Late August Corn

Woodbury, Connecticut, 8/30/21

It's been a rough season for the local farmers, alternating drought and downpours all summer. The corn looks quite stunted. Hot, humid, and hazy.

Typical August weather around here. Hot and humid, dark sullen skies.

Torrington, Connecticut

People generally plant sunflowers in decorative groups, not a tiny cluster in dense green ground cover. Maybe it seeded itself from nearby.

Dusty Leaves

Waterbury, Connecticut

Walking across the bridge, I wondered why the tree branches overhanging the stream were such a weird light green. The I realized they were thickly coated with dust, even though we'd had rain recently.

Waterbury, Connecticut

The imported wildfire smoke is gone, but it's mid-summer in southern New England and even at 1:00 PM on a fairly clear day the sky is a pale, not deep, blue. This is a corner of a factory complex in the Waterville section of the city that has been vacant or abandoned for as long as I can recall, and I've been making photographs around Waterbury since 1975.
