For the last two days I’ve been on the road a great deal in part for real estate and in part for photography.  I keep having the creepy feeling that the same storm just keeps following me around.  Taunting me as a drive.  It always seems to be ready to unleash its fury just as I have to get out o...

  A few days ago I read a blog by JMac on Active Rain  that really hit home.  Integrity…maybe the missing link in real estate…for everyone.    The post described how trust was something that had to be earned on both sides of a real estate transaction.  An agent needs to trust their client just as...

I was able to snap this shot of the Marymount “dome” early this afternoon while driving around the Tarrytown Lakes.  The dome is something of a landmark for the area and although the college campus has changed hands twice, the original campus buildings remain.   Even though I pass by the building...

Curb appeal is not a trivial issue.  Buyers often decide within seconds whether they have any interest in your home at all, and be it rational or not, that’s the reality. Let’s face it, between photographing homes and selling them, I spend a great deal of time looking at homes.  I spend a great d...

  The Watercooler at 21 North Broadway in Tarrytown NY, is a new hotspot for independent professionals as well as those who find themselves working from home.   It is the brainchild of Jennifer Ross who made Tarrytown’s famous 3rd Friday the success that it has become today.  Jennifer has a wonde...

Westchester NY  can be a bit like New York City in that you never really know what you are going to see.  I was on a very unassuming street in an almost industrial area.  Hardly the place one would expect to meet a vintage Packard.  But there it was – taking in the bright rays of the sun.    I ad...

  Here’s an idea for a unique mother’s day gift.   Hundreds of families are in real financial trouble.  Since they can barely put food on the table, the result is that they are often eating on the floor.  They can’t even afford the basics in terms of beds, tables, chairs etc.  That’s where the Fu...

  Carlson’s Floral and Gift at 625 Dobbs Ferry Road in White Plains always has wonderful arrangements for all seasons and occasions.  I was there shortly before Easter and though the offerings I have photos of are probably no longer  seasonal  I thought I would share them here as I somehow never ...

Early this evening I went in search of photos for a perigee moon.  Of course it was the optimist in me that actually made me believe that with all this cloud cover there might be a picture to take.   But alas, the moon could not been seen through the clouds.  In the end, I wound up on the Hudson ...

OK – so I admit that my low-light photography skills need some help – but tomorrow’s full Moon will be a “super Moon”.   Technically – its called a “perigee moon”.  Full moons vary in size because the moon has an elliptical orbit around the earth. When the moon’s orbit is at perigee it is 50,000 ...
