After writing 5,500+ blog posts in a 13-year span – without taking a single day off in that time – there are moments when I might consider bringing in a guest blogger. I’ve done that on a couple of rare occasions, mostly when I feel a good friend of mine deserves to share their information,…Read More

Re-assigning a photo I had scheduled for Altamont 2022.
For me, Competition Season 2022 involves going through all my photos, looking for the ones that will work with the various shows, and hoping I’ll pull a winner out of the mix. Nothing’s guaranteed. And no matter what I consider, Photo X may work at the New York State Fair, but it could bomb at…Read More

What’s Up in the Neighborhood, May 28 2022
Hope everybody is having a fantastic morning. I am … trust me on this. The Patroons won big last night, virtually securing the #1 seed and home-court advantage in the postseason. Plus, last night’s victory was their 21st consecutive home win, only seven victories away from tying their all-time home win streak from the 1990-91…Read More
What is it with Chuck Miller and shooting from the roof??
Maybe it’s just my attempting a new perspective, a new angle, a new tilt with my camera gear. Which would kind of explain why I’m precariously hanging off a roof in the Town and Village of Green Island. Let me explain. Yesterday, the Town and Village held its Memorial Day Parade, which coincided with the…Read More
As Seen from Screven County
The world lost a good man yesterday. Ken Screven passed away. Screven was a longtime fixture in the Capital Region; first broadcasting on WROW radio, then moving to television as a reporter for WRGB. I’ve always felt that he was a good man, a proud man who never shied away from truth. No matter what…Read More
A green treat.
It looks like any normal E-ZPass transponder. But it’s green, man. It’s a green E-ZPass transponder. No, E-ZPass hasn’t come out with a line of transponders that match your car’s paint scheme. And no, I didn’t repaint my old E-ZPass with some leftover spray-on plastic dye. But this little bad boy is going to save…Read More
You mean those spots AREN’T on my camera sensor? Then that means …
In 2017, I captured my first-ever solar eclipse photographs. I drove all the way to South Carolina, and with the help of a special solar filter applied to my camera lens, I captured some sweet eclipse phases. I still have a soft spot in my heart for that image. You know … this one. But…Read More
I see your SOL and raise you a Chuckycoin.
Oh, this is hilarious. Melania Trump, the cross-eyed, raccoon-mascaraed succubus of the former President, is now offering the ultimate in a vanity project. She’s going to sell digital watercolor non-fungible tokens of images of her eyes to willing suckers. Oh, I kid you not. No, seriously. Melania Trump is offering NFT’s of digital watercolor prints…Read More
K-Chuck Radio: No, the worst Christmas songs of all time are…
I was inspired to write this blog after reading a tweet from my friend Jerry Papandrea (he’s the guy who has the DerryX YouTube food channel). Yeah … no. The Santa Claus version by Springsteen has its charm, especially when you realize that Springsteen essentially did a Springsteen-esque version of the uptempo track that was…Read More
