Photographing downtown Mystic CT

Mystic offers so much in the way of photo ops. There is the quaintness of the town itself , river, boats, bridges,galleries, and Mystic Pizza.
I scheduled this for Saturday since it's the last day before we turn the clocks ahead so that gives us an extra hour to shoot around town. Many of the tourists will be gone, so we'll have the town to ourselves, so there's no cost.

NOTE: It may be pretty chilly at this time of year with wind off the water, so bundle up.

NOTE: In case of inclement stormy weather, we can meet on Sunday.

More Info on Mystic: http://mystic.org

NOTE: There is municipal parking near the Mystic Art Center, 7 Water Street, Groton (for your GPS).

We'll meet in front of the Mystic Art Center at 11 AM and we can decide from there what we'd like to shoot.


This should be a fun event.

    Pretty good. generally great weather/skys. Crowds were (thankfully) modest.

    I took myself, and Mark, off the list as I don't think we can make it down there by 11 am. We are planning to go to Mystic Seaport in early afternoon, so may see some of you around town somewhere. It's supposed to be a beautiful day, so enjoy!!

    We are keeping the Sunday the 11th at 11 AM as our meetup to eliminate any confusion. The only change would be if the Mystic Chamber of Commerce says we'd be interfering with any clean up.

    I'll email everyone if there's any change.

      I drove from Stonington to Niantic this past Sunday along the coast looking for damage. Mystic, at least the town center was open for business and quite active. I can't imagine we'll have any problems -- except, perhaps, finding exciting storm damage.

    Saturday the 10th I could make, but Sunday is already booked. Too bad since this is essentially my back yard and I really love wandering and shooting in Mystic.

    Just to clarify that this is on the 11th, since daylight savings was last week.

      I will check with the Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday to check on the conditions in Mystic. I'm hoping things will be cleaned up and maybe presents additional photo ops. See you there.

      Thanks for checking with the Mystic C of C, Ira. I wondered if the town would be welcoming to camera buffs in light of the storm damage. We are hoping to drive down that day, but will watch for updates.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
