My Top 12 of ’13

First off, I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.  Hopefully everyone had a safe and joyous Christmas and holiday season.  And to kick off the new year, I figured I’d pull together a recap of my 2013 photographic ramblings along the rails of the northeast – well, one favorite from each […]

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 […]

2012 Photo Recap – January to March 1

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 […]

Magazine Articles, Slide Scans and the Train Show

Busy times lately – both at work and at home.  But I figured it was time for a quick blog post to stir things up a bit and let you all know where things are.  First off, you’ll see my work – both photos and writing – in a couple magazines’ March 2012 issues, one […]

9/9 – a PanAm birthday 3

With September 9th (otherwise known as my birthday) being a Friday this year, I took the day off with the intent of going out and shooting for most of the day.  Jill was at work, and the kids were in school, so I could have the bulk of the day to spend with my cameras.  The […]

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 […]

Tuesday night scan-o-rama 2

I was out sick again today, and there wasn’t much on TV, so no movie reviews tonight.  But since I’m feeling better tonight, I decided to scan through some of my “reject” folders of slides.  I, unlike some other photographers, rarely throw away slides – I keep everything (unless it’s truly out of focus).  And […]

A couple slide scans – Guilford & FEC 2

I didn’t get a chance to head out today – kinda swamped at work.  So instead of not posting anything, I took a break from the Olympics and scanned a couple slides in.  At least we’ll keep things somewhat fresh here…granted the pictures are at least 6 years old…

The Nights of 2009 7

Now that we’re safely nestled into the new year I normally pick out some of my favorite shots from the previous year (2008 & 2007 for example) as a kind of retrospective look at what I shot over the past 365.25 days.  This year I decided to narrow it down a bit to one subject I’ve […]

PanAm Under The Stars 5

I had made plans with Nick Palazini to try and do a little shooting along PanAm Railway’s District 3 and 4 on Saturday night.  Hopefully we would catch something along the way.  Our plans started out as meeting up at East Deerfield and playing it by ear from there.  Of course, things changed – as […]
