Surprising, the effects of black and white conversions.

If you live in England #10 might mean something else entirely.

Bronze Age

Near noon on a summer day, the bronze handle to the door of the church is warm, as though all the parishioners who have ever entered left evidence of their touch.

Milton Hall, Milton, Connecticut

A nice example of New England architecture; conservative, white, with a hint of ornamentation. This building is only a short walk from “Trinity Church” featured here on June 15, 2020.

Eyesore

Every time I drive past this I say a little curse at the owner of the property for leaving such an eyesore.

FUTILE

A gate is a futile effort without a fence

I was struck with the impression that these three buildings were like Russian nesting dolls, one just fits inside the other.

Fence with irises

Fence with irises© Steven Willard

This is one of those situations where the eye sees differently from the camera. From the car, I saw the white iris blossoms separate from the white pickets and the stone corner post, both of which I have photographed before under different conditions. The trick of the eye, however, was that I managed to isolate the blossoms from the background at least until I got out of the car with my camera and looked through the viewfinder. At that point it was obvious that the blossoms were going to be lost against the background. My eyes had tricked me. It reminded me of all the portraits I had made with phone poles coming out of the subjects heads.

Well, I went ahead and took the picture anyway, knowing that it wasn’t going to work. The strange thing is that It kind of does anyway. That, I didn’t expect. It is as though, being familiar with the blossoms, and the pickets, and the stone, my mind could separate them, make order out of disorder. Does that make sense?

Lunch Break

I just happened upon this scene when all the workmen had taken a lunch break. I rather fancy the pagoda-like quality of the staging, and the way the metal planking bounced light into the shadows.
