Not so fortunate were folks living in New York and New Jersey who really got the brunt of it.

I thought I'd tell you about one of the things my brother is doing and share it with you. I am not affiliated with St. Bart's Church in NYC, but my brother is a member. Since his semi-retirement he has also become quite a good amateur photographer. I'm really impressed with what he has been doing - he has a great eye for composition and has made some truly remarkable images. He has always been a meticulous and detail oriented person, so it was natural I suppose that after a stellar career in media and technology consulting that he would be good at whatever he put his mind too.
Well, he approached St. Bart's with the idea of putting together a calendar of photographs of this gem of Byzantine art and architecture as a fundraiser for the church. 50% of all proceeds will go towards helping victims of Hurricane Sandy. The calendar includes photographs by my brother and I believe 3 other photographers/members of St. Bart's. The beautiful calendar he designed is now available for $17 + shipping and handling - Click here for more information.
