One of my favorite photographic subjects, and clients @crayola, has decided to retire the color #Dandelion. Wishing him well in his travels and waiting to see what color will replace him. Although it’s hard to replace that shade of #yellow in any #artwork. Hopefully, he, or she will be just as #colorful as Dandelion. This image attached is a photograph I made a few years ago of him coming off the production line at the Crayola #Factory for the first time. If you look real close you can see him on the very top of the dandelion stack. #NationalCrayonDay #CelebrateDandelion #crayons #crayola #childhood #fun #celebrate #retirement #crayolafactory

This is from an unpublished photo essay I worked on in 1989 at the Infectious Disease Clinic at Temple University. I spent a few days following around Dr. Michael Glick, who had started the IDC a year earlier. No one in the Philadelphia region was offering dental care to HIV patients at the time. Click and his staff were the only ones doing so that I had found at that time. Here are some archive images, from way back then.

Long before Teen Mom hit MTV screens, way back in 1989, while working for the Philadelphia Inquirer I spent a few days at William Tennent High School in Warminster, Pennsylvania making pictures of a program geared to keep Teen Moms in school. The school, and mostly, Centennial School District, set up a day care program so young women that had children while in high school could keep on attending school and get their diploma. It was pretty simple. The girls would drop of their child before classes started, then go to school. They could come back to visit the children any time during the day. Then would pick them up after school and in some cases, actually do their homework in the day care while waiting for the bus ride home.
Here are some of the images from the package I did in 1989. Images were shot with Tri-X film and probably pushed to 1600 ISO in most interiors with Nikon F3’s as camera of choice.
Last weekend I photographed the Odyssey of the Mind competition in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania at Pennsbury High School. The Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics.
The competitors solved problems with great presentations.
Here are some clips and the actual images from the event.
On Saturday I photographed and made a short video of a soldier returning from Afghanistan and surprised his family at Sesame Place.
Emma Davies is suffering from a rare hematological disease. She will be getting a bone marrow transplant from her older sister. With bills stacking up, a friend of the Davies family has set up an online fundraiser to help.
One day last week, I was invited to spend some time with the family and make pictures. You’d never know that this amazing child is ill.
I also made a video.
I made some nice images the other day of a little guy at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, Pennsylvania for his mom.

Met and photographed a lovely couple and their adorable daughter. I met the Defelice family at Tyler State Park in Newtown, Pennsylvania for a photo shoot. While the weather was excruciatingly humid, the baby and the family was cool. This enabled me to make some cute pix in the park. Check them out @ http://cainimages.photoshelter.com/gallery/Defelice/G00009NMIkFlIpzQ
Happy children and happy parents always make for good imagery.
Here are some of the pix.
Over the weekend I was looking through some old prints trying to find early work to show my advanced photo class. Lucky for me, I found this image that was probably one of the first portraits I’ve ever made. It’s of my cousin’s son on Thanksgiving sometime in the mid-80’s. If I recall correctly, we were all watching football, and Ricky was still at the table finishing his dinner. Made a few frames and captured a nice moment.
