Photography is best when it can depict moods and emotions. This is best achieved when a rapport is reached with the subject. No sniping, no telephotos; only human interaction. It is then that the real photos are taken. These women were graduating from a Montessori teacher reparation course run by Catholic Charities, my client. With a little interaction I was able to capture their state of self assurance.

Coney Island at early spring time when it's still calm and quiet. This weekend the summer season starts and this beach and amusement area will be rocking. These photos were taken a few years ago with the Nikon D-200 and before hurricane sandy had a devastating effect on the beach. Things are getting back to normal.

This North Fork town is practically at the end of the wonderful wine country that has raised some eyebrows and has caused some discomfort to wine snobs. I just love many of it's wines and I champion the effort. The fact that I reside on the same island that produces such fine wines gives me the chills. Just like in Sicily? The weather is better in Sicily and the growing season is 24 month long. But I must compromise. These are some early digital images shot with the Fuji S-1 Pro, my first serious digital camera.
