Upstate New York

From 1994 to 1997, I was a post-doctoral associate at Boyce Thompson Institute at Cornell University in Upstate New York. While there, I had the tremendous opportunity to go out and photograph the area railroads. This included Conrail's Water Level and Southern Tier routes, NYS&W and CP trains on their ex-Erie Lackawanna and D&H routes and as runthroughs on the Southern Tier, and several tourist operations that dotted the state. In my opinion, New York State is underappreciated for its subtle beauty, which helped to create bucolic settings for my rail photography. I certainly hope that you can see why I loved living in this area so much when you browse through the photos I took while there. I would like to thank both Bruce Fingerhood and Tom Trencansky for assistance with some of these shots, especially the night photography in and around Ithaca.
