Heading South

I left Hartford early on Thursday, in light rain.  (This is a windshield shot in western Connecticut . . .
shhhh!)  The sun came out in Pennsylvania but rainclouds resumed in Virginia,
where I stopped for the night.


I always intended to show these nice Hartford women from the summer, but there was never a time.


Claire is a graffiti artist who demonstrated her work at the
Pump House Gallery in Hartford's Bushnell Park.


Mary is a graduate student at University of St. Joseph in West Hartford.  She is the graduate assistant for Women of Wellness, a group of student leaders that develops programs to create awareness and promote physical and mental wellness.  Photographed in -- where else? -- Elizabeth Park.


And Rondelynn is co-owner of Niro, a boutique on Pearl Street.

Safe travels. I know the road well. We always stop in Va. too. But you have further to go. Drive safely.

Safe travels.
What a shame. Will you miss Hartford in all its snowy splendor?

Sharon Anck said...

Wonderful portraits! I can see those fall colors creeping into the scenery in your windshield shot. Hope you had a safe journey.
I'm all moved into my new place but I am surrounded by boxes everywhere. It really will take weeks to get this all sorted out.

Ah, the ladies do look as though they enjoy posing for you! What a clever devil you are!! Great captures as always! Hope you have a safe trip back to Florida!! I'm certain you won't miss the snow and the cold of winter in Hartford!! Have a safe trip!!

Why head south at all when there is such beauty in the north?

You always seem to find the pretty ladies, Jack!

John pretty much asked the question I would have! Terrific portraits, Jack.

With gals like this in Hartford I wonder why you are leaving. :)

Michelle said...

A nice mix of female artists. Do enjoy your warm winter :)

Love the hint of fall color in your (non) driving shot. Nice portraits. I especially like the one of Rondelynn. She looks like a very proud boutique owner. Drive safely.
