Image Description/Story

Although I was born in New York City, I've called New Jersey my home for all but that first year of my life. Many feel the need to venture away, even if just for their college years. I, on the hand attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, "...on the banks of the old Raritan". Now, with a family, I have settled in the heart of central NJ, right off of exit 8 on the NJTPK. I have driven the roads and have seen the myriad of sites that New Jersey has to offer, but I do not think I was able to fully appreciate it all until I took up the art of photography. I believe the idea behind this pursuit is rather simple, to capture a fleeting moment for others to assimilate. However, until you stop along a busy highway, as cars zoom by, just because the clouds make for a fantastic backdrop to an old farm house or walk all the way across a rural field, simply to capture the flowers in bloom, it can be difficult to take the time and actually experience what is all around us. But these things can be experienced right here, this is why New Jersey is called the "Garden State".

  • The way the NBA is emphasizing three-point shooting and the ability to switch on defense, every team.

    Startling ConsistencyMartin had 396 ABs at (full season Class A) Quad Cities, and hit.

    With all the hype and hoopla surrounding the rookie class, sometimes it is easy to forget that Brandon Ingram is also only 20 years old.

    One missing piece from the game was Jim Boeheim, a founding member of the rivalry and staple on the sidelines for every great matchup these two teams have had.

    He will be hoping to add more tries to his tally in the knockout stages.
