A Black And White Sunday

“There’s something strange and powerful about black-and-white imagery.”

– Stefan Kanfer

These photos were taken today at the Trinity Pawling school in Pawling, New York. The ice rink at the school acts as the home rink for my daughters u16/19 travel hockey team. Today was overcast with a temperature in the mid to upper 20’s, which in my opinion, makes for excellent B & W photos.

This light reminds of an old gas lamp.

A One Of A Kind Ice Rink

“I call architecture frozen music.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Most of the ice rinks that you see these days are mainly large industrial building that lack any type of architectual savvy. Over the fifteen years that I have traveling to rinks in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts,  not many have the complexity that the Jackson Rink at the Westminster school in Simsbury, CT has. This is without a doubt the nicest (and coldest) rink that I have seen either of my children play in. A truly beautiful building. Check out the photos of the interior of the rink.
