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

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.

Meeting on the campus of Fairfield University, the Trumbull High School and St. Joseph High School boys and girls basketball teams took to the hardwood at Alumni Hall as the two cross-town rivals participated in the Officials vs. Cancer Battle for Trumbull doubleheader.
The Eagles came out victorious in both games, as the boys team upended the Cadets 72-60. On the girls side, Trumbull pulled away late and won 44-34.

Jonathan Law’s Erin Saley scored 26 points on Wednesday night, but it wasn't enough to keep the Eagles from losing to Daniel Hand from Madison, 63-52, in an SCC game in Milford.
