Hoyt....Maple Street

When I saw this man sitting on his porch on an autumn evening, my first inclination was to ring up the L.L. Bean catalog and ask, "Is one of your models, perchance, on the lam?" Hoyt good-naturedly agreed to be photographed....
"Be sure you get my bedroom shoes in the photo," he said. (So, that was settled; one supposes an L.L. Bean model would not hightail it out of Maine in anything less than duck boots.) Then, Hoyt's son rounded the house and directed my attention to another autumn ensemble. Did you make these, I asked the adorable nipper.
Yes, the young gentleman nodded....and graciously, like his father, granted me permission to capture an image.
