Holy crap it was cold this morning. The wind didn’t help either, but there was abundant sunshine and glorious blue skies, so I couldn’t pass it up. Luckily, my schedule permitted me to get out for my walk. But things didn’t go as they usually do – I did end up catching the usual trains, […]
OK, no modesty here, quite simply I’m patting myself on the back. Just wanted to share that one of my photos was chosen to be on the Providence & Worcester Railroad’s holiday greetings card for the 2007 season! I just got a few copies in the mail, and it came out pretty nice! Now I […]
Looks like the New England Central Railroad has canceled a tradition in Monson & Palmer, MA. Each December the railroad would sponsor a Santa train that ran between the two towns, giving area kids rides and a chance to meet Santa himself. Looks like Rail America’s new owners, Fortress Investments, doesn’t think this is a […]
No, I’m not going to bore you with a treatise on what I think of the Thames River. Instead, I’m taking it quite literal today – actual reflections in the water. Along with the second day of crappy weather came next to no wind. And when there’s no wind, there’s no waves on the water. […]
As the rest of the state was getting their first snowfall of the season, down on the shore we got stuck with a mix of rain & sleet – well, honestly, it was mostly rain. One of the downfalls of being on the shoreline. But that didn’t keep me from heading out for a bit […]

Quite a bit to pack into the small amount of time I was out & about this morning. I was able to catch a Los Angeles class fast attack sub, Providence & Worcester train NR-2, an easbound Amtrak Acela, and a helicopter taking off from New London. And I even got my walk in there […]
Finally slogged through the 1,700 or so images I took way back on November 9th at Toad’s Place in New Haven. It was a benefit show that featured old friends Mighty Purple and Gargantua Soul, along with the Seth Adam Band, who also had a guest vocalist – Christine Ohlman.
Yep, you read that right. Short version – in a span of about 20 minutes, and without moving my ass more than 15 feet, I was able to catch the freighter Persenk unloading copper plates at the State Pier in New London, a pair of small US Coast Guard cutters (armed with machine guns on […]
Well, I was able to head out yesterday into the crappy weather we were having. I figured with the upcoming wind forecasted for the weekend, I didn’t have much time left with the color on the trees. So any weather would do. I set my sights on Mill Cove in Ledyard for the morning activities.
