Holiday Fun – Westchester Winter Wonderland…

Holiday Fun – Westchester Winter Wonderland…

Sometimes you really have to do something that is just plain fun.  The new Westchester Winter Wonderland was just such an event.  Located at the Kensico Dam, the location was very convenient for anyone in lower Westchester. I was there this evening and had fun taking a lot of photos […]

Poinsettias in the Greenhouse…

Poinsettias in the Greenhouse…

I took this photo last year at dusk in Carlson’s Greenhouse in White Plains.  There was something about the dark blue light coming into the greenhouse against the poinsettia plants that I really liked.   To me it was kind of symbolic of the winter solstice and the fact that […]

A cold night in later fall – downtown White Plains

A cold night in later fall – downtown White Plains

Managed to snap this photo just as the sun was going down.  I think I was about a half mile due south from Trump Tower at the time.    Trump is the high-rise on the far right.   The early evening was cold but the sky was particularly compelling with rich color […]

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 […]

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 […]

Downtown White Plains at dusk – the clock tower…

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 […]

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. […]

Scenes from winter – Philipsburg Manor

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 […]
