For several weeks in July people from all over New England come to experience acres and acres of Sunflowers. Here is part of the history of how these Sunflowers got there, right from the Buttonwood Farm website. “In 2003 at the suggestion [...]

I am always running around Harford shooting news for all sorts of reasons. Today I passed by a sight that I have never seen before. It is Hartford’s Windy Metal Garden. Located right next to I-84 on Pope Park Hiway #4. A little hard to find, but once you have been there, you will know [...]
If comets, asteroids, planets, and winter storms can be named, I could name my own moon images. Keeping it local I present to you for the first time (drum roll please)…..The February Castle Moon, Meriden, Connecticut! The sun was about to go down, and the “Golden Hour” of photography was approaching. I set up my [...]
The historic Comstock Bridge in East Hampton, Connecticut renovation is almost complete. Closed in January of 2010 for a total makeover, this 95 foot covered bridge originally built in 1873 is now open to the public and walkable to cross the river. I was there this afternoon, as a steady flow of Comstock Bridge “watchers” [...]

Taking a short trip down I-91 to Meriden’s Hubbard Park this year to see the “Festival of Silver Lights” was my best Christmas gift I could give myself this year. Dissapointed in seeing how Hartford’s Holiday light display in Bushnell Park was after they had moved it from Constitution Plaza, this display gave me my Santa smile back! Best [...]
It’s one step up from a christmas tree lighting ceremony. It draws more people than the Nutcracker Ballet, and it has just as many characters preforming. What is it? It’s the Mystic, Connecticut Lighted Boat Parade. Traveling down the Mystic River, a flotilla of assorted lighted craft made their way under the Mystic draw bridge to [...]
How fitting it was to see red skies over Hartford. This was the scene early this morning over the State Capitol building in Hartford, Connecticut today, after a huge political storm last night during the elections. Is the storm over yet in the state? I think not! Stay tuned…and keep looking up!
A perfect day for leaf peeping in Connecticut yeilded more than a few frames of fall foliage in my camera. A never disappointing area to observe great autumn colors, and have maybe an apple fritter or two, is in Middlefield, Connecticut around the Lyman Orchards area. Rolling hills, acres of ripe apples, and squeals of children and [...]
CtcameraEye’s western correspondent Richard Bohner based out of Cottonwood, Arizona just released evidence that alien’s and a UFO participated in the annual Sedona St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Here is the photo. The little alien being carried must have had his fill of earthings “Ale” before the parade. Notice they are being closely followed by an [...]
