NAN and the Super Moon

For today’s post, we’ll go back to the end of June when we as earthlings bore witness to the closest “super moon” of 2013 – or in more scientific terms the moon was at the perigee (closest to Earth) of its orbit while in the full phase.  Honestly, it’s nothing truly rare, despite the Internet […]

Acela at Sunset

March 8th NR-2

Yep, been tied up on many other things lately, so shooting time has been at a premium – never mind keeping the blog updated.  Things have been happening, though, so it’s not like everything is at a complete standstill.  I’ll be making another announcement soon about a gallery exhibit I’m participating in starting later this […]


Two trains of empty cans

Way back on June 8th I was able to get out and shoot a bit in the morning.  I intented to duck out and shoot Providence & Worcester train NR-2 along the Thames River.  But as things worked out, I ended up catching two P&W jobs in the Groton/New London area – both carrying empty […]


A bunch from June 2

Been a little while since I’ve posted anything from the railroad front.  So to start things flowing again, I figured I’d prime the pump – so to speak – with a bunch of shots from June.  Included here are a couple day’s worth of shots – one of Providence & Worcester train NR-2 and the […]


Lunch at Saybrook

Back on May 18th, I met up with a few other fans at the Old Saybrook Amtrak station over lunch for a little shooting & conversation.  Despite the cloudy weather (which never really bothered me), it was a good lunch hour of shooting from the station platforms.  And of course, it was nice catching up […]


January 2011 Recap

Holy crap does time fly when you’re doing nothing but shoveling snow.  Yep, we’ve been inundated with snow the past month or so here in the Northeast, and I have next to no photos to show for it!  But I did manage to get out a few times to shoot.  So instead of doing each one individually, […]


Start of December Stuff

Next up is a chunk of photos from the first half of December, which include Amtrak, Providence & Worcester, ethanol, a Sperry Rail Car, a couple C-130s and a pair of fast attack submarines – a Virginia and Los Angeles class.  Nice variety for the first half of the month.  And like the previous post, […]


End of November Stuff

I guess I’m quite a bit behind again.  So to catch things up, I’m just going to do a few posts that’ll bunch things together.  For the first of the house-clearing posts, here’s a few shots from the end of November.  Actually, it’s not everything from the end of November – it’ll be all but one outing. […]


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 […]
