Something for every taste.
Over the last several months, I’ve been returning to my hometown to take care of family—some of those images are here. But on the last trip (maybe the final one) I did not have my usual lens with me. It was a chance to use my mobile more. Saskatoon really is a lovely place, it’s just that, well, I was in a mood.
Had a terrific weekend in Dayton, Ohio May 17-19 2013 covering the annual "Hamvention" of amateur radio enthusiasts. There's a book in there—stay tuned for more details.
Greenport Yard, Greenport NY—the active railway link between The 'Fork and Brooklyn, and all point between. I often think the influx of tourists here is recent, due to the delectable bay-and-farm-to-table offerings, and curated publications like Edible East End and www.northfrkd.com (full disclosure, I photograph for the latter...) But Weekending has been a tradition in this neck of the woods for hundreds of years.
The ninety-four miles of railway track that links Brooklyn to Greenport was put into service in July, 1844. It was intended to be part of a system that would take passengers to the east end of Long Island by train, then by ferry to Stonington, CT, then again by train to Boston, MA—but the scheme never came to fruition. Instead, it allowed local industry in fishing and farming to flourish, and brought a steady flow of weekenders from the City to the North Fork.
