August usually brings hot and humid weather to southern New England. Along with that, the month also brings one of the first country fairs of the season – the one in my hometown of Lebanon, Connecticut. On August 12-14, 2016, the 57th Lebanon Country Fair happened – and that weekend would bring heat indices well over […]
Let’s go down a different path for a moment. Sure, my main focus, pardon the pun, is railroad photography. But I do enjoy expanding my horizons – and this past weekend an event that I attended with my wife and daughters gave me that opportunity to do something different. Photograph people.
Over the summers here in Lebanon, the town library (Jonathan Trumbull Library) usually has events for the kids every week, ranging from crafts to movies to animal demonstrations to performers. This week’s act needed a little larger venue to perform some of his act – since it involved sharp objects and fire. So instead of […]
I had the pleasure of being invited to the Connecticut Southern Railroad’s Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting ceremony for their new offices and locomotive/car shops in Hartford, CT on April 5, 2012 – not only as a guest, but also as a photographer. And with a lunch from Black Eyed Sally’s included, how could I […]
In the immortal words of John Cleese – And now for something completely different. OK, not really completely different – I have shot this sport before. But it’s something that I don’t get out all that often to shoot – Cowboy Mounted Shooting. A couple weeks ago Jill, the girls & I headed up to […]
On September 18th we headed up to Somers, CT to attend the Four Town Fair – one of the better smaller country fairs in this part of the state. Plus this fair hosts one of my favorite events to photograph – cowboy mounted shooting, something that combines horseback riding and guns. Oh, yeah, and they […]
Back on the 12th of September we met up with my parents, my sister and her family at the Coventry Farmer’s Market, which is held down on the Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry, CT. When we left the house, we were expecting a typical farmer’s market (like the one here in Lebanon). When we got […]
Still catching up on the backlog of photos. Here we go back to August 8th when we went to the Lebanon Lions’ 51st annual Lebanon Country Fair here in town. This year we were only able to get down there for Sunday (we normally go all three days since we live only a couple miles […]
This past Saturday, we took a ride down the road to the Lebanon Farmer’s Market at the town hall. Our goal was to get some fresh zucchini, and check things out. Oh, yeah, and the girls were adamant about jumping around in the bouncy-house.
This past weekend we went to the Four Town Fair in Somers, CT for some of the usual fair stuff – rides, food, animals and of course beer. But the Four Town Fair has something else to offer – a Cowboy Mounted Shooting demonstration put on by the Connecticut Renegades, a CMS team from north-central […]
