The Coffee

My name is Frank Racioppi.   I am a retired law enforcement officer, having completed twenty-five years of service. I was introduced to photography when I was a young, uniformed police officer and was sent to the FBI School for the basic and advanced photography courses.  At that time, it was the world of film, primarily 35mm photography.  Subsequently, I became a lead forensic criminal investigator assigned to the Major Case and Homicide Squads for eleven years where I utilized and advanced my photography skills further.

My love of photography still grows.  I spend a lot of time in these beautiful Adirondacks which allows me to continue to flourish and expand my creativity.  I am an avid outdoor and wildlife enthusiast, and often spend a significant amount of time - with digital SLR camera in hand  - hiking, fishing and camping.  I also have a love for historic preservation and classic architecture.

This exhibit showcases some wildlife, florals, seasonal, architectural, and whimsical shots - a little something for everybody. My wonderful wife Barbara, who was such an indispensable help to me in preparing the photos and titling them, coined the name of this show:   “Frank’s Mixed Bag”.

I hope you enjoy the photographs and maybe it will stimulate some discussion, opinions and good natured banter. 
Please join me at the “Meet the Artist” reception on Saturday, October 26th from 6:30 - 8 pm at this wonderful gem of a Bistro called the Willows.   Hope to see you then!
