I carry both black & white and color film. One day, with my eyes shut, I reached into my camera bag, felt around, extracted a random roll, loaded my camera and began taking pictures without knowledge of the film type.
|Vermont Welcome Center|
A week later, with a few minutes to spare before meeting friends in Brattleboro, Vermont, I stopped at the Guilford Welcome Center off Interstate 91.
Signs promoting the Center's WiFi capacity interested me as did the display of old horse drawn farm equipment on the grounds.
|WiFi and Wildlife|
The map is of wildlife road crossings in the state. I need a reality check here. Please help me. In my mind, the promise of Vermont is the unspoiled outdoors, wildlife, nature and a lack of technology, or at most, tractors clattering. Heading into Vermont for a visit, would your heart thrill to know that the welcome center had WiFi, or would you wonder: "What's wrong with this picture?"
A beautiful perennial garden graced the grounds. A flock of dragonflies hovered nearby as I photographed. Birds tweeted.
The garden centered on a sundial. At one edge was a solar panel powered informational kiosk.
|Time Did Not Always Tick Past|
