Today’s picture is all about light and shape.  It’s lit from the inside of a cover over a building.

Every year, red breasted mergansers swim their way through this part of Maine, while on the winter part of migration.

The northern blue jay is almost identical to its southern relatives, only in a much paler blue.

I have to admit, I love documentary style photography.  It’s the best way to see the beauty of reality.

Photo Friday: One Man’s Ordinary

The biggest issue with many photographers is they get complacent with their surroundings and don’t think they can find anything “interesting” to shoot.  I read an article during the 80’s that helped me through this problem. It said that what one man finds uninteresting, another finds amazing.

Don’t allow yourself to think you have nothing to shoot, because it’s all interesting to someone.

Thanks to the wonderful website 52Frames.com I have been looking at some of the architecture of Portland.  I really like the looks of the city building, in the tower, at night.  I especially like the way the arches are lit up.
