Architectural Detail – Westchester NY has a lot to offer if you just look up….

Truth be told, I am a fan of older architecture.  Whether it be a private house, or a building in a village or in the downtown area of a city, nothing modern can truly compare with the grace and detail of something built before World War II.  In those days […]

Tarrytown NY before the storm….

One of the functions of a Westchester photographer is to provide snapshots about our area at a given point in time.  What were the conditions in 2012?  What was the weather like?  What did the sky look like as carbon emissions warm the planet?  Thanks to climate change, New York […]
