Grassy Knoll Reminder

Grassy Knoll, Southbury, Connecticut

It is hard for me to believe that this November 22nd will mark the fifty-fifth anniversary of John Kennedy’s assassination. We were so naive then.

It might have been Moonglow

Driving home under a full moon recently, I kept looking for a subject to photograph. Whether it was me being tired or my state of mind, the fact was I didn’t see what I was hoping to see. I was a little disappointed, but it is almost always better for me to be moved first by a scene, even if I later manipulate it to look like something only later imagined.

My point here is that while I didn’t manage to make a photograph on that moonlit night, I was moved or maybe even inspired by that drive home. Later, while looking at some older files, I found one I felt I could use to bend to my vision from that night.

Tender Touch

Pond, Bridgewater, Connecticut © Steven Willard

The benefit of living in a place for years is that you get to see the same places under many different circumstances as the light changes with the seasons.

I’ve watched this pond with its surrounding trees as I have driven by countless times, but it was this particular time when the bare branches revealed what I hadn’t seen before; the two trees at the far end reaching out to touch each other. Too much? What do we really know about trees?

Fond Memories

Some images you just like because they bring back fond memories. This photograph was made when my very good friend Dave Woodruff, whom I had known since high school, came for a visit from Austin, Texas. He died, not long after this trip, of brain cancer. He never complained. One of the nicest guys you would ever hope to meet. We were good friends for over fifty years and I still miss him.
