Syracuse Crunch vs. Utica Comets

The Syracuse Crunch took on the Utica Comets tonight at the War Memorial at OnCenter in Syracuse, NY. The rivals battled all game long, but Kristers Gudlevskis proved the hero with a 47 save effort, as the Crunch defeated the Comets by a score of 2-1. He seemed to be back to his Olympian form, making quite a few incredible saves, at times seeming to literally stand on his head.

Syracuse Crunch Home Opener

The 22nd season of Syracuse Crunch hockey started with high hopes as the Crunch took on their Rte. 81 rivals, the Binghamton Senators. Kristers Gudlevskis earned the win with 27 saves and Jeff Tambellini scored both of Syracuse’s goals in the 2-1 win. Although both teams seemed to be sizing each other up for much of the game, there was plenty of action and great plays by both sides and each goalie looked sharp in net.

Ground Zero – December 2003

A couple years after the events of September 11, 2001, my wife and I ventured to New York City. These are the photos I took from the observation areas of Ground Zero, taken in December of 2003. Tonight, my wife and I were reviewing video clips on YouTube, attempting to give our oldest daughter (10 years old) some scope of what happened that day. I opened these photos for her, to give her an idea of the size of the grounds/territory impacted. This is really the first time I’ve shared them publicly.

Back to School – Part 1

Today was the first day of school for most kids in the Syracuse area, as it was for my two oldest daughters. I was fortunate enough to have had my backdrop and lighting already set up, so figured a quick couple shots before heading out to the school was in order. The requisite shots in front of the school were also done. It’s one of the few times they are very agreeable to having pictures done.
