Today being a company holiday, I had the day off from work. And with the weather geeks calling for a significant snowfall last night and into this morning, I figured I might be able to get out in the pre-dawn hours and get up to Plainfield to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 and chase […]
Today was a bit different than usual – not only was it sunny and above freezing, but I had some visitors on my usual photography jaunt – a few folks from the Ocean State decided to shoot the Providence & Worcester along the Norwich Branch. They started the day in Plainfield, and we met up […]
Rain, mist & fog. Not the best atmosphere for photography, well, unless you want the photos to have atmosphere. So I decided to head out despite the light drizzle falling amongst the low hanging clouds. My aim was Mill Cove in Ledyard to hopefully catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 on their way south. Time […]
To all you Canadian readers out there – happy Boxing Day! Unfortunately, its not a holiday here in the States, so I had to drag my ass into work this morning. Oh, well – with most folks taking the rest of the week off, work would be light, and I’d be able to get out […]
Yeah, the year isn’t officially over yet, but I figured I should do this now…here’s my favorite images from 2007. They may not be the best, but they’re some of my favorites I’ve committed to film or CMOS over the past year. They’re roughly in chronological order from the beginning of the year to now. […]
This past Saturday morning (12/22/07), an extra was called by the Providence & Worcester from Plainfield to Willimantic, CT with some interchange traffic for the New England Central. So I headed up to Plainfield in the pre-dawn hours to meet up with friend and fellow photographer Bob LaMay for a morning of chasing trains and […]
Well, Friday I looked at the weather – cloudy but cold. OK, that would work. So I took a half vacation day from work and headed to Essex, CT. The Valley Railroad (aka Essex Steam Train) was running a pair of Santa Specials for the kids. They get to ride with Santa to Chester and […]
Well, I guess I jinxed myself yesterday when I said that it seemed Providence & Worcester train NR-2 was settling back into their normal schedule. I got out a bit late, but nothing out of the ordinary, so I figured I’d at least be able to catch NR-2 at the Nautilus. Short answer – Nope.
It’s looking like Providence & Worcester train NR-2 is settling back into their regular “schedule.” But of course, with that bit of return to normalcy, a bit of the unforeseen crept in. But of course, the unexpected is often times a good thing. This time wouldn’t be any different.
Well, at the Windham Photography Club meeting last night, I got a little bonus. I submitted a print of the Plainfield, CT Providence & Worcester diamond (see below) into one of the NECCC (New England Camera Club Council) interclub print competitions. It ended up getting a 2nd place ribbon! Also, since it placed, I can […]
