Working Hard

on
While out looking for interesting things happening across town, I ran into Portalatin Elias who was tending to his flowering snowball bush in his front yard. Usually, I see this as a positive hard working person who has pride in their home and community-type of a photograph. Though the pride I found in Portalatin extended […] [Read More]

Living on the water

on
While covering a sewage spill at the beginning of May, I could not believe my luck. Not because of the sewage – that was pretty gross – but because I met Erika Lelievre. Erika, along with her husband and their daughter, live on a boat at Harbor House Marina. I admit I’ve always fantasized about […] [Read More]

Akira, the new Pop Sensation?

on
Not often do I get to meet a possible pop-sensation. Greenwich-based Electro-pop musician Akira, born Samson Rutkin, performed at ComicConn August 16.

While they were working hard, I got to spend some time in the sun photographing their class. My favorite image came when the junior lifeguards were just about to start practicing first aid […] [Read More]

Cal Ripken League baseball

on
Here are a few of my favorite frames from the Cal Ripken League 11 year-old state championship games I photographed recently.  Newtown made it to the championship game through the winner’s bracket and Danbury made it though the loser’s bracket – meaning that Newtown could clinch the championship with one win, but Danbury would have […] [Read More]

Rainbows

on
  Near the end of a busy day yesterday I was heartened to see a double rainbow outside our offices. The second rainbow is very faint and can be seen to the far left. It retreated faster than a leprechaun with his shoes on fire. Though I can report that I did not find a […] [Read More]
