Sky Writing

Niantic, CT  2017

I wasn't sure if I could capture this or not.  Skywriting has come a long way from the time when a single plane or two would do acrobatics to write out messages in the sky.  Now five planes flying in formation actually create a huge, flying dot-matrix printer in the sky, releasing perfectly timed puffs of smoke to form the letters.  This skywriting is common along the the Connecticut shore in the summertime and advertises one of the huge Native-American owned and operated casinos located near by, The Mohegan Sun.

Crepes

Niantic, CT  2017

I never knew one could get crepes served in so many different ways.  This was just one of several food vendors at the recent "Celebrate East Lyme" fair here.

Birch Trees

Gorham, NH  2016

Birch trees were made to be photographed using black and white film, don't you think?   One problem  I've run across with using film is that I tend to forget to finish the roll in a timely fashion.  This image sat in my Pentax ME Super for a year until I finally got around to finishing the roll and had it processed.

The Morgan in Black and White

Mystic Seaport, 2017

For a change of pace, I like to shoot black and white film from time to time.  Scenes around Mystic Seaport just look right when shot in Black and White.

Win This

New London, CT  2017

I saw this Mustang at a couple of festivals this year.  It was being raffled off as part of a fund raiser for a local Lion's Club.  I have a hard time believing this car is already considered to be a "classic" or "antique", since I was young teenager, just becoming interested in cars when the Mustang was introduced.  I even learned to drive a stick shift in my father's Mustang.  I almost bought a raffle ticket.
