2014 Favorites

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 […]

2015 Calendar On Sale!

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 […]


One Night in Lansdale

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 […]

Self Portrait at Essex, Conn.

Here comes the judge…

On Tuesday November 18, 2014 I’ll be making a trek north to Pittsfield, Massachusetts to do something a bit different – something I’ve only done once before.  And that is to judge a photographic competition.  On that Tuesday evening, I will be the judge for the Berkshire Museum Camera Club‘s second digital and print competition […]


CERM’s 11th Annual Night Photo Shoot

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.

Nine Years Ago Today

As you can probably tell, I haven’t been able to head out and shoot much of late – for a number of reasons.  So instead of letting things further stagnate here, I decided to go back in time and dig out some older photos I took before I implemented the blog (first blog post is […]


A Night in North Conway 2

Between the end of June and the second week of July, my family and I took a (mostly) camping vacation through Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont – I’ll be doing an overview blog post on the entire 2+ week trip at some point in the future.  One of those stops was North Conway, New Hampshire […]

Dinner Train Cab Ride

To start off the month of June, I rode along with the Valley Railroad‘s Essex Clipper Dinner Train.  But not as a passenger enjoying the on-board dinner with my wife, as we usually do every summer.  Nope, instead I rode up in the head end with the engineer for the 2 1/2 hour ride from […]


Watching an EMD CF-7 Fuel Injector Swap 1

About a month ago I took a ride north to spend a little time on the Grafton & Upton Railroad in North Grafton, MA.  It was a rainy, gloomy early May day, so photos out on the road would be so-so – and the kind of rainy day that wouldn’t yield dramatic photos, just pretty boring, […]
