BRENT PENNINGTONTown of Owego on the afternoon of 26 September 2014.

Allow me to present the town of Owego, NY, from earlier this autumn.  Owego is about 20 minutes west of Binghamton, where I went to university, and is one of my old haunts from those days.  Back then it had a really wonderful cafe, and great used bookstore, a art supply shop, and one of the loveliest historic districts I’ve seen in the northeast.

Unfortunately, shortly after I moved to PA the Susquehanna River – you can see it and the big bridge just behind the town – flooded, and Owego took a lot of damage.  I hear that the bookstore is open again, and there are a few new restaurants now.  We were passing through the area and got to spend a little time there, although not as much as I would have liked.

But I did make a point to visit the cemetery, which is where I took this photo – it has an amazing view out across the town and river and the light is especially nice late in the day like this.
