Using film…

A while back I took a vintage Nikon F4S for a walk on Ocean City’s boardwalk. I was thinking at the time that shooting with film requires a level of discipline that shooting digital does not. No auto ISO, no automatic bracketing and the prospect of paying to develop crappy pictures, returns photography to something Read More

Over the weekend….

I went out on Saturday and Sunday mornings and headed to the OC boardwalk, Wildwood and Villas to take some shots.  I think as the winter approaches, I’d like to focus on capturing as much of the “old shore” as I can. With all the development and the aftermath of Sandy, a lot of the Read More

Beautiful Fall Morning…

One of the great joys of taking pictures is rising early on a beautiful Fall morning and go, camera in hand, to wherever the road takes you. These shots were taken near Delaware Bay in Commercial Township NJ. Read More

New flowers and chairs around a familiar boat shed; an old crumbling house enhanced by the filtered morning sunlight or a Read More

Shellpile, NJ

I woke up early this morning and drove across to the Maurice River area. Oysters by the millions were once harvested along this section of the Delaware Bay estuary.

Some new images…

I drove over to the old train yard in Tuckahoe to take a few shots with the D800E. Impressive camera, enormous files size considering I’m working from an iPad Pro. Read More
