Mother and Son

Mother and disabled child

This was taken in Managua, Nicaragua in one of the poorest slums in one of the poorest cities in the hemisphere. I was deeply moved by the love and tenderness of the mother toward her son who is severely disabled.


Spring is Yellow and Green


Cherry Blossoms Branch Brook Park April 2013

lace curtain

Cherry blossoms in Branch Brook Park popped out in the space of two or three days. It seems like they were waiting for a couple of warm days to herald spring.

Fall foliage 2012 The Palisades New Jersey


The Palisades are a line of 300 to 540 foot high cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southern New York. They are among the most dramatic geologic features in the vicinity of New York City, forming a 20 mile long canyon of the Hudson north of George Washington Bridge. Last Saturday, October 27, was a peak foliage day at the Greenbrook Conservancy in the New Jersey part of the Palisades. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and the lighting was not the best, but it did help bring out the spectacular  gold of the forest .

Sandy approaches– as seen from my upstairs window

11 a.m.  Sandy is now churning off the coast of Virginia somewhere and beginning to head toward the coast. It is not due to hit  Southern New Jersey for another 8 hours or so. I am in North Jersey out of the storm’s direct track and hundreds of miles away from the eye. Even so, winds are  35 mph and it is raining.  Since the entire state of New Jersey is shut down, including all rail and surface mass transit,  I am stuck inside. So, I did what any photographer would do. I took my camera and looked out my window.


A Rainy Day in Panamá

Bocas del Toro is an archipelago off the Caribbean coast of Panamá not too far from Costa Rica.  Bocas Town, on Isla Colon, is a funky town, only accessible  by boat from Almirante, Panamá  or  by air from Panamá City or  San Jose,  Costa Rica.  The primary tourist activities are aquatic sports and bar hopping.   It was  raining  heavily,  as it does most days in July,  and I was taking shelter from a downpour in a local watering hole  when I got out my camera.

For photographers in the group I was using a Canon G-1X with the ISO set at 12800 so I could shoot in ambient light.
