Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Looks a lot like the Dixie Queen. Awesome capture!!

  • Actually I shot the steamboat many years ago while visiting New Orleans and she’s called the Creole Queen. You can just make out the CQ above her and her name is on the bow. I’ve no idea what she’s doin’ on the Hudson!! :-) However I did shot one on the river that day, she was smaller but a steamboat none the less. I just shot her from the top of the hill and the angle was all wrong for this image. Thank you kindly sir, much appreciated, cheers.
