Photo Challenge #272

I’ve run some weird images as Photo Challenges.

On its face, there’s nothing strange about last week’s. It showed a pleasant domestic scene: rocking chair, clock, old-fashioned radio, pastoral farm painting.

What made it odd is that it can be found in a very public place: above the produce section at Fresh Market, on the Post Road. In fact, there are several similar scenes throughout the store.

Who knew? Not I — and I shop there. Photographer Evan Barr had to clue me in.

Morley Boyd knew, of course. He knows everything. Sylvia Corrigan and Robin Levey did too.

Most readers were as clueless as I. But I’m sure all of us will look up a lot more the next time we check out the radishes and raspberries.

You, meanwhile, can check out the photo — and the comments, which veered into other realms, since most readers had no idea where the photo was taken — by clicking here.

Meanwhile, if you know where to find this week’s Photo Challenge, click “Comments” below.

One hint: It’s not at Fresh Market. Or anywhere else indoors.

  12. Wow – I guess there are a lot of these cliffs in Westport. It is off I-95 — in this case, near Exit 18. To be precise, it’s the commuter parking lot on the Sherwood Island Connector, diagonally across from the transfer station.

    I think Brian Taylor nailed it as well at 12:05. Although it wasn’t as precise, I knew he identified that was it, across from the town dump
