I photographed my friends Miniature Trains...Amazing...

I was invited to take photos of my friend Frankie's uncle's Miniature Trains, Uncle Al. He lives in Staten Island so I took a ride out there this week, rented some lighting and some lenses and did a full day photo shoot.
Uncle Al has been working on this train set for about 20 years, it is totally amazing. Check out the photos.

We also had discussions about a book he is printing in December.
All in all a good connection was made at the show.

Went to Philly on Tuesday to shoot some photos....

Philly is a nice town, not as big as Boston but some good opportunites for photos. The best place for me to shoot was on top of city hall. It is a great spot to see the whole city and we had a perfect day to go also.
It was nice except for our bus breaking down on the way home so it took us 6 hours to get home instead of 2 hours.
