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, […]


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. […]


9/11 – A morning with my daughter and K667 1

On the morning of September 11th, I asked my daughters if they’d like to come out with me to shoot an ethanol train (OK, I didn’t say “ethanol” since they’re 5 and 7, and have no idea what ethanol is).  The older one said “naw, I want to stay with mommy,” but the little one […]


Two trains on the NECR 2

On the day after my birthday, September 10th, I headed out in the morning for a bit to shoot a little, despite the cloudy weather.  But as usual, I never let the weather conditions discourage me from shooting, and in fact, I think it helped in one case.


Happy birthday to me, three trains I did see 2

I decided to take the week of  Labor Day off from work, and that week coincidentally also contained my birthday (it was the 20th anniversary of my 21st birthday – doesn’t make me feel as old saying it that way).  And on that day, after Jill & I put the kids on the bus, we went for […]


PW NR2 and NECR (or is it FEC?) 608 with empty cans and a sub

August 27th – a Friday – graced us with some beautiful weather – and a half day at work for me.  That ended up translating into two trains and a submarine that crossed in front of my lens.  The odd thing was the power used on one of the trains – they were quite a […]


A week’s worth – Amtrak, NECR, PW, FEC and ethanol

Continuing on the backlog here – but instead of what I would normally do and make one post for each “outing,” instead I’m putting together one massive post with a week’s full of shots in it.  Basically taking care of pretty much the entire backlog in one fell swoop.  In this catch-all post, you’ll see […]


Fog, freight and empty moonshine jugs

Thursday the third of June started out with some pretty thick fog here in southeastern Connecticut.  And in that fog, a few trains rain – one regular job, and two extras.  As luck would have it, I managed to lens each of those – well, in one form or another.


The Sunday Chase – Freight, Frogs & Sand 4

I wasn’t planning on doing any chasing this weekend – we had a busy one planned.  Saturday we spent the day in New York at my cousin’s graduation party, and Sunday was to be a day of working around the house – most notably rototilling the garden.  Of course, plans usually change – and the Sunday plans […]
