    Nice Foundation: Obviously the remains of a once-fine barn that was burned, torn or fell down, I wondered what it looked like. Posted signs kept me from investigating it up close today.

    I looks like someone is making an effort to preserve the foundation.

    Messing With Atmospherics: This picture was one of several taken of a beaver pond at high noon several days ago The purpose of the shoot was to have photos of a beaver pond where I could more easily mess with the atmospherics. By atmospherics I mean sky/clouds and their reflection in the water, air (haze, fog, water vapor, etc.) and light. The intention for the image was to make a dramatic change and that meant a sunset (or sunrise, if you wish).

    I will try more later and probably pick the best one to enlarge into a wall picture.

    Not The Most Interesting Bridge, But: This was not a pic for any bridge thread.

    What I liked was the stream underneath, which is really an upper part of the Quinapoxet River, one of several, major water sources for the Wachusett reservoir.

    No, sorry. Too much time schmoozing with the Boeing guys.

    Exploring An Old Mill Ruins: Well, that was the intent, pulling up to where it was this week.

    [​IMG]

    Once off the bike, I noticed some guy up on the ruins, acting very much like a tweaker and looking like someone fully junked up on meth. So, I decided to stay on the road, take several pics and ride on.

    [​IMG]

    The guy hid when he saw me with a camera.

    Lollygagging At Library: That would be in front of the Princeton, MA, library where I stopped in for a short bit.

    [​IMG]

    Some of the library folks had been very helpful in some of my historical quests. Below is another view from atop the hill.

    Classic Old Schoolhouse? I think that's what this building is but have lost track of any notes I might have had from previous ride-bys. It doesn't look like a church

    [​IMG]

    Today is was the first time I've ridden by when there weren't cars and trucks parked here.

    [​IMG]

    I really have to do some research on this beautiful old building.

    "Jack's Hack", just so great. What else is waiting to be discovered at the NEAM?

    That is cheap relative to downtown Los Angeles, where I am paying north of $5.00/gallon.

    I'm unfamiliar with the Kawanishi. What's the story with this craft?

    White churches and red schools. Quintessential New England. Where was Benjamin Moore back in the day?
