Chicago Blows And Other Strange Tales

They don’t call Chicago the windy city as in “wow, it’s really calm here” you know, like calling the fat guy “slim” – Nope that’s not why. It’s because it’s near-gale-force blowing most of the time I was here! But I love Chicago; the architectural showcase of America. My goal was simple, eat good food, […]

Greenland. The World’s Largest Island.

Day One. Leaving Iceland behind on a small commuter jet and heading westerly two time-zones and northerly up towards the arctic circle, we land at Kulusuk Airport. Miniscule by comparison to any other airport I’ve visited, it has a small gift shop where you can buy fur pelts and chocolate bars. Leaving the airport was another […]

A Day in Reykjavik, Iceland

The Icelandic coast is beautiful for sure, but the European City of Reykjavik has many treasures to be explored, the Solfar Sun Voyager sits right on the city waterfront, making the spot where Vikings claim to have discovered and claimed Iceland for their own. It’s the middle of August, hot as hell back home in […]

The Brimfield, MA Flea Market

Truthfully, I am not a fan of antiques. I don’t particularly enjoy walking through hundreds and hundreds of musty old furniture exhibits stretching for dozens of blocks while trying to stay cool in the 90-degree heat. For me, it was searching to find the few crafts and curio’s I thought were worth a photo. Brimfield has […]

Jordan Revisited

Every so often, I will browse a catalog of my photos years after I made them. Last week I chose to revisit my 2012 trip to Jordan in the middle east. Besides the wonderful memories of the weeks I was away, I actually found several images I had skipped over and never processed when I […]

Marlborough, MA Car Show

Not everyone appreciates old cars. Truth is, they are a pain to take care of and not so much fun to drive. They can be rough, uncomfortable and loud. But there’s no denying their place in history as a barometer of the styles and technology of their time. In the American car culture, there were […]

Big Bend, Texas and the Lizard

Lizards are native to the Texas desert, I’m not. I’m native to Brooklyn, NY. So what’s this Brooklyn transplant to Boston, doing wandering the desert in the middle of the winter? It’s hot out here. I know, but I just wanted to see The Lizard. The story goes that a giant Lizard lives west of […]

Flying Over Scusset Beach, MA

There is something so magical about flying. All my life I’ve been fascinated with flight. As kids, we used to love flying fireworks that zoomed up into the air. I used to make believe I could see through the eyes of birds so I could see what they could see. So when the DJI Phantom […]

Review of Intensify CK

I have to admit; I am very impressed with the MacPhun product line. Their applications are well designed with a simple user interface and I can create some unique effects that I cannot create in Lightroom.  I find myself using their “Creative Kit” now for enhancing more than a few of my favorite images. Today, I […]

Review of Aurora Pro HDR

Iceland is a mysterious place of land and sea, light and dark, ice and fire. Today’s review of Aurora Pro started in February 2014 while walking along the coast in the town of Hofn while staying at the Hali Hotel. It was cold standing there as I watched the remnants of the sunset to the west. […]
