Looking at the list of photos on the web gallery here – something struck me as odd. I had no photos posted from the month of August. So I fired up Lightroom to see what I shot in the eighth month of the year, and much to my surprise, I only got out a couple [...]
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, [...]
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. [...]
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 [...]
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.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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.
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 [...]
