More photos from the town and shops of Essex, Connecticut taken during our spring outing. I hope you enjoy them!

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 spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photos selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

  1. OH – WOW ! ! These images, so beautiful. The over-used (by me) word “transcendence” comes to mind as I gaze into these wonderful photographs. Ones that really stood out: the Putnam train cars; the view of the sky / trees through the white (trellis? I’m showing my ignorance); and the bottles of oil in the shop.

    • T, thank you so much! I am SO, SO glad that you liked the trellis shot. I love that shot and it’s the type of one that when my wife looks at it (she does 99% of the photo choosing) it doesn’t do anything for her and says that it’s a “me” type of shot and to keep it if I want it. I always feel guilty keeping it and now I feel vindicated! Thank you!! 🙂

    • Thank you! It is a cute little place, not the least of which is because of several good restaurants. (I believe in the “tourism on your stomach” approach to travelling! 🙂 )

      If ever you get a chance to go there, I’d recommend it highly.

    • It was pretty odd, I admit…something like you’d expect to see in London during the plague years. On the other hand, there is no record of plague in Essex so maybe it’s working. 🙂
