St Philip the Apostle. Ashford CT

St Philip the Apostle Church in Ashford CT , “was at the center of the small community of farmers here, most of them of Slovak descent. It was that community who helped to build St. Philip, literally with their own hands. Every day, as they went about their work in the fields, the farmers would set aside stones they found, and every weekend they shaped those into the walls of the church that still stands here.” From the website

On Pompey Hollow Road in Ashford CT

I pulled in their driveway to take the photo.

Under the Bridge

Homestead Grays Bridge, built in 1936, was formerly called the Homestead High Level Bridge. I Pulled into a parking space to shoot the underbelly Wednesday night. The blue light against the night sky. The bridge spans the Monongahela River but this part is over the Waterfront shopping area.

“It is notable as the first bridge to incorporate the Wichert Truss, which uses a quadrilateral shape over each support, into its design. This made the truss statically determinate, so that forces in the structural members could be calculated.” Wikipedia

A 2017 blog post I did of bridges going over the Monongahela shows a different view of this same bridge.

Freedom Tower Two Views

My sister sends me photos from her early morning walks in New York City.

Her guest blogging helps me with interesting posts when I’m not really going anywhere.

It’s cool she’s a tourist where she lives. Thanks, Mary.
