Cardinal Christmas Ornament

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – Cardinal in the Christmas Tree…

I love these cardinal ornaments because they are so pretty and so holiday -like that they really warm the heart. I think they are quite simply joyful! They also take me back to my childhood where my Grandparents had dozens of blown glass bird ornaments.

Happy Halloween! Carlson’s of White Plains at Halloween

H Carlson Florist is a wonderful example of a local business that has thrived over the years because they are truly unique. Nancy Schellhas has a way of creating arrangements and offering quality goods for the home and hearth so that it leaves your local Pottery Barn in the dust.

Porch - Gedney Farms White Plains NY 10605

Fotos On The Fly: The view from the front porch…

Porches can help sell homes....However, beyond the porch itself, is the view from the porch. If the view is a good one, you need to show it in all its glory....After all, if you've got it, flaunt it!

Train leaving Irvington NY For GCS

Fotos On The Fly – The Hudson River & the Hudson Line….

People who turn their noses up at commuting to Manhattan from Westchester are denying themselves a far more affordable (and upscale) lifestyle that can be had for a very minimum of inconvenience. Metro-North is nothing like the subway. The 30 minutes I spent on the Metro-North train when I commuted to Manhattan were among the most productive of my day.

Fotos On The Fly – Surreal Sunsets on the Hudson – Sleepy Hollow NY

ately I've been taking a lot of photos along the Hudson River. The sheer concentration on the Hudson River was due in part to a client who had some very specific requests with the Hudson River as the subject.
