Sailboat on the Thames River in New London, Connecticut

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series New London/Groton, Connecticut

Thought I would post something a little different.  This is a photo I took in the fall of last year at New London, Connecticut.  The sailboat is heading northerly on the Thames River and I was standing on the grounds of Fort Trumbull.  It was a beautiful, brisk fall day and only a few boats […]

Downy Woodpecker in the winter

Downy Woodpecker

This entry is part 11 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

Today at lunch, I was taking a few photos before heading back to work and was able to capture a few shots of this male Downy Woodpecker (at least I think it’s a Downy and not a Hairy Woodpecker).  He was taking seeds from the bird feeder and hammering them into the tree bark.  This […]

Another Tufted Titmouse Photo

This entry is part 10 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

I’ve been playing around with various post processing methods for birds and believe I’m focusing in on a series of techniques that look the best.  I’ve tried various plug-ins for Lightroom and Photoshop, but what I like the best is just using the Lightroom controls in the “Develop Module” (which is basically Camera Raw).  I […]

Chickadee with 300 mm f/4 lens and new Canon 7D

This entry is part 9 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

After I purchased my new Canon 300 mm f/4.0 lens, I realized that my T1i was starting to get rather “long in the tooth”.  I’ve had my eye on a Canon 7D for quite a while, so I decided to sell a few more things that I don’t use anymore and purchase the 7D. This […]

First Photo with my new Lens – Tufted Titmouse

This entry is part 8 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

This week, I decided it was time to sell stuff that I don’t use anymore (primarily from old hobbies) and take the money and buy a good lens.  So, I bought a Canon 300 mm F4 L lens.  To say the least, I love this lens.  It’s opening up new ways for me to photography birds, […]

For this photo, […]

Eqyptian Art from the Peabody Museum

Egyptian Art from the Peabody Museum

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Peabody Museum

Last Friday, I took a vacation day to take care of some errands.  After finishing the errands, I decided to take my relatively new Canon G12 out for some photography.  Since it was a really nasty day (lots of rain and fog), I headed to the Peabody Museum in New Haven, Connecticut.  The above shot is […]
