Taking Flight – A blue heron at the Rockefeller Preserve…

Sometimes you just get lucky.  The trip I made to  the Rockefeller Preserve about a week ago was my first in quite a long time.  Those of you who know me know that I have had a rough time with an ongoing ankle problem.  This has been rough because I […]

Bufflehead making waves – The Rockefeller Preserve

Bufflehead making waves – The Rockefeller Preserve

I’ve been struggling with a bout of bronchitis over the past few days.  The enforced “rest” has been frustrating…although productive in its own strange way.  I took the time to learn some new techniques on photoshop… Admittedly, I was working somewhat “passively” since I was really pretty miserable.   But […]

Victorian Charm & Fall Colors – Lyndhurst – Tarrytown NY

Victorian Charm & Fall Colors – Lyndhurst – Tarrytown NY

While touring the grounds of Lyndhurst the other day, I came across a Victorian cottage in a sea of golden light.  It was late afternoon  – or the so-called golden hour when the light has this wonderful golden glow.  The picture I saw in my head  was so characteristic of […]

Lyndhurst of Tarrytown – The Golden Hour…

Its the hour before sundown when the light has a golden hue that every photographer loves. The golden hour is particularly compelling during the fall.  This afternoon, I was lucky enough to be driving through Lyndhurst during the golden hour and I stopped with my camera to take a brief […]

Photographing the photographer….

I always find it interesting that often when I am trying to take a photo, others are also piling on board.  What I find compelling is that I am capturing a moment where someone else is capturing their own special moment…Of course it makes sense.  If you see something like […]

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

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 at the current view before it passes into history.

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 […]

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…

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 […]

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. […]
