Even on a hot summer day this place isn’t all that inviting.

It’s the kind of scene most people drive by without a glance, but I can’t resist stopping to make a few exposures. I’m drawn to the textures of such images, and the breadth of tones.

An end to house and tree

The tree just gave up and died, the house is for sale and will likely be torn down; it sits an a beautiful piece of land between Woodbury and Washington, Connecticut. The tree will be removed to make way for a much grander house. I’m not sure which affects me more.

I wrote about the house on my personal blog here https://stevenwillardimages.wordpress.com.

Leftovers

Leftovers, Woodbury, Connecticut

Cleaning up around the place and happened upon these remains from last year. I thought about rearranging them, but in the end I simply made a couple of exposures which I tried to develop to look like a platinum/palladium print using Snapseed on my iPad.

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.

I had to turn the car around for this. It reminded me of riding my bike down sun-dappled streets as a kid.
