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 […]

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 […]

Boat In a Storm….

Boat In a Storm….

This photo was taken before one of the many storms we had in the late summer of 2012.  It was about to pour but the sunlight was peeking through the heavy rolling cloud cover.  The boat on the Hudson River looked very small and vulnerable.  This was one of those […]

Dusk on the Irvington Waterfront – Irvington NY  (B&W version)

Dusk on the Irvington Waterfront – Irvington NY (B&W version)

A scene from early summer 2012.  The storm clouds were clearing and the water was finally calm.  Those lucky enough to own sailboats were taking full advantage of the view and the nice weather.  This was taken from the Irvington waterfront.   As a general rule, sunsets should be shot […]

Cloud Cover and the NYC Skyline….from Irvington NY

Cloud Cover and the NYC Skyline….from Irvington NY

Sometimes stormy weather has a beauty all its own.  Besides, these days if I  waited for a clear day, I would almost never actually shoot anything.  Waiting for the rain and cloud cover to clear is like trying to wait for hell to freeze over – not happening anytime soon. […]

Reclaiming the Riverfront- Former industrial sites go upscale – Irvington NY

Reclaiming the Riverfront- Former industrial sites go upscale – Irvington NY

Local color is always interesting.  Having lived in one place for most of one’s life, you ge to see the changes that take place over time.  When I was little, the Hudson River belonged to industry.  Industry dominated the riverfront.  Most famously in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow you had the […]

Rolling Storm Clouds on the Hudson River – Irvington NY

Rolling Storm Clouds on the Hudson River – Irvington NY

If you live in the north-east and you take photos – you learn to work with high cloud cover and make it work for you.   Westchester NY is no different particularly if you are photographing something on the Hudson River or the Long Island Sound. This time I used […]

The Irvington Library – Musings on the importance of public libraries in our lives and community….

There are those that say that libraries are no longer “important”.  Personally, I don’t want to live in a world when a place where much of our collective knowledge is curated, cataloged and disseminated is considered unimportant.  Perhaps we don’t “go to the library” as much as we used to, […]

Living in Westchester NY – The borough in the burbs

Living in Westchester NY – The borough in the burbs

In truth, I can not claim credit for that turn of phrase “the borough in the burbs.”  My father coined it explaining why he chose to live in Larchmont NY for 27 years rather than in Manhattan itself.  He would say – “you really can’t beat Larchmont (insert any town/village […]
