So I headed up to Milan, to see my cousin, Bonnie, her hubby, Dave, their daughter Harley as well as her brother, Mike, his wife, Tammy and daughter Sam. On the way, I was told about Nansen Ski Jump – of course I had to visit!
I got to Milan, and the “girls” were off getting milk and “getting wifi” as there is no cell where the cabin, or as Mike Calls it The Chalet!
We hauled some wood, did some work and when it started snowing after the tour – Bonnie and everyone encouraged me to “go take some pictures!”
And pictures I did take. Bonnie and Dave have a great spread down in NH and very much worth spending time with family!
I hit up Caribou and Presque Isle today, just cuz an met up with my friend, Kasey for lunch. On the drive home I decided to pull over and take a few pictures.
My next stop! Lupins on the side of the road.
After the lupins, I made a quick pit stop at an abandoned building for a few snaps.
Old Trucks and even older Fire Trucks was the next stop on the side of the road. I have myself less than 10 mins to shoot what I wanted. Forces me to be innovated and an economy of shots!
My last stop was a few pictures of an old red barn in Van Buren.
A few old cars over in PI – my friend, Jamie P, took some of the same cars – his were FAR better!
I messed up on a setting somewhere, I think my f/stop. But I did get a few good one of the 15 I took!
Sometimes you just gotta pull over and snag a pic. I love trains, but they are never “stopped” by my house, so I did a 5 min – “snap as fast as you can” the other day.
The full moon is always a challenge to shoot, I think I got one or two right this time.
Sunsets, Railroad Tracks, and the Former Notre Dame Church.
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!
One of my first digital shots. I was walking our dog, Storm by the tracks and off these guys flew over head. I took this from “the hip”
This is Storm, she was sad this day because the retaining wall had literally fallen – thanks to the flooding!
The house pictures are my friend, Kasey’s home. I did a series of black and white and color and the B/W are FAR better looking than the color- and then Mr. Hummingbird.
A left over from the previous fall – in clear water.
NOT Fiddleheads! I just liked the light and shadow – my reward for this pic – a wet butt an a great picture!
Granite Quarry off Oceanview in Stonington, ME!
Scott’s Landing – found as is! I just lined up the shot!
