This is the image I took of the Queen Ann’s Revenge back in December last year (2017), originally posted without a title. I’ve since learned that this ship is indeed the Queen Ann’s Revenge, commercial fishing vessel registered in Point Pleasant, NJ. Surprisingly, I received some disturbing news the other day…
Central New Jersey was visited with its First Snow like a brush across the cheek and a soft kiss…
On the boardwalk in Atlantic City is the Korean War Memorial, which pays homage to all who served during the “Forgotten War”. This Veterans Day it is fitting that we pay tribute to these men and women who gladly gave up their freedom and made the supreme sacrifice that we might enjoy ours, reminding us once again that “Freedom Is Not Free”.
We had the opportunity to visit Jersey City, the Skyscraper Capital of NJ, this past weekend and decided to get there early and hit our favorite places: Exchange Plaza and NewPort.
BTW, if you haven’t been to Exchange Plaza or NewPort, you owe it to yourself to visit; the view of lower Manhattan is particularly beautiful and not to be missed (and the Jersey City Skyline ain’t too bad either!).
In our recent trip to Cuba, one of the first places we decided to visit was Viñales, about 2 1/2 hours southwest of Habana, near Pinar Del Rio.
We wanted to see the famous mogotes, the limestone “haystack” mountains so prominently featured in the area. So off we went with Pedro, our chofer…

Compatible Flash: The Eyes Have It!
We got the call Thursday evening to turn this one around quickly…so we agreed to Friday after work. to shoot this Studio apartment. No problem, I thought, I’ll just recharge the camera batteries, load up the camera bags, make sure we have the light stands, tripods, compatible flash, etc., load the car and head on up to Jersey City. And off we went…
This is our most photographed building in New Brunswick, NJ. Over the space of 4 years, the tenants changed several times, and each time, the property managers, DEVCO (New Brunswick Development Corp), asked us to photograph it…again.
While this is good for business, the real point of this post is to demonstrate how things change over time…and to reiterate: change is good.
Did you know that Lakehurst Naval Station actually has two memorials? Of course, everyone knows about the first memorial to commemorate the Hindenburg Disaster (right behind Hangar 1, pictured above). It has been the subject of articles, movies, documentaries, etc. since it happened on May 6, 1937.
