If you live on the east coast and  you take photos - you learn to work with high cloud cover and make it work for you.   Westchester NY is no different particularly if you are photographing something on the Hudson River or the Long Island Sound. This time I used HDR-lite  and allowed myself a bi...

Haven’t been posting as much lately because I have been very busy.  I’m still busy with clients and working hard generally, so getting to update the blog has taken a back seat. The weekend before last I took a rare day off to  help  a friend move from her upper east side apartment to the her new...

  One thing I keep hearing over and over again when I read about how people get great photos is simply – ALWAYS HAVE A CAMERA AVAILABLE!  Well, I really have to agree on that one.  On Sat., Sept 8, we had a big storm moving in.  I knew it was coming, but thought I had a while. In fact, I had a qu...

Last year there was a great deal of hoopla about the 10th anniversary of  the tragedy of 9/11.  The anniversary is always a time to reflect on what happened that day and all that has happened since.   This year was a bit different, Sept 11 seemed to appear almost by stealth. Of course none of us ...

It's been a week since the beginning of the Labor Day weekend and most of us are back to our old routines.  Although traditionally we celebrate New Year's in January, September seems to be a point of demarkation and renewal for most of us.  The summer is over, if you are a student, you are back ...

There are those who mock the importance of the public sector.  Often when they do, they take direct aim at institutions of knowledge such as our public libraries.   Personally, I don’t want to live in a world when a place where much of our collective knowledge is curated, cataloged and disseminat...

The picture I snapped of the NYC skyline from Irvington NY on a sultry summer night was taken to make a point.   New York City is becoming increasingly expensive.  Friends of mine looking to purchase or even just to rent tell me tales of  spiraling costs.  So what about considering a move to Wes...

A few months ago I wrote a blog at the request of the White Plains Beautification Foundation.  They were raising money for a new Cedar of Lebanon evergreen tree for the Holocaust Memorial Garden.   Although I’m very familiar with downtown White Plains, I had never actually seen the garden.   Loca...

One of the interesting things about living in Westchester NY is that you are surrounded by water views.  But when I think about vivid sunsets, I tend to think of the River Towns such as Dobbs Ferry, Irvington or Tarrytown for  a spectacular show.  On the eastern Sound Shore side of the county I e...
