Byron


Byron worked for me three decades ago.  Today Byron is a pastor, owns several investment properties, and is sending his first child off to college.  Nice to see you again, Byron.

Why?

Driving on the highway, I have seen this row of brightly painted doors but I didn't know the location.  


So, on Saturday I went looking.  Found!  But, they seem abandoned.  Another mystery.

Red-tailed hawk


A young red-tailed hawk perched on the top of the perennial garden gazebo in Elizabeth Park.


I wanted to see it fly away but there was thunder and lightning on the horizon,
so I had to leave that for another day.

Dave


Dave's career was in IT at a couple of insurance companies, including MassMutual.
For a while he volunteered at Elizabeth Park.  Now he is a part-time employee.
This week he was tying down the canes on the rose garden arches.


An advantage of shooting with a zoom lens is that I can come in close visually
while maintaining a distance safe for my subjects and myself.

Monique

I ran into Monique as she bicycled through Elizabeth Park.
We caught up about her three daughters and the affairs of the world.


Monique worked with me at my first company and I hired her for my second company.
Today she is a compliance officer for an investment firm in Stamford.

Bruce


Bruce was sitting alone on a bench in the shade on the far side of Elizabeth Park's pond,
smoking a little cigar and thinking deep thoughts.

Flappathon





Most of the time, the Canada geese at Elizabeth Park just float around quietly.
But, from time to time something sets them off and they vigorously flap up a storm.
