Time-Lapse Photography – A great way to brand yourself, your business or your neighborhood…

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 […]

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. […]

Summer will come again…Riverfront Green Park – Peekskill NY

Another day, another trip into the polar vortex.  At least we avoided the snow this time.  How cold is it?  Even my Siberian Huskies are not wanting to stay outside very long and this is supposed to be their kind of weather!  Jade and Tundra ran outside tonight, but they […]

Grace with grit – Washington Heights NYC…

Truth be told, I really like Washington Heights.  I had worked there at Presbyterian Hospital during the 90s and have a real affection for the area.  At that time, crime rates were sky-high, but nearly 20 years later, much has changed and I am happy to see the area that […]

Fire in the sky – Peekskill NY

This photo was taken at Riverfront Green Park right by the train station in Peekskill NY.  I visited the park a couple of times during the summer to and decided to try to capture the late afternoon into early evening light.  In the end, I took quite a few photos […]

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 […]

The GW Bridge – A Washington Heights landmark…

In keeping with my Hudson River theme, I decided to seek out photographic opportunities from Manhattan. Taking this photo was like taking a walk back in time for me.    Back in the day when I was working as a molecular biologist, I did a 4-year stint at Presbyterian Hospital. […]
