Women at War - Poster shoot

Well, no images to post just yet .. The exhibit aboard Intrepid to commememorate Women's Month won't be held until March, 2011.  But today I had the pleasure of photographing 10 wonderful, archival posters from World Wars I and II which feature women in the military.  With pointed messages, vibrant colors, and beautiful models, these posters are really works of art, every one of them.  Stay tuned 'til next year when I can post them to the blog.

Cool photo for a hot day

Ninety nine degrees here today, with humidity to spare.  So I shot a cool photo for a very hot late afternoon, a trick learned from the "master of exposure", Bryan Peterson.   I'm very pleased with my new Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 VRII lens ... so crisp!  (Click on photo to enlarge).

Firefighter Appreciation on Intrepid

"Fire" and "heat" were the key words for this weekend's celebration of area Firefighters aboard Intrepid.  But high temps did not stop the crowds from enjoying numerous demonstrations and expressing support for New York's Bravest.  The newly commissioned fire boat, the Three Forty Three, in honor of the 343 Firefighters lost on 9/11, was open for tours after leading other fire boats up the Hudson River earlier in the day.  For story and gallery link to more photos, click here.

Maine: The Way Life Should Be

Ah, such beautiful light up in Maine!  Here are some shots taken on Peaks Island, a 20-minute ferry ride from Portland.  Sunsets and sunrises can be spectacular up there ... These photos were all taken "as is" without filters or post-processing.  Peaks is great place to relax, unwind .. and take photos! (Click for larger versions).
