Our family vacation brought us to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania this year, and our itinerary included some hiking, Amish culture, brewpubs, pretzels and of course a little touch of railroading. We spent a day around Strasburg, Pennsylvania visiting both the Strasburg Rail Road, as well as the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania – well, part of it anyway.
We’ll go back a couple months for this post – back to the start of June, where I headed over to the Valley Railroad shop in Essex, Connecticut over lunch. Why would I head there over lunch? Well, I received word that there was some activity on No. 97 – one of the Valley Railroad’s […]
Weather forecasts were calling for high temperatures approaching the 90s, coupled with fairly high humidity for Saturday July 30, 2016 – a pretty normal occurrence for mid-summer in southern New England. Instead of seeking out the comfort of an air conditioned space, I headed out to do a little shooting – in an even warmer environment, the cab […]
Two Thousand and Fifteen started out like most any other year for me – a busy schedule for the family/kids, a chock-full year at work, and lots of stuff in the ‘photo idea’ bin, coupled with some time to possibly take care of at least a few of those goals. Then February hit, and my world […]
As artists, we undeniably use other people’s work to stoke the creative fires inside our own imaginations.

Now that my first solo gallery exhibit, A Dozen Miles in a Decade, has opened at the Oliver Jensen Gallery at the Essex Steam Train in Essex, Connecticut, I can give you all some more details – including how to purchase prints online!
For this blog post, how about a quick peek into some of the work I’ve been doing to prepare for my upcoming gallery exhibit in Essex, Connecticut? I figured something different might be kind of refreshing here – instead of the usual photos of what comes out of my camera, we’d take a look behind the […]
For the past 8 or so years I’ve been exhibiting my photos in various art galleries around eastern Connecticut – whether as a part of a photo club group exhibit, supporting a special event at the gallery or splitting the bill with another photographer. The summer and fall of 2014 will bring a change in […]
Happy New Year everyone! To kick off 2013 I’m posting the final installment of my 2012 Photo Recap. This edition solely contains my night work on the Valley Railroad as they were running their hugely popular North Pole Express trains in the months of November and December. And to celebrate the new year, I’ve selected […]
