The photo above is a scene that will be history in a fairly short amount of time.  I took it of the “old” or “current” Tappan Zee Bridge from the River Walk right at the border of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.  For those who are interested, the Hudson Harbor complex was slightly south and to the left of the shot. In any case, three designs for the new Tappan Zee Bridge were just released for public consumption.  They are are very different from the original bridge design and will change the landscape forever.  You can view them at this link.  Behind all the ramifications and politics there is an urgent need for a new bridge.  Where many feel the the system has fallen short is with the loss of a proposed mass transit system that would have relieved the traffic flow across the bridge and e...

  One thing I keep hearing over and over again when I read about how people get great photos is simply – ALWAYS HAVE A CAMERA AVAILABLE!  Well, I really have to agree on that one.  On Sat., Sept 8, we had a big storm moving in.  I knew it was coming, but thought I had a while. In fact, I had a quiet evening at home mapped out rather than taking to the road in what was supposed to be severe weather.  The iPad was charged up as was the phone in case of a blackout.  But I was oblivious to the tornado watches .   But I had been on the road for about 7 hours with photo shoots for other agents and my own buyer clients.  Since I don’t check things like the web or even emails and text messages when I’m working with clients, I had been detached from internet for pretty much the whole day.  So I ...

Anyone living on the eastern portion of the Hudson River will attest to the fact that there is nothing quite like a sunset over the water.   The light reflects off the water - even the choppy water of the Hudson - to create a spectacular display every single night.  There are some seasonal differences.  The pink hues seen in this picture are pretty characteristic of the summer months.  The people in that sail boat were lucky enough to have a front row seat.... © 2012 - Ruthmarie G.

  Here’s hoping that everyone had a wonderful Independence Day.  I had a great time with my camera this year.  In the end, I ended up taking photos at two fireworks events.  The first was at the Kensico Dam in Valhalla.  This was a free event that boasted some 20,000 guests.  The place was packed, but I got there early enough to get a reasonably good spot for me and my camera…     More on that later.  The photo above was taken on July 4 2012 in Tarrytown.  The display took place in Tarrytown’s “sister village”  Sleepy Hollow.  Planting myself on the River Walk near Hudson Harbor ensured me a front row seat.  For those looking to go in 2013, be advised that you need to get there early.  I arrived 2.5 hours before the event and it was already crowded.   Below is a collage of photos from t...

If you're looking for a light colored hardwood floor, consider maple  flooring for your home in Westchester NY. Maple flooring is a light blond color with low graining. It’s a light, smooth look that can open up any room and give a modern, contemporary and northern European feel.     Maple flooring is harder than oak. On the Janka hardness scale, Maple is a 1450 vs. red oak which is 1290. Maple is lighter than oak flooring and its grain is smoother. While traditionally a light blond color, the shade of maple flooring can differ depending on its age and the area where it was grown.

Every June Tarrytown NY has a Pet Parade as part of the festivities on its famous 3rd Friday events.    This year was no different and I will have more on the 3rd Friday generally, but in the meantime, here are a few canine portraits that I managed to obtain while balancing one of my own dogs on a leash along with a camera.   This first one is my favorite – Big Meets Small.   Large dogs are always so tolerant of little ones.  And this spunky little dog was ready to give big Bear a run for his money.  They are just getting to know each other…. The rest are portraits that I was lucky enough to get despite the awkward way in which I chose to try and take pics…. Many thanks to all my canine models.  They were very patient with me! © 2012 – Ruthmarie G. Hicks – http://thewestchesterview.com ...
