Pics of the Season

Well, a new roll of film has come back, and your itinerant photographer hastens to share with you some of the results. As always, you are reminded to click on the picture to get the full effect. Where to begin?

OK, how about the Stanwich Inn, which was a feature of the Historical Society walk last Saturday. Originally, the inn was right by the roadside, but an errant motorist whose car wound up on the front porch persuaded the then-owner to move it back a bit.

As long as we're talking about last weekend's walks, let's see what the Land Trust's magic meadow off Round Hill Road looks like:

Very pretty, no? And unless you get out of your SUV, dear reader, you will never see sights such as these.

Here are a couple of pics of Sabine Farm, erstwhile seat of the Fisher family, inter alia:

Looks as though the gizmo (a plow? a harrow? a thingamajig?) hasn't been used in some time.

Even the downtown area is gorgeous at this time of year. Witness the view looking towards the Old Town Hall from the lawn of the Havemeyer Building:

Well, that's enough for now. Remember to climb out of your car, dear reader, SUV or Prius or rattletrap as the case may be, and take time to enjoy the beauty of Maytime while it lasts - which, alas, will not be for long.

Yes, Klem, my picture-taking MO is somewhat archaic, I admit. I go to the drugstore and buy a disposable camera for $12 (27 pictures) which includes free processing (a $10-12 value), so essentially the pics are free. And, of course, no capital outlay on buying a "real" camera.

I also splurge and spend $2-3 on a CD, which is how I upload them to the Internet. Low-tech, to be sure, but it works for me. And if you click on the pictures, you'll see the quality is really quite good. Nary a pixel to be seen.

Love your pics of Wilts! Makes me homesick for England's green and pleasant land. Post more, please!
