Dynamite Angel, I

Marbledale, CT

A new store celebrated its opening Saturday night, offering "pre-loved & dangerously cute" clothing and accessories. The celebrants fit in well with the decor.

Veterans Day, VI

New Milford, CT

Wednesday evening there were some very different Veterans Day activities on the Village Green of New Milford. The VFW Ladies Auxiliary's Candlelight for a Veteran campaign set out luminaries around the green, each with a veteran's name.

At the same time the Roger Sherman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution staged a ceremony at the newly restored Civil War Memorial on the Green.

Veterans Day, IV

Hartford, CT

Often I find more interest in what goes on before the parade, as groups line up, practice, and sometimes put up with interminable waiting. This parade, held last Sunday, was a big one in terms of participants. It took about two and half hours for all the marchers to pass the reviewing stand in downtown Hartford. But the spectator crowds were sparse, more people marching that watching.

Marching bands often go in for splendid, elaborate uniforms, but the group in the next picture had about the lowest tech outfits you could imagine. Black pants, gray sweatshirt, purple beret. What you see on the float behind the band members is a fighter jet engine manufactured by Pratt & Whitney, a local company.

Waterbury, CT

Years ago, Bill Pierce mentioned to me that he'd always wanted to work up a book project where he'd get his vast array of photographer friends to contribute, "Hey Mister! Take my picture!" shots. Most of these would be of kids, but plenty would show grown ups.

Hooker Day Parade, VII (Finis)

Hartford, CT

The parade ended, fittingly enough, at The Pour House.  A trailer from the Thomas Hooker Brewery brought up the tail of the procession.
