Getting back into the swing of things…

Hey everyone!  Yep, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here on the old blog.  But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting – just the opposite!  Granted, I’m not out every day like I have been in the past – life gets in the way much too easily these days – but [...]

The Houssy and Keystone Arch Trail

On Saturday November 6th we decided to take a ride to nowhere – no plans, no objective, just the four of us and a full tank of gas.  We figured we’d head northwest – the weather was supposed to be nicer out that way.  But even if it wasn’t we’d be out for a nice [...]

A few new angles for Amtrak and the NECR

Part two of my catchup posts involves some new angles I scouted out on Friday – one was in the morning on the New England Central, and two were in the afternoon on Amtrak’s Shore Line – one in Niantic, and one in Old Lyme.

Might be time to build an ark

Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to…well, I guess you could drink this if you really had to (apologies to Samuel Taylor Coleridge).  If you’re anywhere along the eastern US coast, you’ve been subjected to days and days of rain.  Well, all that rain, along with melting snow up north, is causing us some [...]

Melancholy Monday

Today was a dreary, foggy, drizzly Monday, and one that I thought I wouldn’t get a chance to head out.  Well, some things this morning happened sooner than I th0ught, and some other things happened later, making the cosmic convergence possible.  OK, not cosmic, but, well, you get my drift – things fell into place. [...]

Spring has sprung

Quick one tonight – actually the shot is from yesterday, the first day of spring.  The little one (Callie, age 5) called me over to see a crocus bloom in the yard yesterday before we went out for a ride.  So with it being the first bloom of the year, and the first day of [...]

1/1 Part One

New Year’s Day this year was spent cruising the Everglades in south Florida with the family.  Well, the daylight hours were spent down there.  We’ll get to the evening activities later.

Global warming, my ass!

Well, let’s see, it’s October 15th – n0t even Halloween yet.  But tonight we got our first snowfall – and I’m not talking about a couple flakes.  It was wet enough, and came down fast enough to accumulate a bit on the front lawn!  So I had to get a shot of it.

Sunflowers at Buttonwood Farm

Today my wife called me at the office about doing something after work today with the kids.  A friend of hers told her about a place out in Griswold, CT that literally acres and acres of sunflowers.  I figured it would be a nice cap to the day, so she made sandwiches and I met [...]

Rainbow at the house

Tonight we had to go out to a graduation party in Glastonbury, and drove through that nasty thunderstorm (the one that spawned the tornado warning for the Willimantic area).  We must have gone through close to the middle of it – wind, lightning, torrential rain and near golf ball sized hail.  Anyways, after the party [...]
