A Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, from around 1962, that just happened to be in the neighborhood. R-Rs first blipped onto my radar screen in the mid 60’s via the television show Burke’s Law. This car reminds me of our family car back then – a 1951 Dodge (and really I understand your amusement). That Dodge was one of the first automobiles I photographed, with a Kodak Instamatic, my first ever camera.

These guys are staying in practice or have a sense of humor … or both.

Beautiful car to be sure, but there are a few other things I might like to do with an extra $80K or so.

Offseason, Westbrook, CT

January 14, 2017

The joint is jumping in the summer, but come the offseason, not so much.

Today I was talking about FL with a Tai Chi classmate (local Y, great class) who was telling stories of Key West: ” You have to bring another liver…”

It’s that time up here in New England when we start dreaming (and talking) about white sandy beaches and warm breezes (even though it was in the mid-50s a couple of days ago).

Headlights, Johnson, VT

November 2, 2016

headlights-8760 Night falls quickly in mid autumn here; the extended twilight – so sublime just three months ago – barely remembered.

Now, there’s a chill in the air before the sun even sets, and we readily head indoors – to light and warmth – ceding the dark to what roams the night time vastness of northern New England.

But oh our wild hearts! And so we are bound, to pause at the door and reach back to the landscape, for all those things a hearth and home simply cannot contain.

Home and Away, Dorset, VT

home-and-away-8867

There are any number of mobile homes, trailers and campers scattered across the north country landscape, though perhaps fewer than a decade ago. Many of the larger ones appear to be primary homes. The smaller ones seem only intermittently used: weekend getaways or hunting camps. This one looks to be a vintage Airstream Travel Trailer, ready for the open road.
