New Year’s Eve with the FEC and TriRail 2

We have a ritual when we’re down here at my parent’s place in Florida – we make a morning trip to Einstein Bagels in Boca Raton, FL.  This fine New Year’s Eve morning, we left the kids with my parents and went out in search of trains after the bagel stop.  Well, I did the […]


Sunny Tuesday Morning NR-2 3

Another sunny, but cold morning today.  Not quite as windy as it had been, but still pretty cold.  And there’s still plenty of the white stuff on the ground to make things look all nice and pretty.  So I had to get out this morning and see if I could get some shots in.  Well, […]

NJ and PA at night 2
