Some people will do anything to keep the snow off their head, like this woman and her umbrella.

Photo Friday: Night Shot

December 8, 2017

The beautiful part of working at night is the opportunities for night photography.  It’s the type of photography that isn’t overdone, because most people are settled in their homes when I’m on my way into work.

This shot is of the park that goes under the Casco Bay Bridge.  It reminds me of the older sepia landscapes, and only a few blue lights in the background betrays that feeling.

First Look Photo: Rarely Seen Animal

November 22, 2017

In Maine, it is said that people can live here their entire lives and never see a rabbit.  The reason for this is simple. Eastern cottontail rabbits, like foxes, are primarily nocturnal. On occasion one might be seen during the day, but that is an extremely rare occurrence.  I found this rabbit on my way into work the other night.

Photo Friday: Window into History

November 17, 2017

Before the city of Portland paved their roads, the streets were made of brick, and I found a pot hole that revealed this fact clearly.

I keep on seeing these scarves on a line, on my way to the bus.  I find them both interesting, and colorful.

Photo Friday: Ghosting

November 10, 2017

Ghosting is a great special effect using much slower shutter speeds to blur the action of someone walking.  This one was taken at 1/20 second.
