Siren's Song

Washington, Connecticut

At a historical society event yesterday. Keeping the yarn theme going for another day.

Ansonia, Connecticut

The relatively new plastic billboard covers strike me as tacky compared to the old days. If it's possible for a billboard to become more tacky than the base line.

Upstairs, on the Main Street level in this commercial building, there's a pawn shop.

Panel Discussion, Alternate Process Photography

Just a note that there's an interesting video available with folks from the Penumbra Foundation in New York talking about the foundation and its involvement in historical and alternate process photography. If you are curious about the subject, or especially if you'd be interested in hands-on learning about the various alt processes through workshops and other events at Penumbra, the video is worth a look. Disclosure: I teach platinum/palladium workshops there a couple times a year.

Hanging Garden

Ansonia, Connecticut

The storefront seems to be some sort of eastern-style spiritual meditation/yoga center.

Flags and Cat in the Alleyway

Ansonia, Connecticut

The building on the left is an antiques, salvage, and auction place. The alley used to be a walkway through and under the industrial building at the back of the picture. Don't know about the cat.

Looks as though they haven't updated the shop window since July 4.

Hydrant Wearing a Wig

Ansonia, Connecticut

I did a bit of a double take when I saw this, but I quickly realized that it really is a wig left on the cap of the fireplug. I've seen similar wigs—in much better condition—in shop windows many times.

Conference on the Flood Wall

Ansonia, Connecticut

I don't know what these guys are. Vultures of some sort, but very small, I almost mistook them for crows. They appeared disappointed with the prospects for carrion in the area.
