Places I'm At Now
A few more pics from this century, and closer to home. These were all already digital, so a lot easier to post.
Golden hour July sun on wildflowers, New Britain Reservoir, Southington, Connecticut. July 5, 2018, 7:32 PM.
No Thru Traffic. Sheffield Street Bridge, Waterbury, Connecticut. October 20, 2020, 5:36 PM. Believe it or not, this wrought iron lenticular truss bridge built in 1884 has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2001. Nobody seems wildly interested in restoring or preserving it. This country has a very spotty record of preserving historic places.

Pine tree and shooting star winter sunset, Mattatuck State Forest, Terryville, Plymouth, Connecticut. February 27, 2018, 5:39 PM. Yes, I know it's really just an extremely short contrail, but it still looks cool.

Nutmeg's nap, Beaver Pond, White Memorial Foundation, Morris, Connecticut. August 1, 2023, 3:25 PM. Hiking with my brother Mike. His girl Nutmeg, still going strong at 13, finds a shady spot for a nap.
