Larry Untermeyer turns 90 years young today.
The noted photographer — who has exhibited in countless shows, and whose shots enliven many local publications (including, gratefully “06880”) — was born on this lucky day: 7/11.

The new nonagenarian shows no signs of slowing down. He recently returned from 6 weeks in Greece.
We’d ask him the secret of his longevity. But we can’t get him to stop and answer.
Happy birthday, Larry!

One of the last places realtors take prospective home buyers is Town Hall.
It should be one of the first.
At least, while Larry Untermeyer’s “Zoom in on Westport” photo exhibit is up.
Last summer and fall, Larry was a frequent flyer in Chuck Tanner’s Cessna 182. The result: stunning aerial photos of town, now hanging on the wall just around the corner from the auditorium.
Larry captured Westport in all our verdant and leafy glory. The beach, Longshore, downtown, Staples — it’s all there, from a perspective you’ve never seen before.
Larry’s photos show how amazing our town is. How small downtown is. How much open space remains. Who knew?
The photos hung, until recently, at the Westport Historical Society. At Town Hall, they’re even more accessible.
Unless, that is, all those realtors and home buyers won’t let you near.
