Dawn at Bethlehem

Digging into the photos from this last fall for this post – like I’ve mentioned in other posts before, I have been out shooting, just not as often as I used to, and unfortunately I haven’t been posting here much.  So for the next few blog posts, I’ll be reaching back into 2013 for material […]

My Top 12 of ’13

First off, I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.  Hopefully everyone had a safe and joyous Christmas and holiday season.  And to kick off the new year, I figured I’d pull together a recap of my 2013 photographic ramblings along the rails of the northeast – well, one favorite from each […]

Two Weeks in NJ – Week 1 1

The last couple weeks of September brought me back to northern New Jersey for work again, and of course I managed to get out and shoot a bit.  I visited some of my usual haunts – both in daylight and under cover of darkness, as well as added a couple of others spots – including […]

Lightning, the CP and a blast furnace in the rain

My final outing on my New Jersey business trip (part one – part two) brought me once again into the Keystone State.  But this time things didn’t go as smoothly, train wise.  But overall, I think it worked out rather well, despite not catching a single train moving in my 3 or so hours in […]

New Jersey June – Part II

And on to part 2 of three of my last business trip to New Jersey.  For this one, the shots were taken on one day – some in the morning before work, and some in the evening after work.  And for this one, I covered both the Garden and Keystone States, getting Norfolk Southern action […]

Trip wrap up – NJ and PA photos

Last week I was down in New Jersey again for work, and as has been my usual practice, the cameras and Lumedyne have come along for the ride.  Instead of doing a post for each time I went out to shoot, I’m just going to roll everything up into one post…easier that way.

NJ Day 4 – NS in Phillipsburg, NJ and Bethlehem, PA 1

Yesterday was another less than stellar weather day.  But like usual, that doesn’t stop me from going out to shoot when I can.  After work I decided to head west to a new spot for me – Phillipsburg, NJ, which is home to the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians‘ museum near the former CNJ PU Tower.  From […]

NJ Day 2 – A trip to Bethlehem 2

Tuesday actually had some sunshine to work with.  So after work, I decided to head west to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and see what I could see around the old Bethlehem Steel plant on the Lehigh Line.  As things worked out, I caught a couple trains there, as well as shot a couple pictures of the new […]

Heading West 2

Last night after work and after I checked into the hotel, I was thinking about where I wanted to go an shoot.  Northern New Jersey was graced with blue, cloudless skies, and a sun that was setting a little after 7PM.  Where could I go to take advantage of this nearly perfect golden hour light?  […]
