New York City

The Upper West Side – Our “river town” to the south…

Coming from Westchester and being a “Hudson River watcher” – I often find myself looking south towards the NYC skyline.  Westchester residents often look towards the easy commute as one of the biggest perks of living here.  But we often see ourselves as somewhat set apart from the city.  But […]

Winter….

There is no other way to put it: this has been a very rough winter.  I know that I am ready for spring.  Managing the snow and ice with my three dogs has been nothing short of awful as everything is an icy slippery mess. But winter has a beauty […]

Grace with grit – Washington Heights NYC…

Truth be told, I really like Washington Heights.  I had worked there at Presbyterian Hospital during the 90s and have a real affection for the area.  At that time, crime rates were sky-high, but nearly 20 years later, much has changed and I am happy to see the area that […]

Portrait of a Friend…a day in NYC…

I haven’t posted much in the way of portraits or head shots, though perhaps I should.  I took this one of a friend of mine that has just moved back to NYC from Europe.  It was one of those days in the late fall/early winter where the temperature didn’t know […]

My photography on display at Vintology of Scarsdale until Nov. 17…

Photography shows are fun for the photographer as well as the public.  It allows people to enjoy actual prints of the work rather than viewing them on a computer screen.  Since I started with digital photography online, it has always surprised me how images seem a bit more “alive” in […]

Photographing outdoor spaces in NYC

I was in NYC meeting a friend that had just moved back from Europe.  She was renting an apartment on the upper west side and was just in fact moving in.  The unit that she moved into actually had outdoor space.  Granted you had to go out through a low […]

The Hudson River & the Hudson Line….

The Hudson River & the Hudson Line….

You can’t think about the Hudson River without thinking about trains and train lines.  Trains and the lower Hudson Valley go hand in hand because the area is just a few miles from  the financial capital of the world.   For Westchester residents, trains are a way of life, and […]

The GW Bridge – A Washington Heights landmark…

In keeping with my Hudson River theme, I decided to seek out photographic opportunities from Manhattan. Taking this photo was like taking a walk back in time for me.    Back in the day when I was working as a molecular biologist, I did a 4-year stint at Presbyterian Hospital. […]

GW Bridge in Blue for Autism Awareness Day…

Here is a black and white version of the photo I took last night of the GW bridge that was lit up for Autism Awareness month.   Of course, I left the lights blue – and actually kept the water blue because it complemented the lights on the bridge.  So […]
