Buzzing Around

Testing out the Olympus TG-3 in macro mode this morning. This thing is absolutely amazing.

Lehigh Valley Air Show

Lehigh Valley International Airport put on this show last year and it was a huge success. They did it again this year and it was equally as good, if not slightly better. It took place last weekend and Sunday was the prettier day. However, I thought Saturday made for a more dynamic photographic opportunity, which is the day I shot.

Jazz Cabaret – Eric Mintel Quartet

Last month’s Jazz Cabaret was another sellout. The Eric Mintel Quartet mastered the balance of the acoustics in Miller Symphony’s Hall’s Rodale Room on Friday July 18th. I had the pleasure of photographing the Quartet while they played songs from Coldplay, Sting, Aerosmith and others as well as many of their own originals. Their performance was enticing and audience engaging.

Fonthill & Moravian Tile Works

As part of my Doylestown trip, I also visited Fonthill Castle & the Moravian Tile Works. Fonthill was constructed in the early 1900’s and was the home of Henry Mercer. In addition to his home, he built Fonthill as a showcase for his collections of tiles & prints. In 1985 it was designated a National Historic Landmark. The facility that produced the tile, is now known as the Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. It is within walking distance of Fonthill. Handmade tiles are still being made in a similar fashion to the way Mercer produced them from 1898 to 1930.
