Vermont

Milkweed propagation 




Fall is my favorite season, and it always feels like it comes and goes so quickly.  This year I'll be lucky enough to experience Fall twice.  With the leaves still green in New York, I flew into Vermont just as peak hit last week.   I was overwhelmed by how far along into fall Vermont already was. There was so much going on visually, I wanted to document everything.  Below are a few images from my trip. 
Milkweed.  An essential plant for the survival of the Monarch butterfly.

Some of the lawn ornamentation in Vermont was just as colorful as the season.

Me and Mr Jones

Mr Jones is 92 years old.  From 1953 to 1965 he worked with my grandfather, Robert Garthwaite, as the Director of Research on a documentary series on NBC "Project Twenty."  The series covered events shaping the lives of the people of the 20th century.... Ellis Island, The Jazz Age, The Korean war etc.  The style of Project Twenty was particularly groundbreaking as it combined video, still photographs, and composed music & narration. The show was nominated for an Emmy in 1963 for "Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Documentary."  Meeting Mr. Jones was an honor.
