Rising Fog

Derby, Connecticut

11:50 AM, the old railroad bridge and current road bridge across the Housatonic River between Derby and Shelton.

Frozen swamp areas in O'Sullivans Park at the junction of the Housatonic and Naugatuck Rivers.

Ice fishermen.

12:30 PM back at the bridges.

Milan, New York

The place was a nightclub, sort of in the middle of nowhere, closed now. The building probably started out as something else.

Hurry Past

Red Hook, New York

In front of the Village Municipal Building, so appropriately in the "real life" side of town.

One Direction, or the Other

Red Hook, New York

The distribution of businesses in Red Hook—bars, restaurants, stores, realtors, etc.—doesn't bear any resemblance to the sign's indications.

Cornfields in Snow

Warren, Connecticut

Monday it warmed up enough for fog to rise from the snow. Soft, misty conditions prevailed under a heavy overcast sky all day long.

Branding that may not take off like a rocket.

Signs of the Times: Women's March and Rally, Hartford, CT, 1/20/18

Hartford, Connecticut

The marchers and assembled crowd looked even bigger than last year's event at the Connecticut state capital. The mood seemed angry, defiant, and yet upbeat at the same time. The signs were varied, but unified in viewpoint.

Waterbury, Connecticut

Yellow, yellow, blue—the piled up dirty snow caught my attention but didn't seem too promising a subject, until the school bus rolled through the nearly deserted parking lot.

Bring Distant Points of Interest Within Close Range with the Use of this Machine

Milford, Connecticut

The twenty-five cent charge surprised me—that's what I recall public binoculars cost way back when I was a kid. They were much more common back then, seemingly at every "point of interest," but I rarely see them today. Not much would have been revealed through the mist this morning, but on a clear day it should reveal a thin strip of Long Island.
