A day in...paradise!

Dear friends,

Welcome to my "PHOTOBLOG" Newsletter, a monthly publication which is being sent to clients and friends, to keep them updated on my current photographic interests, new works and future developments.

My goal is to format the Newsletter around a short series of images, which I will try to describe briefly, so that important or interesting details will be easily available to the viewer.

Most of the imagery displayed here will also be on view at " IMAGES" Photographic Art Gallery, located at 14406 Detroit Avenue in beautiful Downtown Lakewood,and I would be happy to extend to all an invitation to stop by sometime for a visit.

As always, I will appreciate your comments and suggestions pertaining to my work, and, should you enjoy these images, please feel free to share the"PHOTOBLOG" with friends and others as well; anyone interested in my work could be easily added to my distribution list by contacting me at

or   by visiting at


How do YOU define " A day in...paradise"? It means so many different things to so many people, as clearly everyone of us has their own way to define " happiness " in our lives, relations and activities. To the " snow birds" flying off to Florida in the winter it means pool, sun, golf and the beach, some time...whereas to us Ohioans it might mean camping or sailing on the Lake, or a baseball game downtown! So, there is no absolute definition which might fit everyone's desires; it's August, then let's look at some pictures possibly representative of some degree of happiness for someone out there...well, at least this is my way to look at the issue!
Have fun, and relax a little...may be you'll get an idea or two out of this blog!

A day in...paradise!
  A day at the beach,'s August, it IS the perfect thing to do! A crowded beach in Fort Myers and a very solitary spot at a magnificent small lake in Umbria: your choice!
But if you happen to LOVE Lake Erie... what better than a shady spot on... Clifton Beach to relax and enjoy the day!

 The beginning of a "new day" on the shores of Lake Erie, a couple of summers ago when the Lake waters were not as high as they have been this year; above, spectacular sand castles constructions often seen on the beaches around Naples, Fla.

Recent sail boats racing earlier in July, as seen from my backyard...those kids were having a lot fun on that weekend!
Above, a busy pool with lots of "snow birds" hanging around...a classic picture anywhere in the South come January...

   What better than an old fashion Carousel for children of all ages? This is the one on Put in Bay.

Back from a succesful fishing trip...a very happy youngster indeed!
A tranquil moment, sitting by the water somewhere...perfect!

 The little girl and her ice cream: the absolute definition of happiness!

And, for the rest of us, may be  a night downtown with the " Summer boys" taking an other one home could be the answer...

 "About...Cleveland!", a series of personal and some vintage images of CLE. concluded its showing at the  Blackbird baking Co. "Clark Gallery" in Lakewood, where you can now view Mary Pat Oliver striking watercolors of Lakewood, the Metropark, the Lake and much more...definitively worth a visit and a look, away from your daily routine!


A 30 pieces selection of my works is currently on view at the Renaissance Indipendent Living Facility Art Gallery in Omsted Falls Township, titled "Lensworks". Enjoy them if you happen to be around there!


The first International "Cleveland Photo Fest", opening throughout the City in September, is fast approaching; you will read and hear about this event soon around town, and I am very pleased to announce that "IMAGES" Gallery was selected to host one of the main exhibits, opening on Septeer 15th, with works of Richard Margolis, a preeminent photographer from Rochester, NY. More details on the September Photoblog.


As always, we are pleased to welcome anyone interested to view some of my new photography available at "IMAGES" during the Summer months...we are only a phone call away!!

So...stay busy, keep cool and have fun...!
