  Not many people were there like it usually is at the other end of the park.

Number 2 & 6 are also my entries for the WP Photo Challenge: Descend.  Click here to see my first entry into this weeks challenge.

A stroll in the park


A bridge has no allegiance to either side.” By Author unknown

Took a walk in Berlin Park today. I lived in this area for most of my life and never actually walked this park. 


A Dragonfly even decided to pose for me. 


I am not sure if this is a “weed” or a “flower” but I thought it photographed nicely.

Colorful Fungus

Colorful Fungus

I went to New Brooklyn Lake Park to take some pictures and experiment with Macro.  While taking pics of the fence I noticed this fungus growing on the pole.  When you look at it closely it looks like it has a mouth and it is wide open waiting for something to enter.

Traci and I were out and about on Route 206 and decided to stop into Atsion Lake in Wharton State Forest to see what pictures we could capture.  It was not too much of a picture-taking view at the lak,e too much of an overcast and everything looked grayish.  I was able to snap a few shot.   UPDATE 4/28/14 I am glad that we went to the Atsion Lake in Wharton State Forest the other day because it has now caught fire.  I hope that all is well and no one got hurt or worse.

Photo Excursion

Our photo excursion to Cape May NJ. 

 My nieces, nephew and I took a long ride yesterday thru the country of South Jersey. We stopped by a lake that had a lot of ducks just resting on the water. 

This is the first time that I let the little ones actually take pictures of what they saw (training future photographers).   They are fascinated by the amount of ducks that were there. 


After the lake we made our way to The Point at Cape May, NJ.  For an October day it was rather warm.  We felt a bit over dressed for the beach.  We took tons of pictures.  The kids decided to take a little stroll down the beach (they look so sweet together).

During this time of year the Monarch Butterflies make their annual migration to the south.  Since we got there a little late in the day, we did not get to see butterflies but what we did see was beautiful.


My nephew Carlito was able to get one on a small flower that he held.

Watch out America here are a few of the “Up and Coming Photographers”

of tomorrow!
