It’s April 15, I am in Hurley, New York, and I am hoping for more visible signs of spring.
There have been some pretty days, but not a ton of growth
These flowers came and went already in my friend’s front yard.
There are two different municipalities, the City of Kingston, New York, and the Town of Kingston, New York, and here are a couple of photos from each.
Stan’z Used Items and Antiques on Albany Ave…in the City of Kingston.
Kingston Lumber sign at the back of the Kingston Plaza….city!
Apparently unused Camp Madison in the Town of Kingston
Kingston Reservoir #4…Town of Kingston as well.
Buildings along Wall Street in the City of Kingston
Cool old signage on a building on Broadway in the City of Kingston
All of these photos were shot when driving around Ulster County, New York for the various other things I have going on. Just a quick stop to pop off a shot on the road side….mostly things I’d noticed before, but never stopped for one reason or another.
John A Coleman Catholic High School on Hurley Ave in Hurley…I graduated in 1996
Cottekill Post Office in Lucas Ave in Cottekill
Soon to be demolished bridge on Wynkoop Road in Hurley
Gazlay House on Route 209 in Kerhonkson
At the end of Binnewater Road in Rosendale
I returned to Ulster County in the Hudson Valley of New York, my hometown, for an exciting couple of months. It was the first day of spring, and I plan to spend most of my time there until almost the beginning of summer. Go to my Home Page to read about the Ulster County Tour I will be doing, displaying and selling photos and CDs of images.
Perrine’s Bridge in Rifton with water and ice moving rapidly down the Wallkill River
The lights on Perrine’s Bridge are cool

It’s funny how little I end up photographing Kingston, with all the time I spend in the area. For some reason in my recent time in Ulster County I ended up taking lots of photos of Kingston, so here are some I liked.
Old Dutch Church in Uptown
Back of the old Standard Furniture, and a former theatre, in Uptown
Presidents Place…I love this church and I like the “Old Bridge” too.
The sign for the Skytop Steakhouse, now closed, still sits atop the Rodeway Inn
A shot below the “Old Bridge” (The Wurtz Street Bridge)
I had the idea for this shot of the Washington DC Mormon Temple on the Beltway in Kensington Maryland at least 3 years ago. I was happy with how quickly I found the overpass and made it happen the night I finally decided to do it.
It was a fun shot
I spent a couple of days in Florida, generally relaxing, exploring, and spending time with new friends and with my parents, who were down there. Here are a couple of shots…okay a lot of shots for just a few days. It’s nice to have nothing much to do but take photos!
Clevelander Hotel and Bar in South Beach Miami – fun place!
View from atop the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse
Seen at an orange grove on the side of the road near the everglades

In my last days before flying off to warm places, I shot these photos in a few locations. I wonder if I will see snow again before spring…probably!

I continue to enjoy photographing Rosendale, New York, and the winter has presented some new opportunities. Here’s what I’ve come up with recently there.
Yes, an old fotomat. Still in Rosendale at the Fann’s plaza. For some reason.
First time shooting the underside of the trestle!
I think the Rosendale Library, on Main Street, always looks really cool.
“The road to church” – James Street along the Rondout Creek.
The church I went to growing up, St Peter’s, at dusk.
