My first New Jeep Wrangler

15 Nov 2016 15:11:24 PDT

I visited first Groove Car via my Credit Union and gave them all the options. Wrangler came in Sport, Sport S, Sahara, and Rubicon. Then you had sub-sub-models, like Willy's Wheeler and Anniversary Editions. I'm writing from memory, so pardon me if I get some bits wrong. Like, I wanted a limited slip, but that wasn't available on the Sport - but, was available on the Sport S, if you're willing to take the 17 inch rims. You couldn't get the nicer seats unless you took the Sahara, which folded in the nerf bars and matching color tire flares but the lockers were only available on the Rubicon which was way more money but you loose the side steps.



My First Cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines

12 Oct 2015 13:00:20 PDT

I am grateful for (just shy of Category 5) Hurricane Joaquin providing me with the full spectrum of experience of cruising on the open ocean. Without those wonderful 155mph winds, I never would have experienced Sea States ranging the full spectrum 0 thru 8 on a scale of 9, with 9 labeled as Phenomenal...



Bitcoin donation button has been added

23 Jul 2015 06:12:59 PDT

In a time long, long ago (the 1990's) the Internet was ruled by hackers, students, and universities. It was primarily a text based communications system where people could send messages and retrieve data. There was Gopher and Veronica, the "newsgroups," and utilities such as "finger."...



Rapture of the Deep (Joy of nude SCUBA diving)

04 Feb 2015 12:37:26 PDT

I was an avid SCUBA diver in 80's, having collected nearly every certification available: Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Rescue and Recovery, Equipment Specialist, cross-certified between SSI and PADI. One Winter's Day I parked in the Northport train station parking lot and cut through a dirt alley to Larkfield Road with my steel 95 tank in one hand and ScubaPro regulators in the other...



I have upgraded to Yosemite

02 Jan 2015 06:15:43 PDT

I finally upgraded to OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite from 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I thought Snow Leopard was a nice, stable operating system, once Apple flushed out the bugs. They were thoughtful enough install an announcement background task to give me weekly pop-up spam saying I can upgrade for free. WHO would click on a pop-up advertising free software, first of all? Not I. I had to first determine where the pop-up's were coming from and use my favorite program, Little Snitch, to cut its connection. Really annoying... but not as annoying as Apple actually breaking my system with an iTunes update which corrupted a preferences file. That nuked my USB tethering ability, not that I was using it, but the system was crying for help every few days until I repaired it, thanks to the Apple USER community...



The Four Seasons

27 May 2014 08:01:18 PDT

The concept for The Four Seasons began with with the leaf mask, an icon of The Green Man which appears throughout human history. I combined this icon with that of the wood nymph from Greek and Latin mythology which tickles our imagination...



The Art of the Shave

01 Jan 2014 12:02:59 PDT

There are few things on this planet which is "owned" by men more than shaving. For many of us, it is something we have done every day our adult lives. I remember my first awkward shave, my face full of fuzz, myself still being in Junior High School. I acquired the appropriate tools - a razor and shaving cream, locking myself in the basement bathroom for my first attempt. I was embarrassed that someone would walk in on me and see my awkwardness and inexperience. I survived...



What is an Artist?

26 Dec 2013 08:04:24 PDT

For those of you still reading my blog, you're all probably very bored with the photographs you've been looking at for the past, oh... eighteen months or so. I have been on a journey, a self-wakening, self-education, realization, re-birth - just really, really exciting shit. It all started with the concept, How do I call myself an artist?...



Is it February already?

03 Feb 2013 16:11:37 PDT

I have been working to catch up on my projects and get better focus. My taxes for 2012 are complete and I've finally caught up on all my record keeping paperwork. It's just been a mess between the holidays, fixing my truck, and looking ahead to shows this year at the gallery in Huntington...



Super Storm Sandy

04 Nov 2012 16:01:28 PDT

The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. CNN has stopped covering the recover efforts which are far from over. They are covering the pre-pre-presidential election in the United States. My deepest sympathies go out to Ohio...



