Happy New Year!

Well, it's been a while...and no excuses, I should have been more active here. Today marks the end of 2010, and it's been a tumultuous year, filled with ups and downs. I had the pleasure of working with an amazing group of people during the Decennial Census, making new friends and gaining valuable experience. The year ends with me back in "career transition" but with high hopes for what the new year brings.

It has also been an exciting year photographically, with another spectacular Jones Beach Air Show, and many outstanding events at the American Airpower Museum. Just a few of the highlights...

January 22 - Hempstead Harbour Club, Glen Cove

February 6 - After their weekend opponent was stranded in Pittsburgh due to a snowstorm, the SUNY Stony Brook Seawolves held an intra-squad scrimmage instead.

April 1 - Happy Census Day! I count two people...and some sun!

April 11 - Visiting the tugboat graveyard.
