NAN and the Super Moon

For today’s post, we’ll go back to the end of June when we as earthlings bore witness to the closest “super moon” of 2013 – or in more scientific terms the moon was at the perigee (closest to Earth) of its orbit while in the full phase.  Honestly, it’s nothing truly rare, despite the Internet […]

Getting back into the swing of things… 1

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 […]

March 8th NR-2

Yep, been tied up on many other things lately, so shooting time has been at a premium – never mind keeping the blog updated.  Things have been happening, though, so it’s not like everything is at a complete standstill.  I’ll be making another announcement soon about a gallery exhibit I’m participating in starting later this […]

Flowers, Stars & Trains 3

Last Friday was a pretty good day, photographically speaking.  I ended up taking the day off from work for a couple reasons – first, later in the evening I was putting on a presentation about the railroads along the Thames River for the Northeast Prototype Modeler’s Meet out in Collinsville, CT (BTW, if you’re a […]

Late morning at NAN

Back on May 10th, the weather was pretty good – some sun mixed with clouds – so I was considering going out and shooting a bit.  But with some early morning meetings, I thought I couldn’t make it.  Then I got a message that Amtrak had parked a pair of GP38s on the Ring’s End […]

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, […]

Clouds and Color on the 15th 1

Fall in New England brings plenty of cloudy days along with the changing color on the trees.  On Friday the 15th I managed to get out and shoot a bit, catching an Amtrak Acela, Northeast Regional and a work extra over lunch, then a New England Central ethanol extra later in the day.

Lunchtime in New Haven, Branford, Guilford and Niantic 5

I had taken Columbus Day off from work (we don’t get that as a holiday), and had planned on getting some things done around the house.  But the night before we had the neighbors over for a little bonfire and one of the conversations we had changed my plans completely.

From way back on Aug 2nd – PW and Amtrak 2

Yeah, it’s been a little while since the last update.  Actually, pretty close to a month!  As usual, things are just downright hectic at home and at work.  But I have been making a little time for shooting here and there.  Over the next week or so, I’ll be playing catch-up and posting stuff in […]

First day of June – PW and Amtrak 3

More of the same – behind a bit on the postings, and slowly catching up.  This one is from this past Tuesday, June 1st.  Managed to get Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at Fairview and later on at Niantic.  Also, while at Niantic, I managed to get a couple Amtraks – including a very late […]
