One of my hobbies while out on the road is collecting photographs of trucks that catch my eye.  There’s a few photographs of my own truck mixed in with this collection.  “a collection of trucks that have caught my eye” From Trucks, posted by Eric Florack on 6/03/2010 (107 items) practice in the dark This […]

JonesToTheGrindstone.com Who created “napkin art” anyway? As I walked up the carpeted flight of stairs and choked the white enameled handrails, I wondered what in the hell I was putting myself through. Once I was at the top of the stairs, I fiddled with my rings, turning them round and round. There I was at […]

I spent this monring hunting around for things related to my new job and in that process, found a wonderful montage called “A Trucker’s View Of America” that I thought I’d share with you. It’s occurred to me that I might do well to try and post pics of what I see out on the […]

Most people will remember, I think… at least those not ‘educated’ at government schools… that Hiroshima was hit by a bomb at the end of world war two… and we’ve all seen some of the destruction wrought by that attack. Just as a reminder, here’s a few pics of the aftermath. Remember in all cases […]

There’s something about a road leading off into the distance that makes one want to follow, even when you don’t know, and can’t see, where it leads. There’s something about a nightfall, that makes the darkness seem inviting. There’s something about the sound of truck tires in the distance, that calls to the soul of […]

To our east  by a few miles lies Rochester’s Lake Ave, famed in song and story. (Yes, song… most recently, Foreigner’s “Rev on the Red Line”… Lead singer Lou Graham grew up in Gates, a bedroom on Rochester’s West Side.. and often cruised on Lake in the day.)  At the north end of Lake is […]

Long time readers to this blog will know that I often spend afternoons and evenings trackside, awaiting a train to photograph.  But while I’m waiting, I often shoot the surroundings, weather, sky, birds, animals, even cars, if they’re interesting. I suppose it’s a tribute to the 10,000 monkeys theory that such random and impulsive shots […]

These are from a couple years ago. They’re taken at Ashtabula, OH. on a chilly day. Long time readers will know I’ve always been a bit of a railfan, and that’s a trait I’ve passed on to my boys. (What boy isn’t fascinated with trains?) We made a trip over to northeastern OH for a […]

I snapped this one during a morning walk along the Erie Canal. This is near Elmgrove Road in Greece, facing east, at around 9 in the morning. You can see the amount of bike traffic the trail gets. Lots of ducks, geese and the occasional heron or egret dot the water.

A rainbow of such clarity is an unusual event of itself… but a double? You’re looking east along Buffalo Street by the tracks. This is the first I’ve ever caught. You can’t see it in this shot, but it’s a full arch to the right, apparently hitting the ground on the other side to shot […]
