Simple Clicks – Owego overlook

Allow me to present the town of Owego, NY, from earlier this autumn.  Owego is about 20 minutes west of Binghamton, where I went to university, and is one of my old haunts from those days.  Back then it had a really wonderful cafe, and great used bookstore, a art supply shop, and one of […]


Saturday Light – the harpist at Trostle

Only a week after my cold morning visit to Trostle Pond, I was back on a Thursday evening for a portrait session with Chelsea, the lovely harpist I met during The Vintage’s “24 Hours of Art” event this past summer.  I did a series of portraits of artists participating at the event, and had mentioned […]


Simple Clicks – Fog

    This isn’t a scene I would normally have photographed, and certainly not without the fog.  On its own this sweep of shoreline is a little distant, a little lacking in a truly interesting anchor.  But with the fog, that all changes – now we’ve got barely-discernible reflections through the mist, we’ve got a […]


Simple Clicks – can you see me?

  I’m in this photo.  Can you see me? I was traveling with friends this past weekend and am still playing catch-up, so unfortunately it’s going to be Simple Clicks for at least another posting day.  But hopefully then I’ll have some time to get into something in more details.  Don’t know what, but something… […]


Simple Clicks – Lackawanna Lake at dawn

  I’m standing along the shore at the fishing area at the north end of Lackawanna Lake, facing west with the marsh, and the South Branch of Tunkhannock Creek, just behind me.  It is dawn and it is frigging cold, much colder than I expected, much colder than I had dressed for.  When I left […]


Simple Clicks – goldenrod at sunrise

  Goldenrod at sunrise, intensely back-lit and glowing.  It’s one of those shots I just couldn’t resist taking, even if it is a little un-grounded in a compositional sense. I don’t know about where you live, but here in PA – and in NY and VT – goldenrod is prolific through the end of summer […]


Simple Clicks – maple leaves

  You know what’s funny?  I grew up in Vermont and never once tapped maple trees to make syrup.  I had a friend up the street who did it, and we took elementary school field trips to see how sugaring was done.  My mother and I even talked about doing it once or twice, as […]


Trostle Pond & thoughts on color and b&w

  Turns out I shot a lot of photos at Trostle Pond the other morning.  And I was going through them in post, I stumbled upon a situation where I couldn’t decide how I’d best like to see the final product.  For me it happens like this: an image comes up on the monitor and […]


Simple Clicks – dock at Bullhead Bay

  By now the dock has probably been pulled out of the water, too many cold nights and cool days upon us now, and the threat of ice is starting to become real – or will be in another couple of weeks, at least.  But in the meantime, it’s unlikely that too many people are […]


Simple Clicks – Great Egret

  For the past several weeks, Lackawanna State Park has been host to a lone Great Egret.  A large bird that’s somewhat like an all-white Great Blue Heron, they are neither natives of this area, nor frequent visitors.  In fact, the range maps for their species show PA as a migratory area, although both their […]
