My favorite time of year for shooting photos is winter time – cold, crisp air with the pure white snow on the ground, matched with some of it clinging to the bare tree branches, and of course a train rolling through it, giving the scene that New England post card look. Well, today didn’t have […]
Today is a solemn day – the 8th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on New York, Washington DC & Shanksville, PA where so many lost their lives. I decided to observe the passing of the moment by going out and exercising my freedom to take photos of what I want, where I want, and […]
Finally, some summer-like weather is upon us, including bright blue sunny skies.
