Airplanes

Since I was an infant my parents and grandparents would frequently bring me to look at the planes landing at Kennedy airport. They would hold me for hours as I would watch the incredibly loud and smokey jets coming in for a landing.This has always been a warm and favorite memory of mine. When I was older all I would do was build models of planes and read books about them. If my eyesite was better I would have probably have became a pilot. I feel truly blessed to live near Republic Airport where I can see a multitude of airplanes from aviation classics to modern jets. These pictures were taken on my many outings at the airport.

Automobiles

The only thing I loved more than airplanes when I was growing up was my matchbox and hotwheels cars. My mom would always tell me how I would fall asleep clenching a car in each of my hands. I actually still have every toy car that I played with as a kid. Today I am still in to hot cars, except today they cost quite a bit more. Below are some shots of my favorite cars which can frequently be seen at various Long Island car shows.
