Reflections off Sherwood Mill Pond

While traveling through Westport one evening, I stopped to photograph and capture the reflections off Sherwood Mill pond. This shot was featured on the WestportNow website in September. WestportNow is Westport, Connecticut’s 24/7 news and information source, offering insights into Westport-related news and news of interest to Westporters. It attracts more readers on a weekly basis than any other print or online Westport-based publication.

Maplewood at Stony Hill Groundbreaking Ceremony

On a crisp fall morning, Barry A. Hyman was honored to photograph the groundbreaking ceremony of Maplewood Senior Living’s property in Bethel, Connecticut called Maplewood at Stony Hill. The property will include 84 units and be fully dedicated to offering memory care. The building will consist of a mix of studio and one-bedroom apartments, and it will also be home to multiple, distinct “neighborhoods” for those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

A post about a post

This architectural detail showed up recently when I was photographing a home in Darien Connecticut.

A photo a day, eh?

Well here goes!

Just back from Tulum,,  although we did take a lovely side trip to Valladolid, Mexico.  Folks were way cool as we walked around and took some photos!

Kroon Hall

Sometimes a building is just too pretty to pass up. Kroon Hall, home to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies is just such a building.  Here is one view I shot earlier this month,  I plan to go back through the seasons.

Here's a link out the Design page on the Yale website.

iPhone 5!

So it looks like I've succumbed to the inevitable and bought an iPhone 5.  It makes sense, I get this one, Leslie gets my 4s and so on down the line.  But I could not bring the phone into rotation without taking a nice photo.  I had a vision, the old with the new, perhaps something off of an aged piece of wood, the type one no longer finds, 8" maybe 10" wide.  So I called my friend John Dumke, a local builder and owner of Sterling Builders, here in Westport.

 We worked with some wood he had in his barn.  The shots were nice, but not what we had hoped.  What I didn't know was that John is quite the Art Director.  He suggested we work with one of his old tool boxes.  Took the tool box, put it on the wood plank, tweaked the lighting just a bit.  I think to a fine result.