Lost Emails

12 Aug 2012 03:45:18 PDT

Due to some high-tech snafu, many of my emails were lost between April and August of this year...



It just works... ? Really?

22 Mar 2012 04:08:34 PDT

Now, if I don't migrate my .me account to "the cloud" I'll loose it shortly. I can't do that unless I'm running Lion on my Mac Mini. Installing Lion will break a lot of stuff and people who have upgraded to Lion hate it. Apple has already announced "Mountain Lion" gawd help me. I would need to upgrade Snow Leopard to the latest OS in order to purchase the electronic version of Lion, but even that has problems since they've integrated an "app store" directly into the operating system...



Banished from Sayville - Gallery Opening July 2012

18 Mar 2012 16:49:52 EDT

Artist reception is Saturday, July 21st 2pm-5pm at the gallery. This is free, open to the public. If you've never been to a gallery opening, my suggestion is to make this your first but not your last. The title of the show is, Banished from Sayville...



New for 2011

23 May 2011 20:08:28 EDT

As Spring arrives, change is in the air. Once again I am looking though this year's photo shoots and have some amazing stuff. All of the new photographs can be found on page 2 and page 3 of the Art Nude section...



Paintings!... sort of

09 Jul 2010 17:27:36 EDT

With a little digital magic I am now offering faux paintings as Giclée prints. Somewhere right now, the owner of Manhattan art gallery is letting out a little gasp...



New images for Summer 2010

05 Jul 2010 10:37:02 EDT

Yet another six months has gone by since my last update. I took advantage of the July 4th weekend to catch up on my paperwork and website updates...



They took our VCR's away

19 Mar 2010 17:56:46 EDT

There was a time when few people could afford a VCR. These magical time machines for television were only available in schools, libraries, and professional video studios...



Digital Infrared Photography

10 Jan 2010 15:32:22 EDT

I have completed the remaining digital infrared nudes from 2009 which can be found in a new section on the website. All images can be purchased as prints or greeting cards...



Many new images for 2010

03 Jan 2010 09:37:26 EDT

It's been six months since my last update. I've been very busy shooting, which leaves me not so much time for editing. With the new year, I spent several days bringing my website back up to speed. Nearly sixty new images have been added...



Apple u suck

01 Oct 2009 07:07:20 EDT

I'm stuck on a Mac with Tiger 10.4 using Windows20000 for my video editing. You software makers are all pathetic...



Summer Updates

07 Jun 2009 13:42:57 EDT

I've added many new images to the nude gallery this month. Check out page 7 for the very latest. Many of the later images are now available for immediate sale...



Prints for Sale again

07 May 2009 17:26:29 EST

Now, you can have just about any photograph you see on this website framed, matted, and ready for hanging in one of seven different papers or two different canvas options. Dozens of mats and frames to choose from and you can see your finished print right on-line before you buy. How cool is that?



Website Overhaul for the New Year

10 Jan 2009 16:22:35 PDT

It seems like just last month I made some significant updates to the website... so, I'm calling this a major overhaul. I have really dusted out the cobwebs in the nude area...



New Book in Publication

31 Dec 2008 04:47:32 PDT

Sometimes I have a project so huge that it cannot be contained within the pages of this website. I am announcing a new photography book entitled "Reflections" 160 pages of full-color nudes...



2009 Website Updates

21 Dec 2008 18:31:27 PDT

I've gotten to a point in my photography from which I didn't have any direction. I felt like I've accomplished everything I set out to do. So, I took a retreat to the Photography Center at Woodstock...



Nude Dance Figure Study

09 Jul 2008 17:09:22 PDT

Here is a project I have been waiting to do all my adult life - Nude Dance Figure Study...



Nudes and Fetish

18 Apr 2008 06:59:31 PDT

You will find new photographs on the last page of the Art Nude section...



What Photography Means to Me

28 Jan 2008 08:29:06 PDT

I cannot relate to photographers who toss out their old Nikon cameras to buy new Nikon cameras because newer models can operate at 5 frames per second instead of 3. Better photographers make better photographs...



