[Above] Hedley Park Place, River Street, Troy, New York I love Sunday nights for landscape photography. All the parking lots are empty and traffic is usually light. I shot this image from a small gate balcony on the Green Island Bridge. Winds were minimal and the moon was just right. I never realized how much vibration is transmitted through the bridge deck last night. It really put the vibration reduction lens to the test.

@johnbulmer: Power* restored. @Killswitchmag and Revolution 7 Creative are back online. Now, on to that coffee I have been wanting since 4AM! *[IMO, there is nothing more depressing than a power outage. The lack man-made sounds is unsettling. The house feels lifeless. I am lost without my constant stream in news, tweets, Facebook updates, and RSS feeds. Just goes to show how fragile and dependent we (more specifially, I) have become on technology.]
@johnbulmer: Photography is not a crime. Time to make a stand, the fightback begins here: http://bit.ly/nfcHy * * [Lost track of how many times I have been hassled by uninformed people for taking photos in public. Funny thing is, every time this happens, I go home and do a Google image search of whatever I was shooting. The search results are usually in the thousands. If I were trying to be stealthy, I am sure as hell not going to be walking around with a 300mm lens and camera bag.]

Nauset Beach is one of my personal waypoints. It was the place where I first laid eyes on the ocean. And every time I drive down the access road that leads to the toll booth, I relive that childhood morning. Vividly.

I love the creepy, socked in mornings along the Cape Cod coast. The fog makes the cement colored water look all the more foreboding. The line ups are virtually empty. If you want some water time, you have to have the dedication and a hearty appetite for ice cream headaches.
If you are a web/print/mx designer, you have no doubt been faced with this infuriating and insulting situation. Not to mention the tidal wave of self taught design poseurs and vampires looking for something for nothing. Yes indeed, it's good to be a designer gangsta.

Got one last gift from the gods of summer today. Mid 60's in the high peaks region of the Adirondack Park just three weeks from December. It was a gift that was not squandered. Above are some casual images from today's hike. Probably the like the past warm waypoint until the snow thaws next spring.
