In the Spring of 2014, I started assembling photobooks featuring images of various aspects of the Stockade and life along the Mohawk River. Below are descriptions of each with links to the Shutterfly website, where you can “preview” a book in its entirety (without purchasing it). Viewing the photobooks is better if you click the fullpage button.
Don’t miss my special “photo-haiga” book “Haiga on the Mohawk“, which has 37 photos with linked haiku poems.
My goal is to have you enjoy the Stockade images (and stories), not to sell books. However, if you would like a printed version, you might want to know that each book is 8×8 inches, with either twenty, 24, or 32 pages of photos inside; they come in hard and soft covers. I do not receive any of the proceeds if you buy one of the books from Shutterfly, whose regular prices are high by my standards. I will, however, provide them to Stockade lovers, friends, fans and neighbors at my cost to have them printed (using available discounts and coupons) if they contact me directly.

I will add preview links on this page for any additional photobooks that I compile, so please come back occasionally to check for new compilations.
Click this link for a page-by-page preview of “After Irene, A Stockade September“: the many moods of September 2011 in the Schenectady NY Stockade“, a 32-page photobook that chronicles a particularly interesting month in the Stockade. September 2011 started with clean-up after flooding caused by the Tropical Storm phase of Hurricane Irene, followed by more flooding due to heavy rains from Tropical Storm Lee, which did not prevent the traditional Outdoor Art Show two days later; the second half of the month brought a dreamy foggy morning, and a non-traditional Walkabout day that ended in a gorgeous sunset.
Click the following link for a preview of “Grave Beauty: Cemeteries in the Schenectady Stockade“, which features the cemeteries of St. George’s Episcopal Church and 1st Presbyterian Church, which grace our Stockade neighborhood.
Click this link for “Jamming on the Mohawk : ice floes and jams along the Mohawk River near the Schenectady Stockade.” It has icy images taken from 2009 through 2013 along the Stockade section of the Mohawk and in Riverside Park.
And, click the following link for a preview of the 3rd edition of my very first photobook: “Valentine Flamingos in the Schenectady Stockade: whimsy and mystery at Lawrence Circle” (3rd Edition, 2016). The 20-page book follows eight years of the pink flamingo Valentine tradition and mystery at Lawrence Circle in the Stockade, with 50 photos.