Amsterdam Updates

03 Dec 2007 12:55:47 PDT

From Dam Square, adjacent to the Krasnapolsky Nh Grand Hotel is rather depressing looking street by the name of Warmoesstraat, which looks like an alley behind a row of stores. As you walk further North along Warmoesstraat, it explodes into a collection of shops, bars, coffeeshops,...



And now a word about Dutch Mass Transit

01 Dec 2007 10:56:30 PDT

You pay for a strip card or "strippenkaart" in advance, good for one year containing 2, 3, 8, 15, or 45 strips. Then, when you are ready to travel, you punch one more strip than the number of zones you want to travel through...



I Did Glam

13 May 2007 12:44:32 PDT

Personally, I think there's too much "glam" photography in the world and not enough erotic edgy black and white images. Yet, I am motivated since much of the existing web glamour photography really sucks...



Erotic Art Exhibit - The Kinsey Institute for Sex Research

28 Mar 2007 05:20:27 PDT

My photograph entitled "Clouds" will be on display at the 2007 Juried Art Show at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. This show will run through July 20th...



Daylight Savings Time Messed Up My Website

12 Mar 2007 06:04:49 PDT

[Microsoft] will expire your cookies anywhere from 23 hours to 24 hours and 15 minutes - who knows, exactly? That will depend on several other factors: what time of year it is, if we are in Daylight Savings Time, which operating system you are running, and if your system has been "patched."...



Website Update - October

16 Oct 2006 12:07:04 PDT

I have added more photographs of an exciting new model in the Nude Section. This time, we did some body painting. More to follow.



It's Not Too Late! Save Yourselves!

16 Oct 2006 11:36:14 PDT

Often, a model might be more expensive because they've added a new feature which you don't need. For an extra $25, the T3 might be a package deal which includes a CD ROM of software which you will never use. Or, it may just be the market which has driven it up because it's black instead of silver. Black cameras fetch more money on the market because they look cool...



I am done with Microsoft - Hello Apple

13 Sep 2006 10:08:38 PDT

Today, the Microsoft PC platform is as bad as Apple was in the 80's. I cannot purchase games for my computer. Although my computer is over 1000 times faster than the one I used twenty years ago, it's still too slow to run games on.



A Few Words About Content Rating

18 Jul 2006 07:05:54 PDT

While the feds are spending my tax dollars to force me into spending more money to maintain a website which costs me money, I've decided that PICS tags are pretty useless at this point...



This is the future of banking? (a true story)

27 Jun 2006 14:55:11 PDT

Teachers Federal Credit Union opened a branch in Central Islip - a bit odd, since C.I. is not exactly the nicest of neighborhoods, but it's on the way home from work. They've added a coin machine, restricted to banking customers...



Put Money In Hole In Tree

09 Jun 2006 12:38:04 PDT

To take a landscape photograph, A) Load your camera with film B) Step outside C) Depress the shutter. Develop and print as normal...



Fun with Wireless PDA's (T-Mobile MDA)

31 May 2006 10:14:17 PDT

Tell me how a $35/month cell phone contract costs me $60/month. I was bored one day and called Sprint to review my plan. Rather than saving me money by advising me on a plan which suits my needs, they suckered me into a 2-year contract which is nearly twice as expensive as the previous one...



Fun with DSL

05 Apr 2006 07:33:20 PDT

Three solid months of flawless service... until last night when the little red light comes on. My worst nightmares are becoming realized...



New York - A Safe Place To Be

23 Nov 2005 09:05:28 PST

My first visit to California unhappily coincided with the release of the science fiction film Escape From New York. When I spoke with my New Yawk "Hey - howya doin" accent, people looked at me like I was an alien from outer space who had just landed...



The War on Pornography comes to hbutz.com

29 Sep 2005 08:26:28 PDT

Website Update - Landscapes of New England

26 Sep 2005 06:58:44 PDT

I don't really need a camera to have a nice time in New England. The people are wonderful, the food is great, and the scenery is simply gorgeous...



