The new job, and a few trips into New York. Here’s a brief look at what’s caught my attention the past 2 months or so… ~cg.
The grandest room in New York, Grand Central Terminal is 100 years old this weekend. I’ve been following the history and some of the back story of this majestic landmark structure in mid-town Manhattan, and wanted to dig out this image of mine made with the 10.5mm fisheye a few years ago… ~cg. Passengers on […]

Began my sixth season covering Army Football on the 15th. Here’s the best of my take from the game & afterwards… (click the four-way arrow icon below the player at lower right to view the images in full screen mode and read the captions.) ~cg.
Members of the Chester and Winona Lake Fire Departments secure a large Garrison flag that was displayed between two tower ladder trucks after the Patriot Day September 11th. Remembrance at the Orange County Arboretum in Thomas Bull Memorial Park in Montgomery, NY on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. Today is the 11th. anniversary of the September […]
I thought this image kind of worked yesterday. My Nikon D300 with the 10.5mm fisheye. (held at a low angle on the turf). ~cg. Game officials watch a field goal attempt soar through the uprights during Army’s scrimmage in Michie Stadium at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY on Saturday, August 18, […]
The 2010 High School Football season opened tonight, and I drew the Kingston – Cornwall game up in Kingston, NY. Tonight’s game was just as much about the new turf field at Kington’s Dietz Stadium, as it was about Cornwall’s tailback Tyree Smallwood. Smallwood is a bona fide HS star, having already signed his letter […]
It sometimes starts a week earlier for me. The continual over-thinking on how I’d cover a game like this past Saturday’s Section 9 Class AA Championship matchup between undefeated Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick High Schools. It was a repeat of their game a few weeks ago at Monroe-Woodbury HS, when both teams were 6-0. This time […]
Graduating cadets toss their covers skyward during the United States Military Academy 2009 Graduation and Commissioning Ceremony at Michie Stadium in West Point, NY on Saturday, May 23, 2009. 970 cadets received their diplomas and were commissioned as 2nd. Lieutenants in the U.S. Army. Times Herald-Record/CHET GORDON This past Saturday was my third West Point […]
“Up, Up, and Away…” Oh this was sweet! I still cannot muster the words for the hour or so I spent aloft with balloonist Chris Healey for a story last evening. Takeoff (or should I say liftoff) was perfect. Touchdown / landing was like a dream – even in the middle of the street in […]
“Oh Doctor…!” It doesn’t get much better than this on our end. Army vs. Air Force in a battle of the two military academies here at West Point yesterday. Beautiful crisp Fall day. Two remote cameras. A 12 noon kickoff time. Actually I treated this game as more like a prep for the upcoming annual […]
Today was a special day for making images. Spent a few hours on a story about a 16 year-old flight student, who I later learned is also a concert violinist. Sharp kid. The reporter and I would be following in a second, larger airplane, so I could make images of her flying her small two-seater. […]
The weather’s finally getting better, and so are the sports assignments. Here are a few favs from this past week, both at the college & HS levels. *(read more about my philosphy on shooting sports here from an earlier post): http://chetgordon.blogspot.com/2007/08/my-thoughts-on-photographing-sports-or.html
Here’s a look at the first week of the New Year. Considering I worked both Christmas Day & New Year’s Day, how would one know the difference when the holidays have passed anyway…? A New Year’s Day snowstorm hit our area again. An injured NYC firefighter returned home after rehab for his injuries from a […]
8:45PM. I’m starting with this image and how I covered the Army – Navy Football game. After a long, cold day at the ballpark in Baltimore, MD, I ran into these Hispanic workers using leaf blowers to clean the stands. That obviously meant I was in the stadium way too long after a 12 noon […]
