The Newport Bridge.  Again.  And again.  And again. You know what?  It will happen again next month.  Next year.  Next decade.  And there will be many other photographers who gravitate here to take shots.  With the advancing technology, it’s only getting easier…and I’m fine with that. I was actually here for a shot for a …

Alastor’s 1st Day of Learn to Skate

Alastor has been keeping away from hockey but always spoke of trying it someday.  Today was that day.  His “brudder” has had the spotlight long enough. He fell no less than 70 times during the hour-long session.  I would be hospitalized after 2 falls at most…but he held it together and did it mostly with …

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 …

And….the invasion of the “Untitled Goose Game”….. NOTE:  For …

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

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.
