Maine - Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor

I'm just back from Maine's beautiful Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor region with my wife and 2 sons.  In addition to wonderful outdoor activities like kayaking, biking, and hiking, the area is a photographer's paradise (and its not too bad for seafood and ice cream!).  Below are a few of my new Maine images.  These and others can be seen at my ETSY shop: JOSHFRIEDMANPHOTO on ETSY

Car Show

Here's the thing - I'm not really a "car guy," per se.  I've never changed my car's oil (by myself), & my one attempt to replace a flat tire was a bit of a fiasco (hey, that's what AAA is for!).  My knowledge of car parts includes steering wheel, windshield wiper, etc.  My ignorance about automobiles aside, I think antique cards have a wonderful aesthetic and nostalgic quality.  Besides, they're just really cool!  This past weekend I photographed some vintage beauties at the New Hope Automobile Show, in New Hope, Pennsylvania.  Here are a few...

Saratoga Springs, New York

I'm just back from a day in beautiful Saratoga Springs, New York (picking my older son up from his 3-week summer program).  I had a little extra time (my middle-aged bladder usually doesn't allow me to sleep much past 6 a.m.), so my Cannon 7D and I went out to explore the area.  The sign to an old diner caught my eye, and I was lucky enough to have a clear morning with blue skies.  Perhaps the older I get, the more charm & character I see in these vintage signs - a nice break from the familiarity of Home Depot, Target & McDonald's (I'm NOT lovin' it!).

Saratoga Springs has loads of cool shops - Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company, Bettie's Cakes (an deliciously awesome cupcake store, that makes you feel like you woke up in 1958...).  On our way to lunch, the cool collection of cowboy boots in front of Saratoga Saddlery got my attention.....
