I had some blankets to toss into the laundry last weekend and decided, on the way there, that the sun was just right to stop and check out this old barn in Grand Isle with the Acadian Flag painted on it.
Barn – Grand isle, maine
No the paint didn’t bleed! This is just how lovely the reflection was.
Rusty and old truck
After the laundry mat, I took a lil jaunt up a back road and snagged a few pics of this brilliant old truck and a few other items there.
Don’t ask me the name of this bird, he was knocked out in the middle of the road. I pulled over, kept him close for a while and he woke up – and sat on my car for a while, then took off!
A bleary winter day – doesn’t mean there isn’t beauty around!
A few years ago, I lost all my photos. My backup drive went corrupt. I was able to save most, but I did end up with having lost 2011 and some of 2012. Thankfully, I did have some backed up here, on wordpress as well as a few on disc, remember that?

Both of these above were taken on Parent’s Mountain in front of my house.
This shot – took me a while to set up, mostly because the sun never quite hit at the right place. I had to do a bit of – scouting to get JUST the shot!
More perspective shots from Parent’s Mountain!
Years ago I started a story called Stormy Weather’s with a friend of mine, Windy. Windy fell sick and the story went to the wayside. I always wonder if someday we’ll revisit it. Maybe I will, it was a sweeping epic tale set in the 70s and went back to the 50s. The story was inspired, in a way, by pictures of the church in Lille, Maine.
I have a fascination with the sun, who doesn’t? I’m writing a novel called The Girls Next Door and the setting is a larger version of the little mountain I stared at since my childhood. The novel showcases a small town, the Tri-Valley area (fictional) but the mountain is real. Maybe someday I’ll own the mountain (like my character Leigh Drake does). Enjoy!
Since it’s University day tomorrow I’m going to post my UMPI pics today and tomorrow.
I’m always looking for a GREAT deal on, well, anything. I bought a wide angle lens last fall (it was a 180 dollar lens, I got it for 50)and that night, just by happenstance, I was waiting around for class and this wicked sunset happened just behind UMPI. Enjoy
