We were supposed to take a trip up to Stamford to visit my brother and his family. But my wife and the kids stayed up too late, slept in and backed out of their commitment to going with me. I could have made the two-hour trip without them but I know my brother. He would have insisted that I only make the trip if all of us were coming. When my wife and kids said they weren't coming I had to call my bother and back out. He was understanding but ... I felt disappointed. It's been a while since I had seen him.

My wife convinced me to pick another date but given how busy things can get the earliest weekend is three weeks from today. To make it work, I cancelled every single photography event I had planned. That made my disappointment worse because I had a really bad winter and really wanted to make sure my entire summer isn't wasted. Like it was last year.

I went out for a walk near the Kingston Mill house with my camera and tripod. A few hours by myself doing something creative help me clear my head. I ended up with this shot of the water flowing around a rock near the bridge over the old Route 27.
