Thirteen Photos from 2013

2013 was a year of major change in my career. Leaving a staff job at a newspaper that I worked at since 1999 meant starting over in a lot of ways.  Looking back at what I shot over the past 12 months I put together a group of 13 of my favorite images from the year.  Someone else may have chosen 13 totally different photos, but here is what I came up with in no particular order.

Sea Plane Views

Last week I had the chance to fly in a sea plane.  We took off from the East River and took the 35 minute ride out to Sag Harbor in the Hamptons to get a sneak peak at the conversion of the old Bulova Watchcase Factory into a new luxury condo project.  We flew pretty low, not more than 1500 feet, so we had some great views the whole way.  The paper published a gallery of my aerial photos online as well as a spread in print. Here are a few of my favorites from the trip.
