Recent Photographs: all photographs © 1969-2020 by Carl Weese
I only recently found your blog by reading about it in The Online Photographer. I really enjoy your pictures. I've been following your posts from your recent trip through the midwest and can related to a number of your pictures. I lived in Ohio and Michigan for close to 30 years before moving here to CT. Thanks for sharing.
Ed, glad you found the blog and enjoy the pictures. I find the midwest to be visually fascinating, probably because I've always lived in the northeast. The shape of the land, the architecture, the layout of the towns, all of it is really different.
I found out after moving back to CT just how varied and interesting the landscapes and towns are here in New England. I missed the mountains and rock formations found here as well as the seascapes when I lived out in Michigan. Having grown up in NJ, I feel a little more at home here.
Ed, that's why I find the midwest so interesting, because the landscape is so, hm, simplified compared to what I'm used to. BTW, I've been in western CT since the mid-seventies, but grew up in Roseland, NJ, in the fifties and sixties.
Small world. My hometown is Maplewoood. Not far from Roseland at all. I too am a product of the 50's and 60's.
Small world, indeed, Ed. Not only did I spend the daytime hours of eight years in South Orange, directly on the border of Maplewood, at the Seton Hall campus, years before that I spent many Saturday mornings at an indoor rifle range in Maplewood.
