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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Brooklyn Grange Farm – Rooftop farming on a grand scale….

One of the things about living in Westchester is that NYC and all it has to offer is so very close.  Westchester may have Stone Barns, but NYC has Brooklyn Grange Farms.  Now when I say the “city” in this case I don’t mean Manhattan.  In this case, I mean […]

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 […]
