Giants of Sandwich & the Tree in the Pond

Several years ago, Magyar's Glass Studio began to make these really cool giant statues wrapped with lights.  Their popularity has continued to grow and he has made upwards of 60 giants which are placed all over town at various businesses.  A few years ago when I could still drive at night, I went around a little bit to take pictures but over time I've had to stop cause I can't see that well anymore.  My awesome husband has actually eagerly volunteered to drive me around after dark so that I can lug my tripod and stuff.  He finds a safe place to park so that I can set up my shots.  I really appreciate it!

Lights in the trees next to Town Hall

First Church of Christ

This is at a store that sells weather stuff

Dan'l Webster Inn

Beautiful old homes

When we were kids, this was a penny candy store with wooden floors.  Then it was a florist and then a piano/organ shop.  

Episcopal church

The Belfry B&B

More pretty homes

 Of course we had to stop so I could shoot the tree in the pond

Crow Farm.

Titcomb's Books

One of my faves

Another one I love.  The swan and dragon are on a very dark road and are quite striking.

Sandwich Legion.  I LOVE how this came out.

    1. Thanks Rosemary! It's truly awesome to see them, and especially the magnificent old homes downtown.
