Three Months! That’s how long it’s been since I took a serious photograph or put fingers to keys to write for this blog. It’s been a busy spring/summer. Work and its usual ninety minute (one-way) commute have been a big part of the gap in creativity – long workdays and full weekends haven’t surrendered much time for picture taking. That will change as the more comfortable, and picturesque fall season starts to take hold.
Julie and I were able to take a day this past weekend and head to Hartford to kill three birds with one stone:
- Grain for another batch of “home brew” – more on this in another blog post – most definitely creative;
- A recon of a restaurant supply store we’ve been wanting to check-out; and,
- A stroll (with camera) through the “Ancient Burial Ground” in Hartford – 1640’s through the early 1800’s.
Our children have always thought it peculiar that we both like strolling colonial burial grounds but as you may know from reading my previous post about stone carving we find it relaxing and enjoyable. In any event I hope the day trip was sufficient to kick start my photography into the fall season – high on my list this fall are waterfalls particularly in the Catskills in New York and Berkshires of Massachusetts as well as tracing the footsteps of some of the Hudson River School painters through the Catskills.
