Clouds sweeping over Fall River

10pm on an unsuspecting Thursday. I took out the recycling and noticed some seriously dramatic clouds sweeping through the sky under the moon. I grabbed my equipment and took to the street with my slippers on like an old man. The newly renovated Cornell Lofts are basically my front yard. They helped to make a…

Sunset at Kekaha Beach in Kauai

The sunsets on Kauai were absolutely ridiculous. Best part about an island full of beaches and a small population was that not many folks were at each beach! Taken January 2017!

After the storm broke

Always an uncompromising display of beauty on such a simple beach. Gooseberry Island. Westport, Massachusetts. June 2017.  

Golenski v.2018

I only update my headshot once every several years. I decided it was time once friends and colleagues started telling me that I’m unrecognizable in my current headshot. Who knew beards has such an impact on facial distinction? Anyway, I spent some time tinkering with a nice studio setup I purchased in order to take…

Stars above the Mountains

“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!). After a day hike at over 10,000 feet above sea level, we returned…

Pathway to the Stars

I found a pathway to the stars and its not too far from home 😀 Aligning the milky way galaxy with particular landscapes can prove challenging since the orientation of our galaxy’s core shifts directions as the months change. Thankfully, in the northern hemisphere, the summer months allow for the best milky way viewing fairly…

Break in the Storm

The past couple of days in Southeastern New England have been a bit of a heat wave. And being from Massachusetts, we all know that heatwaves usually break with thunderstorms!

Creating a Photograph vs. Taking a Photograph

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” 
— Elliott Erwitt Who this post is for Aspiring photographers or anyone who wants to learn how…

The shooting star that destroyed us

Sat down tonight with some nostalgic tunes from my high school days (think Senses Fail, Finch, and more). Thought about all the fun I used to have jamming out until the sun came up, creating image manipulations and digital paintings. It’s been well over a decade since I got lost in photoshop just creating art…

The Quiet Amsterdam Canals

While in Amsterdam with some colleagues this past February, we stayed on a houseboat for a couple of nights located on one of the canals. The gentle rocking of the boat at night was a wonderful way to fall asleep. While I found Amsterdam to be a bustling city during the day, it became quite…

Star Trails over Sakonnet Point

Sometimes the best star trails are captured during very cold nights on the beach. Taken at Sakonnet Point, Little Compton, Rhode Island. In the distance you can see Little Cormorant Rock Lighthouse.

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars to…

Never Sleep

People often miss out on so much by going to sleep…    

Tree of Light

One of my favorite local places to visit is Buzzards Bay Brewing in Westport, Massachusetts. An old farm converted into a brewery. In the summer, the front of the farm is lively and bustling. Come winter, the crowds die down and a few die hard communitarians remain. In this case, not many people were around…

Out of Focus

A lot of folks strive to take super crisp photos, as one usually should! On the other hand, sometimes it’s fun to get creative and alter the way light is absorbed into your camera’s sensor (or film!). It often makes the subject matter unrecognizable, but in doing so you create an entirely new subject matter……

Connected with Everything.

“…If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything.” – Alan Watts

Stuck in the Ice Two

Spending a frosty evening photographing Battleship Cove, in Fall River, Massachusetts during the winter of 2015. The USS Massachusetts is part of a large collection of naval vessels from World War II. This is the second photo in this series. Check out the first one! Temperature: 10 degrees F. Wind Chill: I couldn’t feel my…
