Early spring traveling on Rt. 87 Lebanon this day by car to the darkroom at Photosynthesis but my mind wanders to my youth as I would ride this road on my bike with friends from Coventry we would set out to explore sometimes riding 20 – 30 miles in a day. A new pond to skip rocks across, streams and big hills to race down fearless immortal kids. Fifty years later to the Lab, ten or so years ago to The Centennial Theater for summer theater dress rehearsal in Simsbury to photograph.
Yesterday hoping for an image or two between the rain drops or on the way back to chase the Golden Hour of late light. But there was no between the raindrops or Golden Hour. There was a visit with Carl and Maarit that made the sun shine within and the conversation with Tiana sharing her youth and dreams with us three sharing stories of youth and dreams. I told her I never thought I would be photographing barns but now as I think of being a kid in Coventry playing in haylofts the circle seems obvious. enjoy pjc
Eleven am or so the morning fog lifted and the temperature jumped from low eighties to low nineties in the blink of a shutter. The weather didn’t dampen the spirits of those gathered for the wedding . I can’t say the same for the shirts LOL but after a short beautiful ceremony everyone retreated to air conditioning and cool drinks. On the way out I shot this back lit tree cool, comfortable in the shade of the leaves warm, sunny at the top. The tree was happy and so were the Wedding couple and their guests. enjoy pjc
