Ansonia, Connecticut

This outdoor advertising campaign might be a little more convincing if the billboards didn't show the same model pretending to be your local, loyal, service station owner in widely disparate locations. Loyal? I dunno. Local? Not so much.

Walgreens I

Seymour, Connecticut

I photographed this building from approximately the same position twenty-five years ago, using 4x5 color negative film. The ownership has changed repeatedly in the meantime and there have been a couple face-lifts, but the structure remains fascinating.

More new work over at The WPII Blog, and also at The Public Eye Blog.

Red, White, and Blue

Torrington, Connecticut

Joel Johnson, a long-haul trucker at home one recent Sunday afternoon. He's with his dog ("she's been all over the country" with him) and his big rig semi-tractor. He's having new text applied under the flag on the back of the cab: TAKING AMERICA BACK ONE TRUCK AT A TIME.

Requiem for a Donut Shop

Torrington, Connecticut

While not a frequent customer, I've bought a bagel here once in a while, and they were always excellent. It isn't any lack of quality that closes the place.
