Thank you Usman. The deeper I get into panoramic and HDR imagery the more my life-long desire to produce a photograph that approaches the range of colors and clarity of the human eye is satisfied. Many years ago I worked in Hong Kong where scenes from the harbor left me speechless and unable to share those sights, and that is where and when my yearning began. #10426157

I spent three semesters in Hartford more than 40 years ago. I saw this place often, but never really SAW it. Now I do.

It's beautifully done. Exquisite work, Dick. #10426849

Thank you Michelle. My mentor, Sylvian Ofiara, now deceased, was the last person I knew that was allowed to photograph the interior of the home. It is a magnificent piece of architecture that was once occupied by Samuel Clemens, an equally magnificent author. And to think....his neighbor whose property bordered his was none other than Harriett Beecher Stowe. Birds of a feather..........

40 years aye? #10426972

Description

The Mark Twain House and Museum was the home of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain) from 1874 to 1891 in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. Before 1874, Twain had lived in Hannibal, Missouri. The architectural style of the 19-room house is Victorian Gothic.
In this home, Twain produced many of his most notable books, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), Life on the Mississippi (1883). Poor financial investments caused the Twain family to move to Europe in 1891. When they returned to Connecticut in 1900 he lived in a house built for him in Redding, Connecticut, named Stormfield, where he died on April 21, 1910.
This home is situated at 351 Farmington Avenue in Hartford.
