After taking Barbara to the Philadelphia Airport on Wednesday mornng, I was encouraged by traffic problems to venture just north of the airport to do a bit of exploringn at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum (This area was occupied by the Lenape Indians who named it Tinicum).
This spot is absolutely amazing: Situated between Interstate 95, Philadelphia International Airport, and the Delaware River to the south - numerous Refineries and gas plants to the north, this vast marshland is the largest remaining freshwater tidal marsh in Pennsylvania.
I spent a good deal of time exploring and taking images as best I could allowing for the fact that the morning was bright and sunny and the oncoming mid-day was fast approaching.
Over the coming days or weeks, I hope to share some of the photos that I captured here I hope you enjoy.
Oh, and By The Way - Barbara arrived in San Francisco safe ad sound and is now ebjoying little Aurora Jean immensely! Thanks to al of you for your wonderful comments and notes.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
