Weeds and Meat

Woodbury, Connecticut

According to a search, this weird little poster could be promoting a method of injury treatment, "Movement Exercise Analgesia Treatment," or it could be one of several entities encouraging the consumption of animal products. My guess would be the latter. Oh, also some organizations promoting consumption of animal product alternatives...

iPhone Platinum Print?

I have a new post up at The Online Photographer. It describes what goes on in one of my "digital platinum" workshops at The Penumbra Foundation, and a great idea one of the participants had at the most recent one.

Here's A Link to the Article.

Weeds with Storm Coming In

Torrington, Connecticut

As I stepped into the street to find the right framing for this scene, a young woman who had been walking up the sidewalk and entering a hairdresser shop on the right stopped and asked why I was taking a picture of her car. I told her it was the giant, fantastic weed I was really interested in, and surprisingly she seemed to think that made perfect sense. She nodded, then asked if I would like her to move the car out of the way for me. I thanked her, but said it was just fine right there.

Winsted, Connecticut

Along the Mad River

Winsted, Connecticut

Two rivers meet at Winsted, the Mad and the Still. Both powered a variety of mills and factories, making this a 19th century manufacturing center. Some of the old buildings still stand, and some are being refurbished as commercial and loft spaces.

Weeds, with Vintage Lincoln

Canaan, Connecticut

Bike with a Cause

Rhinebeck, New York

The crazy color combination led me to snap this bike and its wet, green surroundings in amazingly muggy weather last Friday. It wasn't until I looked at the downloaded file onscreen and went to 100% view to check sharpness that I realized why the rear tire was shocking pink.

Wind Power

Winsted/Colebrook, Connecticut

Something new, a sizable wind turbine installation in the northwest corner of the state. Wasn't there the last time I drove through.

Flag Shadows

Waterbury, Connecticut

Blue Boat

Derby, Connecticut

It's only a five minute walk to the public boat launch area where the Naugatuck empties into the Housatonic River, but I don't think this craft is going to make it.

Street Scene

Torrington, Connecticut

We're having an impressive weed season in Southern New England. I was finding a good angle for the hydrant and tall weeds when a car and a pedestrian entered the scene.
