Winter

Maybe it's the loneliness of the bench buried in the snow, but this image makes me long for summer more than any other image I have taken this winter.

Connecticut Looks More Like Alaska

My hometown is extremely picturesque in the classic New England style - beautiful town green, iconic churches that span hundreds of years, miles of Connecticut shoreline, and can be very pretty to shoot with a fresh snowfall.

This winter has been terrible: when we haven't been getting snow by the foot, we've been getting record-setting Arctic temperatures. As a result, I haven't felt like shooting outside much at all. Yesterday was an exception. After getting another 6 inches of snow Saturday night, the sun came out, and the temperatures almost hit 40. You know it's been too cold if 40 degrees feels like a relief.

This is the pier at Gulf Beach, which I have shown here in warmer months, looking like it's on the coast of Alaska rather than the Connecticut Shore

This looks more like Alaska than Connecticut...

Foran High vs. Jonathan Law - High School Basketball Doubleheader

I really like this trend of having intra-city rivals playing each other in doubleheaders featuring both the girls and boys squads. It creates a fun atmosphere, and I hope it continues. Friday night, I went to Jonathan Law high school to shoot the second such doubleheader this season featuring Law and Foran High. Unfortunately, I only made it for the last few minutes of the girls' game, which Law won, 58-40. In the second game, Foran High ran out to an early 21-7 lead in coasting to a 66-58 victory.
