A Walk in Ansonia, Part One

Ansonia, Connecticut

The train station. The flood wall is to keep the Naugatuck River from inundating the town as it did in the great floods back in the 1950s.

A wall that used to be overgrown with climbing vines.

Another wall, with history. Some sort of small utility box in the middle. On the left a bricked in basement window. On the right, a bricked in coal delivery chute.

Wonderful muted contrasts of colors. (Having even more sidewalk might increase the diagonal's effect.)

On that last one my view camera habits kicked in—I got down on one knee and turned on the full information viewfinder to get the camera precisely plumb and level. I wanted to register the steep incline of the hillside the structure is built into, but get it accurately.
