I took this photo on my way to the store. It was so peaceful I wanted to remember it.
Today’s picture is of paper tree bark. The importance of this bark is it used to be used as paper to write on; of course this was before they had paper mills.
The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.
As I start the last photo assignment for the professional course at New York Institute of Photography, I am happy to note that this is not the end of my education, but the beginning.
My career in the photo industry is about to begin, maybe not today, but soon, and I know the need for continued education will be a key to my growth as a photographer, and eventual success of all I dream my career can be.
With that, here is today’s photo from my last assignment, there are going to be two more, but I haven’t taken them yet.
This flower is the first one I’ve seen blooming this spring. This is another great reminder that Spring has finally arrived in Maine.
The Portland Headlight is the most photographed in the world. The challenge of the headlight is to take a different shot. This week I went to Fort Williams before the sun rise. I found this view with a tree that I found pleasant.
Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring. I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.
I’ve started having fun, on instagram, with photo puzzles. I take pictures of everyday objects in an abstract way, and the viewer has to guess what they are. Here is today’s.
At the close of every Winter, there are several signs that the Spring weather is here to stay. The cardinals singing is one of them, but the next sign is the return of the Spring birds, of which the Cedar Waxwing is one of them. I spotted this one on Sunday, on my walk home.
