About a week after Hurricane Sandy devastated New York City and New Jersey a nor’easter hit the region.  I ventured out to the park to grab a few shots being very careful of where I walked and setup.  There were a lot of trees that already took major damage from the hurricane and I was certain any trees weakened by Sandy would surely be a danger during this storm.  I set up a few shots and stayed out for an hour or so.  Just as I packed up a 90 foot widow-maker dropped with a thunderous cracking and deafening thud as it hit the ground.  It fell only about 100-150 feet from me.  I’m glad that I was cautious about picking my spot to setup! Here are 2 resulting shots from that night.  I hope you enjoy them.

My wife and I were looking for a way that we could physically help out the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  After much searching I came across a non-profit group called Team Rubicon.  Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with medical professionals to rapidly deploy emergency response teams into crisis situations.  I can say it was an honor to work along side such great men and women this Veterans Day Weekend.  TR is doing great things and I look forward to working with them again in the near future.   Please stop by teamrubiconusa.orgfor more information on the group and how you can help.

My Cousin in Boston is putting a donation drive together for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  Please, if you have the resources or things you may not need that will help change the lives of those individuals affected by the storm-give what you can. I have seen what its like there 1st hand and I can tell you – these people need help!  Please share this on your wall, tweet it, tumble it stumble it, spread the word if you are or know people in the Boston area that can help make this event a huge success!

 Please visit his event page here.  Feel free to hit me up with any q&a and I will do my best to answer.

Just took a shot of mine from Mexico trip and brought it into Photoshop 6 BETA to fool around. Removed all the people and did some touchups. Then I created the 3rd version in Topaz Adjust for some contrast boost. I’m happy with the results. You can see the post over on my Google + page as well. #lovingcs6 #photoshop
