Today’s shot is of a bird called a bufflehead.  It’s a duck like bird that is not usually seen in this part of Maine.

Strangely enough, I love winter pictures in black and white.  This shot was taken during the second snow storm to hit the Portland area this season.

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.
