Out of the Jurisdiction: Granite Links Golf Club


High in the Blue Hills south of Boston, Granite Links Golf Club was created by depositing the fill from Boston's "Big Dig" in old quarries.  The Boston skyline is visible on the distant horizon.

A Fondness for Blue


Homeowners recently installed a Little Free Library.  Many readers, lots of books to give away.
They put a pale blue chair beside it so neighbors could sample a book before taking it.
And, they placed two pale blue Adirondack chairs on their front lawn.  Nice.

Street Ghosts

Google Street View sometimes catches real people.  Artist Paolo Cirio finds some, then prints life-size images and mounts them where they were seen.  I found some in downtown Hartford.


Thanks, Annetta, for walking past a couple of times for me.  It made the photo more interesting.
(I also liked watching you walk.)



The installations were sponsored by Real Art Ways.

Fred


Fred likes chocolate ice cream.  His mother?  Not so much.

Chango Rosso

Chango Rosso opened two weeks ago at the street end of Union Station, replacing longtime Hartford favorite Hot Tomatoes.  The owners hired Wallingford muralist Arcy to 
paint this mural on an exterior wall under the train tracks.  


Noted Hartford residents Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), Katherine Hepburn and Samuel Colt are illustrated.  Arcy did graffiti-style paintings throughout the restaurant.  I will show some next week.

Father's Day


Happy Fathers Day.  My father John, a veterinarian.  The first boy has been named John for generations, alternating John, Jack, John, Jack, John.
