Photos From Our Viewers

Francis L. Mercuri shares with us his love of photography.

These photos were submitted by Kings Park resident Francis L. Mercuri who says that photography is a hobby he has had since his early years.

He returned to his love of taking pictures after retirement at 69 years old and began using digital photography when he was 70.

Mercuri told Patch that he believes that seniors should pursue their hobbies as long as they have their health and enjoy their retirement.

Mercuri has traveled extensively throughout the United States, all by car, which he says is the best way to see the country.

Here are some photos from Kings Park, eastern Long Island and around the country.

Thanks Linda. The bird is a chick-a-dee photographed at the Elizabeth Norton preserve in Sag Harbor. The hand belongs ot Vi my wife who is holding seeds. This bird is a shy fast bird and you need to be alert with a fast shutter like action shots and a distance for a telephoto.

To all that asked to use my sunsets (Bluff KP) as a desktop- YES PLEASE enjoy the view! Thank you very much. I know nothing about photography, but like Frank, I have been out there recording what I see. Sorry about putting on Frank's site, but I couldn't find a way to add as mine alone. All these photos and many more are on my FB, but no one really commented there, sadly. So once AGAIN- PATCH.com is the PLACE TO BE! Bernadette Piccione
