Ocean State Soccer – Week 8 – Final Weekend

The final weekend brought decent weather and a lot of smiles along with league photos (not by me!) and trophies. I had a blast coaching this season.  It was my first year coaching soccer at this age level and first time coaching in about 10 years.  It was an enjoyable experience and I look forward …

Ocean State Soccer – Week 6

A raw weather day, but at least the rain held off and many play still showed to play out their games.  Columbus Day weekend sports are a tough ask as families are trying to eek out a last weekend of short vacations before the holiday rush. And….the invasion of the “Untitled Goose Game”….. NOTE:  For …

Newport Bridge – Twilight

The past three mornings I had tried to catch the waning crescent moon, the Newport Bridge and the rising sun with the bridge and was met with success and failure. Using a telephoto lens with a teleconvertor, you have to be patient when setting focus.  You are fighting the focal length, any slight breeze, small …

North Kingstown High School – Athletic Field

The high school athletic field is nearing completion.  While it appears the track still needs to be completed is looks as though the field will be ready for tonight’s football game with Bishop Hendricken visiting. While I miss the old high school’s field (1994), this is a pretty impressive layout for this year and future …

Ocean State Soccer – Teams 809 & 103

Week 3 of the 2019 Soccer season started with team pictures (not by me) and games!  With our spawns participating in the U7/8s and U10 divisions, we’ve had a busy morning. Sorry to the 809 parents – with coaching the team, I can’t grab as many photos as I normally would. If any parent of …

Wickford Shipyard – Aftermath

14 hours after the fire at the shipyard in Wickford, RI.  Looking at it from this perspective, it’s a wonder that the fire only stayed in such a small area/one building.  I believe at least four communities responded to the fire with response also coming from the water.  

OBX – Just Some Shots

Outer Banks, North Carolina – After spending a week with friends and family here, we are finally home.  Most of the shots acquired were casual shots, but here are a few that stuck out not of the family…

St. Louis – Archway

This was a forced experience. I didn’t bring my “nice” cameras or optimal lenses for what I attempted to do.  However, this experience has me wanting to come back and make it a destination to focus on photography. The Arch itself was much more impressive in person.  When I saw it from the plane coming …

4th of July (okay, really the 3rd….)

It was great to get out to get some photos, but I was impatient as I had a hard to managing the controls with my arm still recovering from surgery.  I rushed settings and didn’t end up with everything I wanted.  However, it’s cool that the Bridge Authority has this feature available for the Newport …
