Though I am gettung ready to return to my beloved if sad California, I am just now enjoying a Connecticut fall, something I have not done in many years. I have been wandering all over the state trying to capture the moment.

Here are but a few of the shots I have taken over the last couple of weeks:

Mystic Seaport, Connecticut

I spent a lovely Summer Saturday re-exploring a place I had not been in many years, Mystic Seaport on southeat Connecticut. This is one of the finest maritijme museums, if not the finest, in the country. It’s specialty is 19th and early 20th century sailing vesels, including a whaler, the Morgan, which is currently being restored to sailing condition. For the photographer, it is heaven.

1st Congregational Church, Lictchfield, Connecticut

     This is the 1st Congregational Church of Litchfield, CT. It was built about 1820. It replaced an earlier church which burned. The church was organized in the 1720s. It radiates Puritan simplicity. No crosses, stained glass (but for one tucked away in the back of the church and out of the sanctuary). or decorations of any kind are to be found. The architecture, the word and music are all there is and all they desire. The bible in the pulpit is open to the Psalms. I thought I heard the voice of Oliver Cromwell, but that was likely just my imagination … right?

     It is reputedly the most photographed church in New England. If so, I can see why. It is lovely, and unlike many such New England churches, it can be photographed to advantage without a lot of other buildings, power lines etc to obstruct the view.

Here is a gallery including several interiors I took that you might find interesting: http://wilson-of-waterbury-photographer.com/Galleries.html

Well, I’m never going to beat this one …

Golden Gate Bridge on Bright June Day

Everything just came together right on this my last day in San Francisco. The bridge, and this perspective, may be a huge cliche, but I was so proud of how this came out, I just had to post it here. The processing gave it the finishing touch.
