WHERE WE LIVE- SEPTEMBER 2008
Photography Sarah Szwajkos
The St. George River snakes through the hilly town of Union, and the sweeping meadows along its banks rise up toward the hamlet’s many orchards and farmsteads. This winding grass path leads to a white-clapboard farmhouse that was built in 1930 and modeled after the original structure built by one of the earliest families in Union. In this moment captured just before dusk, the birds—bittern, doves, and the occasional eagle—are settling down for the evening. Returning from a late-afternoon splash in the river, family and friends are greeted by the familiar and welcome sight of home.
