OK, I know, I’m behind on my posts. But I’m making it a point to catch up (thanks Rich!) and get up to date – trust me, the silence here doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shooting. To the contrary, I’ve actually been able to get out a surprising number of times. And to start [...]
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, [...]
Last week on the first of November I managed to catch New England Central train NERWNE (or #608 going by the old symbol) at a couple spots in southeastern Connecticut – first was with their usual freight in the late morning through Uncasville, and another with some ethanol in the evening light of Norwich bound [...]
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.
On September 7th, the Providence & Worcester Railroad ran an extra from Worcester, MA down to Groton, CT, and I managed to photograph it between Central Village and Groton, while running into a couple other photographers along the way. This is going to be one of the more vague posts, keeping some of the particulars [...]
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 [...]
Yep, it sure has been over two weeks since my last post. But don’t fret, I’ve been out shooting over that period of time. Granted, not as much as I would have liked, but I have been out there killing pixels. Here’s a quickie from a little while back on my trip home one afternoon.
On the last day of June, I took the day off to fix my car (emissions system was throwing a code, and the inspection was due). Once I fixed it, and had it tested for emissions (it passed), I decided to see if I could find any trains in the area to shoot. It was [...]
So I managed to get out a few times last week – including one night jaunt shooting both the Providence & Worcester and New England Central (both sporting “foreign” power). Other stuff from the week was the P&W and NECR in daylight – including an ethanol move, along with a couple Shore Line Amtrak runs.
