Took a ride down to Hadley today on a Photographic Damage Control Mission (more on that soon) and, as is my wont, cruised the back roads with camera in hand.

I found myself in the agrarian hill town of Conway, somewhat down-river from my usual haunts, but nonetheless a place which is pictorially representative of life here in Southern New England.

I crossed the wood-planked bridge at Bardwell’s Ferry on the Deerfield River, a very cool pseudo-suspension bridge with hinged steel tension members in place of cables:


…and entered a world of wood lots and sugar houses, farms and fields


And this, an artist’s studio in an old barn on the banks of Reed’s Brook:


I took this shot from a bridge which I helped build a couple of years ago.

All in all, a nice little town in the highlands outside of The People’s Republic of Northampton.
