Thoughts on 10 Years of Nights

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 [...]

Getting back into the swing of things…

Hey everyone!  Yep, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here on the old blog.  But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting – just the opposite!  Granted, I’m not out every day like I have been in the past – life gets in the way much too easily these days – but [...]

2012 Photo Recap – October to December

Part four of my five post 2012 photo recap – and this one will cover the last three months of the year.  But wait, if this covers the last three months, what will the fifth installment include?  If you recall in my first recap post (here), I mentioned the last one will feature my night [...]

2012 Photo Recap – January to March

I usually do a monolithic recap of the previous year’s photos, but this year I decided to do things a bit differently – I’ll be splitting it up into five posts.  My main reasoning behind this is I’ve been a bit, um, behind in posting to the blog here.  So to start to make up [...]

P&W Willimantic Extra

On Friday March 30th, the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an extra from Worcester, MA to Willimantic, CT to handle the interchange traffic to and from the New England Central Railroad.  It turned out to be a very nice day, weather-wise, and with summer hours upon us here at work, I decided to take advantage [...]

Joint NECR/PW/CN Office Car Special

The New England Central, Providence & Worcester and Canadian National Railroads ran a joint office car special, wearing the symbol OCS-1, from St. Albans,VT to Worcester, MA on February 7, 2012.  The train consisted of equipment from all three railroads, and made only one stop in Palmer, MA to pick up a relief crew, and [...]

Office Car Special on the Providence & Worcester

Going a bit out of order with today’s post.  On October 19, 2011 the member railroads of the Green Mountain Gateway – Canadian Pacific, Vermont Rail System, New England Central and Providence & Worcester – ran an office car special between Rutland, VT and Worcester, MA.  The train, carrying VIPs from all the member railroads, [...]

The Lost Post from August

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 [...]

Digging back into May – NECR 608, ethanol and bruises

Well, here’s another batch of photos I never posted.  Actually, it was for good reason – it involves a bit of personal injury (both to my body and ego), flying cameras, as well as the temporary loss of my glasses.  But the important thing is this – despite risking life & limb (and cameras), I [...]

The Thames River is Dry

P&W K667 backs ethanol empties into the NECR in New London

Change – something that’s for the better.  Despite the fact that I instinctively abhor change, I do honestly believe in that in the end it is a good thing.  But I’m not here to talk about my personal philosophy – but rather how change relates [...]
