Greeted at the door wearing a face mask with hand sanitizer. It’s hard to feel welcome. This is Rhinebeck, New York today, streets blocked to make space for merchants to bring their goods outdoors and restaurant tables out on the sidewalks.

I have no recollection about the front of this building, it left no impression on me, but I do remember thinking when I saw this array of meters that there must have been a lot going on here at some time. I’d like to go back sometime to see if I could get inside for some photography.

The town mows this field to the edge of a small hillock that separates it from the woods that grows on the other side of a river. It’s there that Nature is allowed to do as it chooses.

Curious that on a recent trip to the garden center what I found most interesting was the roof of the greenhouse.

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.

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