So you think you know Westport?
Whether you’re a native, a newcomer or an expat, “06880” is introducing a new feature we think everyone will enjoy.
Each Sunday at noon, we’ll post a photo of some place in town. It may be vaguely familiar, or a close-up of a spot you see every day.
Lynn U. Miller — a longtime Westporter, Staples grad, very talented photographer and good friend — will provide the images. She’s got a great eye for finding offbeat angles, and obscure parts of familiar scenes.
Your job is to figure out where it is. Click “Comments” to be the 1st to nail it. If someone beat you to it, feel free to add some thoughts on what that particular place means to you.
It’s the end of a holiday weekend, so we’ll start with an easy one. Enjoy!
Lynn U. Miller describes herself as a “chronicler of family, friends and events.” She started on that path at Kings Highway Elementary and Bedford Junior High Schools. She still has some of those photos — along with a few old Instamatics.
Growing up surrounded by art, and viewing this town (and the world, and life) through a lens, she documented the ever-changing Westport landscape. She looks forward to showing future grandchildren pictures of cool places around town.
Lynn graduated from Staples in 1971, and Arcadia University in 1975 with a major in English. She lived in New York City, and met her husband Jason in their building. They moved to Annapolis after marrying in 1980, and moved back here to be close to family.
“I’m a big fan of Westport: the town and the people,” Lynn says.
Lynn is a frequent contributing photographer to WestportNow.com. Her favorite pastime is using the computer to create altered images and collages.
Lynn and Jason have 3 children: Meghan, who lives in Branford; Daniel, and Andrew, a junior at Roger Williams University. Lynn’s father, Larry Untermeyer, is a well-known Westport photographer.
