Optimistic

Optimistic, Woodbury, Ct.

This is a local example of someone being overly optimistic about what one person can accomplish with little money and only so many hours in a day. It’s amazing how much one person can do, but not surprising that he died before he was able to finish.

Rocks under wraps, Roxbury, Connecticut

Stone masons worried that their materials would freeze together covered them just before a recent snow. Good timing.

Family of Birches

I have been keeping my eye on this copse of birches for several years, sometimes driving out of my way to see how the light was falling on them. Finally everything came together one late afternoon when the sun came streaming in beneath some grey clouds. I chose a longish lens to “compress” them, and am happy with the result. Persistence paid off
