Vermont with film…

  On our recent Vermont trip I shot both digital and film. As is the case most times, the film version provides a better image, though it might not be that noticeable in low res on a screen. The clarity, contrast and detail of a medium format negative scanned in high-res format is without parallel Read More

An Early Mud Season in Vermont…

I’m sure winter isn’t through with southern Vermont yet this year, but you wouldn’t know it by the weather we had over this past weekend. No snow, no cold and intermittent light rain throughout the weekend. I figured it would be a good time to focus on the grittier, less glamourous scenery in Vermont, a Read More


One of the things I try to do whenever I’m out taking pictures is to use film as well as digital. I’ve been using The Darkroom in San Clemente CA for developing and scanning recently. They do a great job and aren’t prohibitively expensive. These photos were taken with my trusty Mamiya 6 using Kodak Read More


We got a chance to get away for a few days to one of our favorite spots, Newcastle, Maine. I shot at some new locations this time around, Port Clyde, Tenants Harbor as well as familiar spots like Pemaquid and the Boothbay Harbor region. Maine never fails to impress, with something new pretty much around Read More

Sunrise at Pemaquid Point and New Harbor

Though I’ve shot this lighthouse many times before, it’s always a beautiful place to be at sunrise on a gorgeous day like this one. A number of fellow photographers had the same idea. On the way back to the inn I stopped by New Harbor for a few shots as well.         Read More

Ft. Jefferson, The Dry Tortugas National Park

The wind didn’t ground us yesterday and the flight out and back was awesome.  There’s something about flying in a seaplane 500 feet above azure waters, looking at wrecks and sea life. I love seaplanes… I shot four rolls of film and took a few digital snaps to share. The wind at the fort was Read More

Thinking about palm trees…..

…and orchids. So far this winter has been a challenge in the northeast. I’m sure we’re not through yet. And as peaceful and beautiful as new fallen snow can be, once it lingers a while it’s ugly, dirty and tiresome. There are lot of orchids in Key West. Next month… 🙂 Read More


It’s pronounced “Sconset”. How do I describe this place? There are places we’ve been that sometimes you just stand there in awe of how beautiful they are. The Grand North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the sunset in Big Sur, morning in the Sonoma vineyards, sometimes the beauty can bring tears to you eyes. Sconset Read More

Beautiful Nantucket…Day One.

We got into town yesterday afternoon. The hour-long ferry from Hyannis was an easy trip and with the aid of a cab ride we made it to The Century House, our home for the next couple of days. After settling in we headed out to dinner at an amazing place called Topper’s in Wawinet, eight Read More
