My adventures around Ulster County, New York, were a bit disjointed in December and early January, but I was able to get some photos I’m pretty excited about…check em out!
I’ve enjoyed exploring more during the night time recently, mostly around Kingston, New York. Check out what I’ve found.
The Kingston area has a fascinating, industrial and business influenced history. And it’s always changing of course. Here are some shots from around the Kingston area that are influenced by its past history and modern day goings on.
For some reason I drove about 100 miles from Kingston to Cooperstown on a rainy day, and here’s what I came up with.
A couple of days after Thanksgiving, I headed up to New York from my parents’ house in Delaware, and did what I could to take some photos along the way. For some reason I was drawn to bridges!
I decided one afternoon, while staying with friends in Tillson, New York, to somewhat randomly, using the web, find a small named neighborhood to drive to, with the caveat being that I didn’t already have good photos of it, and that it be in Ulster County. It ended up being Turnwood in the town of Hardbenburgh, which I’d barely heard of, even though I realized I ended up there driving once before, but hadn’t shot good photos last time. It involved leaving the county and coming back in..and almost 70 miles of driving to get there. I had a good time, and here are the best photos.

I woke up in Tillson, New York one morning and there was a light layer of snow. I almost didn’t go out, but someone told me how nice it was around the area, so I took a bit of a drive, checked it out, got come coffee, and took a few photos.
The more I travel, the more I realize how many cool things can be found without going far away. So I’m back in Ulster County, New York, my emotional home, and former physical home. I plan to spend more time here in the coming year, exploring lots of places that I have never checked out before. I’m posting this right about a week after I got here, and so far I’ve photographed mostly familiar sites but am motivated to start finding new ones. Here is what I’ve done so far…
Here are 2 photos I grabbed right before I left Ulster County…not to come back until late in 2014.
