Hole in the Wall Gang camp

Paul Newman was a great actor, perhaps the best of his generation. But he was an even greater humanitarian. There is no better proof of this than his Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a beautiful Connecticut setting that he founded for kids with serious illnesses to go have a good time just being kids. Named after the gang of thieves in his blockbuster movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the facility is normally closed to the public. One day as I was driving by, the gate was left open and I could not help myself but run in and take a few shots. It is truly a stunning place!

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photo selections. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

    • Thank you so very much! I was lucky to get the perfect day and to be honest even I was surprised when I saw the shot. “Me?!?!? I took that?!??! Must be a mistake,” I thought. 🙂
