Early morning in Bar Harbor

Early morning in Bar Harbor

Taken at sunrise while driving through town on the last day of our vacation, and on our way home to Maryland. The sun was sparkling on the water and lighting up the painted shops along Main Street. West Street is ahead; Bar Island in the distance. This is the time of day that I like the most in this town - when it's quiet and very early, and the streets are freshly scrubbed from the prior day's onslaught of tourists.

View from Jordan Pond House, Maine

View from Jordan Pond House

Lunch was delicious, and diners have been enjoying the meals here since the late 1800's. To think I'd never been there before, in all the years I've been going to Maine. For more info, check out the link below.

Zinnia love

Zinnia love

No matter the weather here in Maryland, be it drought or deluge, the zinnias in the side yard by the patio never fail to delight me.

Schoodic fog

Schoodic 24

It's been nearly two years since I've posted in this space and I have no idea why I'm doing so now. It's hot, it's difficult being outside, and I've been going through photos of my recent trip to Maine and just felt like sharing. This isn't my favorite photo from the trip by any means, but am posted it because that's a huge rock-shelf there at the edge of the island, and the waves were almost to the top of it. The curl adds a nice touch, too.

Weekly dose of George: Reflecting

Weekly dose of George
Here is George, who seems to be reflecting on the passing of the old year and the coming of the new. But really, he's scanning the horizon for squirrels who would dare trespass on his territory.
Florabella's retro vintage action coupled with Kim Klassen's October layers texture. Found a cool texture tutorial here, at Shadowhouse Creations. A little different from my normal way of applying, and very interesting.

Pink skies in the evening

Pink skies at night
After taking shots of the full moon last night, I turned around and was rewarded with a sky full of beautiful pink tinted clouds. It made me smile.
Thinking of changing the name of this blog to a Picture a Week. I just can't keep up with things sometimes . . .
