Happy New Year! 2018

Beach Scenes, Coastal Scenes

Wow, it’s been awhile! With the new year upon us I ventured over to my blog from many moons ago( Feb 2017 to be exact)…. maybe I’ll give it a whirl at writing and documenting my photography travels. Hope you check back to see where I’m going.

2018... Lets begin the Journey!

Happy New Year!

The Breadline…


The creative artistry present at the Grounds For Sculpture is mesmerizing. Around each turn in this beautiful outdoor exhibit is an experience that is never forgotten.

One such exhibit is the Depression Bread Line. Crafted by world renowned sculptor George Segal in 1999. Five men, cast in bronze, waiting for handouts…  Depicting a scene all too common during the Great Depression. This fascinating and thought provoking display is only one of hundreds scattered over this wonderful park.

Here are just a few photos to give you a sense of the significance of this piece….




I don’t know what took me so long to go to The Grounds for Sculpture. It is one of the most fascinating places I’ve ever been to and actually can’t wait to go back. I’m only sorry I went in the latter part of the fall season and have to wait so long for spring to capture more amazing shots. Stay tuned because I will be posting more on the blog shortly.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Please feel free to go over to my website for more of my work and the opportunity to purchase any of the photos over there…

Just Round The Corner

Coastal Scenes, Travel

During our vacation in South Carolina we all agreed to go on a catamaran to experience the sunset on the Calibogue Sound. We decided on a trip which would leave from the South Beach area of Hilton Head. We were excited to not only go on the cruise but also visit the famous Salty Dog Cafe. It turned out to be a great experience walking around this scenic area and then embarking on the cruise.

In addition to experiencing the southern sunset on the Calibogue Sound I’m really glad I pushed the shutter on this shot. This is a land mass that identifies the entrance to the sound. Not the most compelling shot but one that helps remember a fantastic experience….


So, do you have any photos that remind you of unforgettable family experiences. Would love to see them. Post link in the comment section.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Water, Water Everywhere….

Landscapes, Weather

I’m fortunate to live in an area of New Jersey where I have access to several beautiful bodies of water that are conducive to spectacular photographic opportunities. If I don’t want to go to the beach I have the Manasquan Reservoir as a more than formidable location for dramatic sunrise or sunsets.

On many a summer evening I can be seen often glancing over to the western sky looking for a late afternoon storm making it’s way across the state. On this given afternoon I could see the late summer weather pattern getting ready to create something dramatic. I grabbed my gear and made the 7 minute ride to the reservoir to capture the scene below.

Once again, the reservoir did not disappoint……


This shot looks incredible on Canon and Red River photo papers so contact me if you have interest in purchasing this or any other piece of art.

Thanks for stopping by!

10 Ways to Skin a Cat…

Black and White, Coastal Scenes

Being so close to the beach has many advantages. As a photographer I can be assured of interesting shots no matter what time of day, no matter what town I visit.

One of my favorite spots is the surf beach in Manasquan. It’s got so much going on: surfing(of course), boating, and fishing along the jetty.

On this early morning I was intrigued to see this gentleman fishing in such a peculiar fashion. No pole, no reel. Just a spool and some fishing line. Now I didn’t see him catch anything but I’m thinking there might be a struggle to reel in anything of substantial size.

The lighting was just perfect just after sunrise and I just knew these shots screamed for black and white. Lightroom comes through with some great conversions……




Being that we just had our first major snow storm of the season I hope these shots warm your soul.
