Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #22

You guys never cease to amaze me. The photo challenges I think are hard, you nail in nano-seconds. The ones I think are easy, you puzzle over like it’s a Hubble Telescope view of the planet NX-248077J.

Andrea Cross was the only “06880” reader to recognize last week’s image as part of the “Arnold Bernhard Plaza” sign at the Westport Library. And I thought I served up a softball for the holiday weekend. (Click here to see the photo, and many incorrect guesses.)

So I won’t even guess whether you can guess where Lynn U. Miller shot this photo. All I can say is: You’ve all seen it. A lot.

    I think this a view of Greens Farms ‘New Creek’ preserve – showing a house on maple lane that backs up to it.

    I agree with Seth; pic taken from the entrance to Maple Lane, on the little bridge.

    It is the marsh grass looking north from Parker Harding plaza. The small house visible at the top of the frame is on belden lane I think

  5. Well done, John and Jacques. Lynn U. Miller’s shot does indeed show the view from behind the old “Pack Roads” shopping complex, opposite Gorham Island. It’s taken from Parker Harding Plaza, looking north.

    I’ve always wondered about this little red house whenever I’ve canoed past. It seems like a pastoral oasis in the midst of, um, some other stuff. I can just imagine sitting on the screened in porch drinking ice tea and watching the tide come in. What more do you need? Nice image, Lynn.

      Thank you Morely. There are many nice views from the sidewalk that goes to Gorham Island – especially at high tide. As for the charming red house, What a gem! I too, have imagined sitting on the screen porch and watching all the marshland wildlife. I’m not at all sure that the house is currently occupied. I just hope it won’t become a “teardown” .

    I wondered if it was gorham island. ..i still remember that great house on the island…artists used to paint pictures of it…saw examples in an art book…felt sad that they tore it down to build on the island.