Proud to be Atheist

17 Sep 2005 05:50:13 PDT

I believe there is no god and never was. We live on a godless planet of primitive beings. We are born from the fires of Eat or Be Eaten. While we love nature, we bring our insect repellent and watch out for bears...



Website Update for August

01 Aug 2005 12:26:11 PDT

I've updated my art nude section with some latest photographs of a very lovely model. Be sure to watch the erotica section for more of her in the future...



When will the fun ever stop? - Obscene Speech

27 Jul 2005 10:12:57 PDT

Barbara Nitke is a New York fine-art photographer who specializes in sadomasochistic imagery. In 2001, she filed a lawsuit against the Communications Decency Act's restrictions...



Religion in politics (2257 - the other shoe dropped)

18 Jul 2005 07:50:12 PDT

Many photographers have been 'waiting for the other shoe to drop' after the Attorney General Alberto Gonzales made some clever changes in the child pornography record keeping laws, otherwise known as Title 18 sect 2257...



Click on this disclaimer

15 Jul 2005 13:12:13 PDT

You may have noticed the addition of some annoying disclaimers in the nude and glamour areas. See my rant from June 1st...



Parents - There be nude photos here

25 Jun 2005 17:37:56 PDT

I do not think there is anything wrong with viewing artistic nude photographs of the human body. Some people agree with me. Others do not...



Land Of The Free, Home Of The Criminal Photographers

01 Jun 2005 08:20:03 PDT

I have a legal question for you. Is it possible to be convicted of murder without actually killing someone? The answer is: Probably not.



So Many Lighthouses, So Little Time

22 May 2005 13:58:46 PDT

Landscape photography is so very big. Several times, while photographing the lighthouses of New England, I started with the best of intentions. I would take notes, I tried to spell "Annisquam"... and, I'd give up...



Website Update

31 Mar 2005 08:23:35 PDT

I have added Spring updates to the website, including many new color digital images of a lovely model. Most fell into the "Art Nude" category, but a few are listed under "Erotica."



Help me please - I hate all Opticians!

14 Oct 2004 13:34:45 PDT

In 1862, a man named Snellen devised a testing system to determine people's eyesight. He asked people to stand at 20 feet and through experimentation discovered the smallest sized letter that most people with good eyesight could see. He called this a size 20 letter and the vision was recorded as 20/20...



The answer to the Ultimate Question - Life, The Universe, and Everything

11 Sep 2004 08:52:38 PDT

Is the answer really 42?



Website Update

05 Jul 2004 07:26:01 EDT

I have cleaned up the website this past weekend. Long over-due was a unified file naming scheme to include new additions, such as digital images and landscape images, or digital landscape... I am finding that there's a big world out there, outside of the studio...



New England Website Update 2004

06 Jun 2004 13:28:25 EDT

Yet another successful trip to New England this month to photograph lighthouses, nautical images, and landscape photography...



There IS life on other planets!

20 Mar 2004 21:03:00 EST

There IS intelligent life in the galaxy. You don't need to "believe" in UFO's, Little Green Men (LGM's), or Bigfoot. You just have to multiply a few numbers together to prove it to yourself.



Unified Theory of Physics

10 Dec 2003 19:36:54 EST

Why do they make airplanes out of aluminum instead of lead? Because aluminum weighs less. Why does aluminum weigh less than lead? Because the sub-atomic particles which make up aluminum, the protons, electrons, and neutrons are further apart e.g. it's a less dense of a metal...



Your Photographs Are NOT Safe on a Hard Drive!

23 Nov 2003 11:34:00 EST

When it comes to your digital photographs, prepare for massive and catastrophic failure. CD-R's are extremely cheap when compared to the heartbreak of loosing once in a lifetime memories.



First Solo Flight

20 Nov 2000 20:50:10 EST

Well, it's official. I have earned my wings and am now legal and able to fly in and out of one of New York's 2nd busiest airports...



Are you seeing fuzzy photos?

01 Aug 2000 09:38:29 EST

Do you see fuzzy photographs on this website? Over-exposed? Under-exposed? Poor contrast? The problem may only be...
