Starting in 2010, unit trains of ethanol began traversing the Green Mountain Gateway route – a cooperation between three railroads, the Vermont Rail System, New England Central Railroad and the Providence & Worcester Railroad. The trains were delivered by Canadian Pacific to VTR in Whiethall, New York and made their way over the three roads, […]
Our family vacation brought us to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania this year, and our itinerary included some hiking, Amish culture, brewpubs, pretzels and of course a little touch of railroading. We spent a day around Strasburg, Pennsylvania visiting both the Strasburg Rail Road, as well as the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania – well, part of it anyway.
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 […]
Two Thousand and Fifteen started out like most any other year for me – a busy schedule for the family/kids, a chock-full year at work, and lots of stuff in the ‘photo idea’ bin, coupled with some time to possibly take care of at least a few of those goals. Then February hit, and my world […]
Let’s jump into the (not-so) wayback machine for a moment today, and go back exactly nine years ago – to December 4, 2006 (and about the same time as I’m posting this), where I had a pretty unique photographic opportunity. Something unusual happened on the New England Central Railroad in Mansfield, Connecticut, and I would […]
As artists, we undeniably use other people’s work to stoke the creative fires inside our own imaginations. Whether it’s re-making a photo that has been done before, taking pieces from multiple works and mashing them together into something of your own or just using it as motivation to move in a different direction, it’s all […]
New Year’s Eve 2014 – a time to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments – of course, in the context of the good old blog here, that would be looking at things photographically speaking. Well, 2014 was a light year for me in the photographic realm – only getting out to shoot about 40 times […]
As the winter months approach, we start thinking about the coming New Year. Along with the holiday celebrations, it’s time to get a new calendar to hang on the wall! After a few years’ hiatus, there’s a 2015 calendar available with a year’s worth of my photographs – but this is something that I only […]
Last week I was in New Jersey for work, and one day I had to head down to the Collegeville, PA office. Not having much time for shooting on this trip, I figured the trip back from the Keystone State provided an opportunity to get a little shooting in – even if it was only […]
On October 4, 2014 the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, Connecticut continued a tradition spanning more than a decade. For the 11th year in a row, the museum hosted a Night Photo Shoot where a group of photographers from around the area converged on the museum to light up the night.
