Norton Point Shack

Norton Point was closed to drive-on traffic this 4th of July due to the nesting of the Plovers so the usually busy guard shack was abandoned. This was taken with my iPhone 7 Plus which I find to be an outstanding point and shoot camera.  I did a little B&W editing on my phone so what you see is 100% produced on the iPhone.

Light Houses of Martha’s Vineyard

One of my favorite experiences on Martha’s Vineyard is always a visit to the lighthouses of the island.  There is something magical and powerful about a lighthouse and their enduring strength that resists everything that Mother Nature throws at it in order to guide sailors safely home. These are two of my favorites.       The lighthouse at Gay Head is in danger…

Fortress wall of the Forbidden City

  A recent trip to Beijing resulted in a few hours to walk around the Forbidden City.  The smog was almost unbearable – I didn’t recover for weeks after returning to the US.  But, I did manage to capture a handful of images that I liked.  This one of the fortress wall around the Forbidden City is interesting.  I used Photoshop and Lightroom to…

Edgartown Harbor Storm – iPhone Art

Taken from the harbor on my iPhone while on a sailing trip around the island. The power and size of the storm is obvious when you compare the size of the un-landed tornado in the top right third of the image with the Edgartown Lighthouse below and to the left of it (its the little white speck).

Statue of Neptune on the fountain in Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy.

Statue of Neptune on the fountain on Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy. This was taken about midnight in the Piazza. It was one of those nights when everything seemed perfect – location, light, temperature and the energy in the Piazza.

There is nothing like black and white on the beach.

retired silo – chester, new york

The Warwick Valley has many old barns that are no longer in use. These artifacts reflect a lost age in rural farming in New York. Just a few decades ago every town in Upstate New York had several working dairy farms that served the locals and sold milk, butter and often cheese to the larger cities in New York and points south. I would…
