Model railroads appeal to the child in each of us. Each year at this time at the Connecticut River Museum, a new model train exhibit is open to the public. According to their website, the artist and train enthusiast Steve Cryan is responsible for this creation. The detail he includes is fantastic, whimsical and at times very humorous, especially to the adults. One can easily spend hours finding all the hidden gems in this ultimate model railroad.
I'm not very good at wildlife photography, but I had to try to catch a few images of this guy as he grazed in my back yard this past Sunday. He posed well and didn't notice me as I was shooting through a glass window. He didn't stick around however once I went outside to try and photograph him.
Finally after a week away from blogging, I've found some time to get out, take a few pics, and actually get back to posting. I envy those of you whose blogs I follow who are retired and posting great images from all over the world. I hope to join your ranks within a couple of years, but until then, I'll have to do a better job of finding time to photograph.
This is just one of the many demonstrations that go on at Mystic Seaport. The breeches buoy is a device designed to rescue people from ships or to transfer people from one location to another in times of danger. It is used by the US Lifesaving Association. Looks like fun to me. This was taken earlier this year, when it was still warm and the trees were green.
Ever run across a scene or an object and think to yourself, "boy, that would make a great photo." I experience this a lot, most recently on a side street in Portsmouth. I saw this neat old sign and door to a tavern an thought there should be a good photo here. I tried a number of different shots but in the end, I'm not happy with any of them.
