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 […]

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

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 […]

Had this feeling I was being watched….Dogs are so observant…

Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for dogs.  Total dog person here.  Many of the my readers have been treated (subjected) to numerous photos of my Siberian Huskies.  Usually dogs really take to me no matter what.  However, most dogs do have a protective nature with respect […]

Scenes from winter – Philipsburg Manor

The famous Philipsburg Manor located right across the road from the Old Dutch Church and the Headless Horseman Bridge….Since the manor is part of the Historic Hudson Valley, we don’t think about it in  terms of the dead of winter.  But here it is covered in snow.  I generally think […]
