A nice place to go on a Saturday

The Mystic Harbor in Connecticut is a wonderful place to go on any day really, but it's a special place on  Saturday because of the many events scheduled on the weekend. Enjoy.

Have a beautiful weekend

Stonington Conn.

This old whaling town in western Connecticut is very charming and trying to hold on to its roots as hipsterization encroaches. It is still a lovely place.

Archival slide scan

This image was made in Atlantic City in the fall of 1976, before the casinos. The beach was empty and still as the bathers had all gone back home.

The seaport area in 1973

The South Street Seaport is one of the most successful restorations in New York. These pictures date from the spring of a973 during the very beginning of  the reconstruction. They were shot on Kodachrome II and scanned. Yes, you could park for $ 1.50 all day in some parking lots in Manhattan in 1973!

Memorial Day

This holiday was originally known as decoration day because it was a day to decorate and take care of the Civil War cemeteries. This photo is from a very small Civil War cemetery and memorial very close to where I live. During the cherry blossom season it becomes quite lovely.
