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 of the area, but this fire show wa...
Some homes have amazing entry areas while others have spectacular architectural features in spite of a rather uninspiring entry. This is a case of "when you've got it, flaunt it!" An impressive entry should always be photographed with care. As a general rule, I take a large formal entry from seve...
When buyers look at a condo or cooperative complex, they are buying more than the unit, they are buying the lifestyle.  How the common areas are presented online and in brochures can really have an impact on overall interest.   Naturally, if your buyer craves a sleek modern look, the ornate detai...
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 that makes good sense...

Almost every shutterbug in Westchester NY takes photos of Lighthouse Landing in Sleepy Hollow at some point in their lives.  One can't argue that there is a dearth of photos on this particular subject.  I guess I'm no exception to the rule because I have quite a few photos of the Lighthouse Landi...
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.  This was in the Dar...
Recently I  was working on a project that had me taking quite a few photos of the same or similar subjects.   In one case, I was trying to capture the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse with the old Tappan Zee Bridge in the background.  The photo above was the second attempt at the same subject and below i...
Lately I've been taking a lot of photos along the Hudson River.  The sheer concentration on the Hudson River was due in part to a client who had some very specific requests with the Hudson River as the subject.  The process  of such a focussed effort drew my attention to the fact that no two phot...
Fireworks are really fun to photograph, if you know what you are doing.  Personally, I love taking photos of fireworks on the water because you get the added benefit of the water reflection which seems to make them extra special.  Sister villages Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow joined forces once aga...
