NEW MILFORD, CONNECTICUT – Another grim, overcast day.  While driving on back roads from New Milford to Kent, Connecticut. I spotted an odd structure: a run-down wooden ziggurat.  I stopped to photograph it (despite the poor light).  As I was working a woman stopped her car and told me its story.  It was built by a man named J. Pol in the mid-1960s.  His teenage daughter became pregnant; the State of Connecticut alleged that he was the father and took custody of the daughter away from him; he denied it and built the ziggurat as a memorial to is life with her.
