Photo Challenge #212

Maybe it’s because relatively few Westporters wait for trains on the eastbound platform.

Maybe it’s because after eating at Donut Crazy, you’re on such a sugar high you can’t sit down.

Whatever the reason, only 2 readers knew that last week’s Photo Challenge — Seth Schachter’s shot showing the word “Welcome” — was actually a bench for riders taking Metro-North toward New Haven. (Click here for photo.)

Lynn Untermeyer Miller and Andrew Colabella were the 2 eagle-eyed — or perhaps travel-weary — eagle-eyed readers. Their responses were quite “welcome.”

So how about this week’s Photo Challenge? If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

    I feel like I’ve seen this before, but such a foggy memory.

    Maybe on a pathway at the cemetery on King’s Highway North/Old Hill?

  13. No one has yet gotten this right — or even come close. Here’s are two hints: It’s not a high aerial shot. It is a spot that pedestrians — shoppers — walk on all the time.

  14. A metal grate in the brick sidewalk downtown, with moss growing in between the metal stiles, now missing a tree that had been planted in the center? (I really have no idea and have been checking the blog for an answer).
