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 […]

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 […]

Building the New Tappen Zee Bridge…Heading Home after a long day…

Every couple of weeks, I find myself on the RiverWalk in Tarrytown or Sleepy Hollow looking towards the work being done on the new Tappan Zee Bridge.  Every morning work crews depart from Hudson Harbor and head out to work on the multi-year project that will result in a new […]

Lighthouse Landing – Some things just look better in black and white

Almost every shutterbug in Westchester NY takes photos of Lighthouse Landing in Sleepy Hollow at some point in their lives.  One can’t argue that there is a dearth of photos on this particular subject.  I guess I’m no exception to the rule because I have quite a few photos of […]

Can two photos of the same subject be entirely different? Yes!

Happy 4th of July – Fireworks Display from Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow NY

Happy 4th of July – Fireworks Display from Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow NY

Fireworks are really fun to photograph, if you know what you are doing.  Personally, I love taking photos of fireworks on the water because you get the added benefit of the water reflection which seems to make them extra special.  Sister villages Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow joined forces once again […]

Lenten Contemplation…
