2012 Photo Recap – April to June

And we continue on with the 2012 photo recap, with this post moving onto the second quarter of 2012.  During this three month span the subjects ranged from the usual railroad photos, to submarines, a new bridge, a locomotive shop and a two-day photo charter.  So does that mean I’ll pick more photos?  Read on and find out…

First time with the 4005

The Providence & Worcester Railroad recently acquired three former Burlington Northern Santa Fe GE B40-8W locomotives.  One of those – now numbered P&W 4005 – has recently received a new paint job, putting the former warbonnet into P&W chocolate and orange.  And after one other trip down this way, I got a chance to photograph the widecab while on the point of train NR-2.

Freight, cargo, passengers and the Army

A couple weeks back on my way into work, I noticed a freighter sitting at the New London State Pier getting ready to unload.  I figured it was worth a shot to try and get out and get a few shots of the ship a little later that morning – it’s been a while since I’ve seen or shot a ship unloading at the pier.  And of course, I’d try to get some railroad action as well.  Well, I got that, and a bit more.

2011 Calendar – Steel Wheels & Submarines

It’s that time of year again – the 2011 calendar is ready!  This year’s calendar is titled “Steel Wheels and Submarines” and features 13 of my all color photos photos taken along the Thames River in southeastern Connecticut of the NECR, P&W, Amtrak and FEC (yes, I said FEC). I’m putting it out a bit earlier than I did last year, and giving you guys a chance to save a little money. If you purchase it before November 1st, you’ll get 10% off the regular price! Here’s a preview of the entire calendar. Purchase link should be part of the preview, and just in case you can’t see the preview, there’s a link below that which should bring you to the page over on Lulu.com (the publishing site).

Three days in September

Once again playing catchup with the posts – at least I’m only a couple weeks behind…  In this one I’m going to roll three days into one post – they’re not consecutive days, but rather are geographically connected.  And, yes, I’ll be brief on the words…

Iona Island on the way home

CSX Iona Island NYA couple weeks back, I had to take a short-notice work trip down to New Jersey (pictures from that trip are here).  But the different thing about this trip is I drove down, instead of my usual mode of transportation – the Acela.  So on the way home, I swung by Iona Island in Stony Point, NY for a bit.  Since it was over midday, the question became would I see a freight on the west side of the Hudson or not?

Steel Wheels and Submarines

Still playing catch-up, so here’s some stuff from last week.  Another busy week, so my ability to get out was limited.  Making the best of it, I headed up to the USS Nautilus Overlook Park in Groton a couple times, getting some shots of trains and submarines in the same frame.

NERWNE, NR2, 171 and a 688

Think the title is kinda cryptic, eh?  Pretty simple if you think about it – three trains and a submarine crossed by my lens on Tuesday morning.  Oh, yeah, and for a change, the sun was shining!

Wednesday – A train and a sub

OK, it’s Friday night, so I guess I can catch up.  I managed to get out a few times this past week to shoot a bit.  The weather was decent down here in southeastern Connecticut, so I took advantage of that.  This one is from this past Wednesday where I caught Providence & Worcester train NR-2, along with a US Navy submarine heading out to sea.

11 days into 2010 – my first shots back home

We got back home from Florida early last week, but because of things around the house, I didn’t get out to shoot at all.  This morning, though, I finally got a chance to head out, and bagged Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at a couple spots.  I also got some dredging along the Thames River channel on my way north to catch the P&W.
