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.


Thoughts on 10 Years of Nights 1

As I usually do, I kick many ideas around in my head – from ideas about potential photos, to reassessing the photos I’ve taken thus far.  Lately – well, over the past couple of years, at least – I’ve been thinking about my night shots quite a bit.  What do I like?  What don’t I […]


8th Annual CERM Night Photo Shoot

Over the past seven years, the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic has hosted a number of photographers from around the northeastern region for a night shoot.  This year was no different – both in the fact that the night shoot happened, but also that the event was very well attended, and sold out again. […]


Camera Club Night Shoot at CERM 2

As most of you know the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT does an annual night photo shoot, which usually occurs in late September.  But the night came alive in Willimantic on May 14th – well before the usual time for the shoot.  That Saturday night, the museum hosted the Shooters Gallery Photography Group, […]


Trackside with TRAINS.com #151

OK folks, the latest edition of Trackside with TRAINS.com is up on their site, and the subject this time around is something near and dear to my heart – NIGHT!  I submitted a shot from the CT Eastern RR Museum I took 4 years ago, and is probably my favorite night shot overall – this […]


CERM 7th Annual Night Photo Shoot 2

The Nights of 2009 7

Now that we’re safely nestled into the new year I normally pick out some of my favorite shots from the previous year (2008 & 2007 for example) as a kind of retrospective look at what I shot over the past 365.25 days.  This year I decided to narrow it down a bit to one subject I’ve […]


CERM Vandalism and Blacksmithing

Yesterday I headed down to the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum to check out the damage for myself (see this post for details on the vandalism).  Also, as I found out last minute there was a blacksmithing demonstration also occurring – so that would put a nice positive spin on things.  Plus, because of the vandalism, […]


Cowards 1

As quite a few of you may know, I’m a member and volunteer at the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT.  Well, last night (11/3/09) the museum was broken into and quite heavily vandalized.  Click here for the story, including some photos of the damage, from the Hartford Courant.  Shit like this just makes […]


A morning at CERM with Callie

Last Saturday, before the BSRM Night Photo Shoot, my older daughter had a birthday party to go to, so I had some one-on-one time with the little one.  Well, when she asked me to go take pictures of trains, I gladly obliged!  Since there wasn’t much going on around here, and we had to run […]
