Route 116 connects Ridgefield, Connecticut, and North Salem, New York. I drive along it with some regularity. As I enter New York state, I usually admire a barn beside the road. Last time, I did a double take. The doors were open and two naked female manikins looked out.
What would you do? Me, too. I stopped the car, turned around, and went back to photograph the scene.
I learned that Max Tucci lives in a house behind the barn. His grandfather owned and operated Delmonico's fabled restaurant in New York City for 60 years. Max has written a newly released book about the restaurant and his family's history with it. He was waiting for a moving van to take the manikins and the boxes of books beside them to a store in the City for a display about the book.
Good catch, Jack. There seems to be an interesting creature over Max's shoulder.
Good thing you stopped as you got great photos, and a good story. Now I need to find that book as I'm sure it is an interesting story.
A chance encounter turns into good shots.
