At the Fair

The Washington County Fair closed last Sunday…  I spent several hours at the fair over two days, making photographs with the young people at the fair.

Here are a couple of young people I met on the last afternoon of the fair and a couple of the attractions at the fairway.

Fishing with Harry

Harry invited me to go fishing with him this morning along the Battenkill. We brought along the dogs and had a wonderful time before the rain hit….

love the slowness of fly fishing and how much Harry loves it.

He has had a great week on the river, catching fish the last two days in a row… and deepening his relationship with the Battenkill…

march on the battenkill

Came across this quote from Walden by Henry David Thoreau:

“I love the broad margin to my life.”

helpful reminder

consider the richness that comes with broad margins

margins not rigid but porous and expanding…

consider the margins of the battenkill river

early march…

caught in winter with the river and the sky promising spring to come.
