For a while now, I’ve been making images of places I often pass by thinking they’d make a good photograph but hadn’t previously done so. Yesterday was another. This little pond, whose name if it has one I have yet to discover, is right by Amherst Road in Pelham just after one turns off of Route 202. That is one of the three main roads I travel on the way home from North Quabbin. I am sure hundreds of cars pass here daily on the way to and from Amherst, especially college students returning from points east.
It’s easy to miss this as you have to be looking for it through the trees at the edge of the road. I think it was even nicer before our Wednesday rain event, but there is still enough color to appreciate and a reflection to boot.
I’ve adopted the title of a Tom Robbins novel from the 90’s for this category of photographs.
