Guest Photographer: Bushnell Benches

My daughter Susie lives in London these days.  She grew up in Hartford and was back in Hartford last week.  She has offered some photographs for this blog.

I missed the storm last week that added a lot of fresh snow to the snow that was already on the ground, but Susie was there soon after.  Some of you outside the snowbelt wanted to see what it looks like these days in Hartford.

Here you see benches in Bushnell Park in downtown Hartford.

See, I knew you were buried in all that new snow! That's such a "Minnesota feeling!"

Susie has a good eye! I really like the second picture, especially-- looking down that long row of snow-covered benches.

Your photos today are pretty much the opposite of the one I posted on my site today. Brrrr.

I can see why no one is sitting on them! I like that first one.

She has a great eye for that sort of detail. Nice photos (I'm jealous that she lives in London too!).

I have a feeling that these may end up on an Italian blog they are so gorgeous!

Jacob said...

Kudos to Susie! What a family! Two great photographers, at least. That first shot is terrific. Glad the snow is up your way, though!

Thanks for your kind comment on CK today.

That is buried in snow. I kept looking for the seat.... We are due for more snow this week, but not that much.

Randy said...

Wow that is alot of snow. It reminds me of my first snow here when I first moved to Santa Fe.

Just fabulous and how nice to see that the apple did not fall from the photographer's tree!

Any chance you daughter let me use one of these for my benches blog?

Susie said...

Hi VP, you're welcome to use the photos if you'd like. Thanks for asking!

I do like that first one. Can summer really be on the way? Sometimes, I wonder.

I like your daughter's eye for photography. An excellent guest for HDP.
