Pic Of The Day #511

Westport schools were closed today for Rosh Hashanah. So while adults got a workout at the Westport Tennis Club this morning, kids found other ways to occupy their time.

Photo Challenge #108

Hey, “06880” readers: You guys really know your waterfalls. You know your church windows, and your light fixtures outside your restaurants.

Plus, you know your side doors of indoor tennis clubs.

Last week’s photo challenge was an overhead smash for Jeff Giannone, Seth Braunstein, Linda Durakis, Peter Hirst, Ed Hulina, Beth Orlan Berkowitz, Tammy Barry, Andrew Colabella and Bob Twiss.

All of you ob”served” that Lynn U. Miller’s “shot” of an obscure door was actually the exit from the old Westport Tennis Club (now Sylvan Tennis), on South Sylvan Road. During its long heyday it was also called “Erwin’s,” in honor of Erwin Mach (former Longshore pro), who with his wife Barbara owned it. To see the less than glamorous — but apparently well known — image, click here.

Now here’s this week’s photo challenge. Many of us pass it every single day. But do we ever really notice it?
