I'm not sure of the name of this building. It was obviously a rich person's residence at one time, but now it's part of a church I think. Anyway, it struck me. A great example of Saratoga architecture.


I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of horse-racing excitement this weekend at the Saratoga Casino and raceway.

Harness Track 1

The skies were just a little bit overcast, this allows for excellent soft and even lighting.

Harness Track 2

I'm not much of a gambler, but I love to watch the horses run.  I was excited to see that this frame captured a mid-stride moment where both the horse's front legs were in the air.

I always enjoy my time at the Harness Track, even on rainy days.  It is a pleasure to shoot here compared to the big track, there are fewer obstructions and I don't need to bring my big 300mm lens to get the shot.
