I hit up several places, talked to some people, and found a lot of what she was looking for!

Often she has to send me examples of what she is looking for because I have no clue Smile

I then took a nap (I know right!) and headed out to chase the millkyway.  It was super elusive this time around!  That’s okay I got the crab nebula in a few photos and then the moon rose and washed it all out!

I have to admit, the world looks vastly different in the dark of night.

Acadian Village, Van Buren, ME–6-20-2018

My mom’s friend, Anne Roy, is an indispensable part of the Acadian Village in Van Buren (<- link to official page).  She and I had chit chatted before, and I wanted to stop in and take a few photos. So finally, I needed a few moments to unwind, this was as good a time as any! There wasn’t a lot of sun, which of course, in houses that had no electricity, presented challenges.

The above house is the Morneault House, donated to the Village by my Grandmother, Norma Beaupre. I’d never been in it, but I do remember “where” the house stood when I was a young tot. I opted on some photos to yank up the ISO, so that in post processing I’d get a grainer feel, that age instead of glossy and shiny.

Outdoor stuff to work shops!  There is something everywhere to see (and photograph).

The church is cute, and has some nifty features.  Next time I need to bring a soft light to help w/the darker aspects of shooting there.

I cannot imagine what school was like in such a schoolhouse, but I can’t see kids now a day sin those small desks and chairs either!

There is truly a little bit of everything at the Acadian Village in Van Buren, ME (<- link to facebook page!). Their exhibits change yearly and Anne is putting together a new and exciting one!

If you have time and are around the area, PLEASE do stop in. If you are interested in Acadian History, or want to spend a short afternoon, and even have a picnic, please stop in. Donations are always welcome as well! 

Around and About – Maine

One of the best parts of working this home care job, is the places I go and things I see.  Typically, its go, go, go.  But I can get out of the car, snap 10 pictures in under five minutes.  I just have to drive fast to make up for the time, right?  (I’m joking!)

These are the same pictures, one is HDR’ed slightly more than the other – its an old rushed out truck sitting somewhere around Harbour Side, Me.  On these wicked twisty, turn roads.

I love how the ice makes jigsaw puzzle like patterns on the edge of the water!

This is what happens during laundry time – I get bored and take pictures of things….. name that object!

There is beauty in everything – and in everything there is beauty.

I drove this area last year, but this lovely motorcycle, I had never seen (more than likely covered by snow).  This year, during one of the many thaws, I spotted it on my way home and snagged a few pictures.  Interesting how the rust bleeds through the paint – they sure don’t make em like they used too!
