Landmarks



PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: 


Landmarks

Landmarks! 
anchors in space
windows through time 
bidden or not
like the morning 
and cinnamon
scent of the bakery 
on the corner
no longer
and the long sigh of the factory whistle 
when shifts changed, 
and the watchful clock at Union Station 
saying no one should ever be late
and the world was rolling on.

Wait. Where is this, Ted? It could be in Europe, though I'm sure it's not.

Hardly. It's Waterbury, CT. The Church was built by the French Canadian mill workers. The ditant tower of Union Station was inspired by the tower in Sienna, Italy. Behind me and not visible is a model of Jerusalem that was built on the hillside by the Italian community in the SOuth End of Waterbury.
