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.

Trinity Church

I don’t think one has to be religious to appreciate the design of Trinity Church located in the hamlet of Milton, Connecticut. Designed by architect Oliver Dickson, construction of this Greek Revival church was begun in 1802 and completed in 1826. The church houses an organ that was installed in 1823, making it one of the oldest in New England.

Fence with irises

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.

Memorable Memorial Day

No parades this year, but a lovely afternoon to be outside and maybe wet a line in a nearby creek.

I hope you are all well.

When you hear voices*

When you hear voices what do they say?

 

Do you listen or not?

Are they whispers or shouts?

Are they questions or answers?

When you hear voices what do they say?

I needed some air!

I finally managed to get out of the house today for some fresh air and sunshine. It felt wonderful.
