Welcome to Parks Photos. If you're not sure how or why you're here, you need a good talking to, and this page is for you.
My original goal was to visit each of Pennsylvania's State Parks, and record the light in photographs, and perhaps some thoughts in a blog. That was the beginning of the snowball that developed down a much larger landscape. Now I can admit that I don't really know what I'm doing, and it's going much better.
Most photos within are the result of an on-the-go approach to the craft. By that I mean I rarely if ever have a particular photo in mind when I visit an area, but rather rely on something that seems to come from within provided I stay out of thy way. We'll call it Creativity, and one day there'll be more about in the blog.
At the top of each main page of the website you will find links that will bring you back here, take you to the PA State Parks page, the other Parks page, and the National Parks page, where you can find links to my photos from all of those magnificent places. The Galleries link will take you to a page of links to all (or most) of the galleries on Parks Photos. For the most recent outings see the Chronology Page. As implied, in addition to the photos the domain name infers, there will be a blog of some sort where... well, who knows what I'll talk about? To find out, click on the Blah-Blog button. The Links link is to a page that provides links to friends' websites, as well as some charities for you to consider. Nudge me here to add your site.
When I first started this site the primary objective, as mentioned, was to photograph all of the 117 state parks in Pennsylvania. Several years later that has yet to be accomplished. Also, when this site began there was no planned pages for places that are NOT parks, nor for places outside the USA. Rather than make a whole new header for so many existing pages, the places NOT in parks can be found in the OTHER PARKS section, and the places outside of the US will be found in the NATIONAL PARKS page. That makes some sense, doesn't it?
