Photo Challenge #464

I’m usually pretty good at identifying potential Photo Challenges, when photographers send them to “06880” for consideration.

But I fell into the trap Fred Cantor laid, when he emailed last week’s image.

“Ford Road!” I said, of the shallow, rock-studded river and surrounding foliage. (Click here to see.)


Fred’s shot showed Deadman Brook, as it flows into the Saugatuck River near the pedestrian bridge.

He took it from the parking lot behind the 32 Imperial Avenue medical office building.

Half of the readers made the same mistake I did. The other half — John McCarthy, Andrew Colabella, Pat Saviano, Jonathan McClure and Johanna Keyser Rossi — got it right.

Today’s Photo Challenge is on a well-traveled road. But how many of us really notice it?

If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

  11. Thank you, Michael Calise, for supplying the year and source of the building. I vividly recall posing in the structure with Rotarians and others for the Westport News photographer. I was accorded the honor as Director of the Westport Transit District at the time.
