Time-Lapse Photography – The sun sets on the Tappan Zee Bridge…

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! As the new bridge connecting Westchester to Rockland county emerges from under the Hudson, we know that the current skyline that we enjoy now will soon become a memory.  So let’s take another look […]

Time-Lapse Photography – A great way to brand yourself, your business or your neighborhood…

The above is my first real attempt at time-lapse photography.  Obviously not my best work and it barely scratches the surface of what can actually be done, but now that I know the basics, more artistic renderings will follow. Technically, the process involved mounting the camera on a tripod so […]

Brooklyn Grange Farm – Rooftop farming on a grand scale….

One of the things about living in Westchester is that NYC and all it has to offer is so very close.  Westchester may have Stone Barns, but NYC has Brooklyn Grange Farms.  Now when I say the “city” in this case I don’t mean Manhattan.  In this case, I mean […]

Walking the RiverWalk in Tarrytown NY…

I’m no youngster and as many  know, I’m Westchester NY born and bred.  One of the most wonderful revivals seen in my lifetime is that of the Hudson River.  I can remember a time when most of the Hudson riverfront was an industrial wasteland.  The …ahem…water seemed something closer to […]

Spring storms and golden sunlight…

Spring storms and golden sunlight…

This is something I shot casually as I was making my way through my day.  We had had a rain storm and the cloud cover was still a formidable force looking dark and ominous.  But the sun started to push  its way through the cloud cover.  Being late in the […]

Downtown White Plains at dusk – the clock tower…

The second in a series of photos I took in downtown White Plains at dusk.  Some things just have a different look at twilight.  The clock tower looks quite dramatic all lit up with the vibrant sunset in the background. I was somewhat lucky because I happened along at the […]

My Westchester NY landscapes are popping up in different places…

Sometimes opportunities come to you.  It doesn’t happen that often in these difficult times particularly in the realm of photography where I am constantly being reminded that good photographers are a dime a dozen.  However,  recently, I’ve had a few inquiries from commercial sources wanting to use my local photographs […]

An April Dusk – Downtown White Plains – 10601

An April Dusk – Downtown White Plains – 10601

As the bitter winter just past turns to spring, I have noticed the yearly changes in light. First of all, there is more of it.  The sun doesn’t go down before 6 PM and thanks to daylight savings, dusk is pushing towards 8 PM.  Truth be told – I love […]

A stitch in time – A wide-angle lens workaround for real estate photography…

The above is an example of a stitched photo.  It was the result of blending three separate shots.  I took it when construction on the new Tappan Zee Bridge was just starting and was trying to get one last photo of the original bridge before the work crews moved in. […]

Summer will come again…Riverfront Green Park – Peekskill NY

Summer will come again…Riverfront Green Park – Peekskill NY

Another day, another trip into the polar vortex.  At least we avoided the snow this time.  How cold is it?  Even my Siberian Huskies are not wanting to stay outside very long and this is supposed to be their kind of weather!  Jade and Tundra ran outside tonight, but they […]
