In October 1987 a friend and I took a trip to New England to see the Fall colors. We rented a car in Massachusetts and drove up Vermont and down New Hampshire, staying in B&B’s all the way. All of the pictures that I took were on film, and the snapshots have been in a scrapbook for 22 years — except for this one, which I blew up and had framed because it was my favorite.
Just recently, I ran across the scrapbook and found all of my negatives, neatly stored in their individual envelopes, so today I went to CVS and had all of my New England pictures put onto a CD. Not all of them are suitable for sharing on redbubble, but, as I go through them I will be posting quite a few.
This one was taken on the grounds of the estate of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the celebrated sculptor, in Cornish, NH, technically in his back yard. There is something about this lane running between two rows of birch trees that draws me to the light in the clearing at the end. I do not know what awaits there, but it looks like a lovely place to be.
Here is a snapshot of the framed picture that hangs on my bedroom wall. I still love it as much as the day I snapped the shutter on my camera.
