NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Our drive from Connecticut to New York was one of the worst ever – torrential freezing rain.  A normally two hour trip took three and a half hours.  We arrived tired and out of sorts, not really in a state of mind to photograph.  Here’s dinner with a friend at a local bistro.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Lovely, enveloping early winter light this morning.  Dashed out onto the street to catch it while it lasted.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This post is belated.  The image was taken at a truffle dinner at the James Beard Foundation on December 1, but posted in April.  Not much of an image – I should have gotten more or the rolls in the foreground, but I guess the smell of truffles distracted me.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – We attend a Piemontese white truffle dinner at the James Beard Foundation, hosted by Joe and Paul Bartolotta.  I’ve edited this post – on reflection I like the image below better than the one originally posted.

By the way I’ve made some changes to the site.  I’ve added three additional galleries under “Parties” and a gallery called Fireworks.  I’ve also added a star rating system.  This is an experiment – I’ll be working over the next few months to refine it.  Feel free to click on the stars at the top of each post to cast a vote on it.

WARREN, CONNECTICUT – A family Thanksgiving dinner at home in Connecticut.

Thanksgiving is a busy time for me.  I’m the cook in the family so Thanksgiving takes a fair amount of effort on my part.  You can be assured that I actually do capture each image on the date indicated – at least one each day, but during this busy time I got behind up uploading.  Henceforth I’ll make every effort to post pictures within a day or two of the date they were taken.
