Union City, Connecticut

Tattoo parlors prefer not to display their interiors to the world. I've seen all sorts of opaque window treatments used. In this case, mirror-like plastic film inside the picture window. I wondered whether it might be a one-way material, giving insiders a secret view out to the street, but they weren't open yet so I didn't find out.

Poles and Fences

Waterbury, Connecticut

At different points I seem to get fascinated by common objects that we see all the time but can use as repeat-with-variation elements in pictures. Metal fences and utility poles have been attracting my attention a lot recently.

Water Tower, Two Views

Housatonic, Massachusetts

It's never seemed important to me to find one single, definitive view of a subject. Sometimes I return to the same subjects again and again to find new interpretations. It's OK to see more than one interesting view of a subject and I don't think it's essential to decide which view is best. For that matter, I feel the same way about prints. If I return to a picture I've printed years before, I don't make any effort to print it exactly the same way as before. I look for the best interpretation I can make now, and don't care if it's different. After all, maybe I know a little more about pictures, and printing them, than I did ten or forty years ago.

Litchfield, Connecticut


Litchfield, Connecticut, 9/27/09

I'd planned to shoot at a street fair in Torrington today, but it was rainy and cold so the event was canceled. Fall is rolling in too, and while I was out I got this view at White's Memorial Reserve, shot from exactly the same spot as this morning's post, made last July.

Window Blinds

Torrington, Connecticut

I love it when a purely accidental arrangement is accidentally perfectly designed.

Winsted, Connecticut

Winsted, Connecticut

I've lost count how many pictures of weeds I've used here. I remain fascinated with the way weeds tenaciously advance on urban environments.
