Mark Mathias: “Why We Live In Westport”

Mark Mathias is many things: An information technology specialist. Mini Maker Faire founder and c0-chair. Board of Ed member.

And excellent photographer.

Mark was so taken by Sunday’s perfect weather that he roamed around town, taking tons of very cool photos.

These are spectacular shots. Unfortunately, the “06880” format does not do them justice.

Fortunately, if you have an enlarge feature — hovering or double-clicking on your computer; swiping out on your phone; whatever — you can see Mark’s photos in all their glory.

Mark calls this series “Why We Live in Westport.” He might subtitle it: “A Realtor’s Gold Mine.”

It doesn't get more Westport than this.

    Beautiful Westport which I have been enjoying for the past 70 years. Never quite looked at it like that through the eye of a camera. Thank you for sharing the wonderful photos.

  3. How can you improve upon quintessential Westport! Longshore looks exactly as it did so many years ago when we used to ride our bikes there and spend the day. Great photos. Perfection.
