Wouldn’t you like to have a quiet spot just big enough for one comfortable chair and a lamp to read by? Close enough to walk to easily, but far enough that you won’t be distracted by everyday stuff. No phone alllowed!

Didn’t get the memo

Seems like there is always one guy who didn’t get the memo.

I Remember

How we work today © Steven Willard

I remember when a scene like this was unusual. The lone individual sitting at a restaurant table might read the newspaper (remember those?) or sometimes a book (remember those?) but rarely did you see someone working. Now we think nothing of it.

The fellow in this photograph didn’t know I was taking his picture, but we did strike up a conversation and have since become friends. He likes the picture because it doesn’t reveal too much of him. I disagree, I think it tells quite a lot.

I had been waiting for just the right light for this image, soft morning fog seemed like just the thing.

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
