Serenity

on
In search of photos today, I remembered that the town of Fairfield opens up the beaches to horses and dogs at the start of October each year. Beautiful weather, following yesterday’s rain, and the opening weekend of the month pretty much guaranteed plenty of subject matter. Penfield Beach did not disappoint. [Read More]

High Flying

on
Not everyone wants their picture taken. I get it. I try to be persuasive but not pushy. So when I was out shooting standalone art the other day, it didn’t bother me when the parent of the kid I photographed didn’t want his son in the paper. I just kept scanning the scene for another […] [Read More]

A ‘Mad Men-era’ look at the bar car

on
The bar car is no more as Metro-North did away with the practice through attrition this year, but in recent years it was not what it once was. Maybe that’s a good thing.
