A bit over a week ago, a friend drove the two of us around a small portion of our state. Every now and again it is refreshing to be a tourist in your own area, your own state, on the paths you tread every day. Doing so is like a leaf revealing its colors in the fall.
Therefore, a presentation of totally unremarkable photographs, taken with a small point and click fits in your pocket style digital camera, published here without any adjustments to the originals. In others words (for friends from away) this really is how it looks - as the cheap digital sees it, anyway.
|The pumpkin arrangement honors one of our state's US Senators, currently running for the Presidency.|
|The Connecticut River separates Vermont from New Hampshire - the view is of the New Hampshire side.|
|Route 5 is the old highway that passed through small towns, superseded by an Interstate that passed them by.|
|The village center and Common of Thetford. It's typical of this area - there really isn't any there there. |
Even so, Thetford has a population over 2,600 which makes it larger than my hometown, which had an active Main Street.
|Since the owners were nice enough to perfectly place the pumpkin to balance photographs, |
I couldn't find it in my heart to pass up taking the shot.
|Just a couple of homes to the left of the above.|
|Federal period architecture always gets my attention; the village of Woodstock has it in abundance. |
The main business of the town is a very large, very expensive, Inn owned by the Rockefellers.
p.s. I love the smell of money in the morning.
|Woodstock's in-the-center-of-town covered bridge.|
|Just the side of another building by the Woodstock Common.|
|A hill near Plymouth Notch (which I visited at the beginning of July.)|
|I can't quite remember if this is Echo Lake or Lake Rescue. One follows the other, both alongside of Route 100.|
Here's last Saturday's radio show (October 17th), in which songs were played for autumn, and for the birthdays of big band jazz singer Anita O'Day (Oct. 18th), hot jazz era bandleader leader Roger Wolf Kahn (Oct. 19th), and drummer Cozy Cole (Oct. 17th). The aging mental case who hosts the program forgot to credit the 2nd song after the opening sequence - it was Cozy Cole's All Star Band performing "Just One More Chance".
As always, I hope any listeners enjoy the show.
