Finishing My Walk Down Park Road


Kevin is the proprietor of Brick Walk Books and Fine Arts.  He offers an eclectic array of
used books and contemporary art.  I need to come back and 
spend some time looking over the books.


And, Richard is one of Kevin's friends and occasional customers.  Richard is a West Hartford psychotherapist, whose specialty is interpreting dreams.  He often visits Kevin's store
because the environment of books and artwork -- and Kevin's company and
conversation -- are at the same time calming and stimulating.


Bob's family has owned and operated Lane and Lenge florists for decades, originally in
downtown Hartford, later in West Hartford Center, and now on Park Road.


Jesus came from Puerto Rico two years ago.  He is a barista at J. René Coffee Roasters,
a popular artisanal coffee gathering place on Park Road.


Dave owns "fresh ink," a busy shop that does custom screen printing on tee shirts,
athletic shirts, banners and signs.

For some reason your photos are not posting on my computer until I click on each blank spot. Another interesting medley of portraits, people, and occupations. I think along those lines as I am passing stalls at the vendors in Farmers Market but haven't had the foresight to do it on one of our interesting shopping streets. Too busy shopping and eating, I guess. I, of course, LOVE the bookstore's owner and patron. The others you selected for today's gallery are interesting as well.

Thanks again for taking us on Park Road. These men and their shops are great, Jack. Your portraits are always so inviting, so clear and well done that I feel like I'm in there with you.

I could tell Richard about some of my dreams. They are very weird. The portrait of Kevin is my favorite.

Michelle said...

Bob looks quite happy.

Kay said...

Great group of guy shots. I don't need a tee shirt but I'd love a coffee, bouquet, and a nice browse through that bookstore.

Randy said...
