Chester — A Jewel of a Village in Orange County

I used the "Pop Art" setting on a new camera to accentuate the bright colors in Chester's Main Street.

It’s genteelly picturesque, steeped in history, has a nice outdoor market during the warm months along with a vintage railway station that now serves as home of the local Historical Society and as one of the principal starting points for the renowned Heritage Trail. As villages go, Chester is one of the tops in Orange County — in my opinion, perhaps THE top.

Here is a small collection of pictures I’ve taken in Chester on recent visits.
