First Look Photo: Another Angle

April 12, 2017

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.

Photo Friday: Braving the Waves

January 29, 2016

Today’s photo Friday is brought to you by Fort Williams; home of the Portland Headlight.  I took today’s pictures on a very cloudy day at Fort Williams, and the Waves put in a very good show for the camera.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s 5,000 words worth.

Photo Friday: Favorites of 2015

January 1, 2016

For today, I decided to post my favorite photographs of 2015.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.IMG_0884I just love this squirrel

Photo Friday: Birthday at a landmark.

July 10, 2015

Last week was my birthday, and I was enjoying it at Fort Williams; the home of the Portland Headlight.  This is one of my favorite locations to shoot because it’s a true historical landmark, which was commissioned by George Washington, and the fact that it’s only a couple of miles from my home.

This site is so famous, and beautiful, that words pale in comparison, so I will just post the pictures.  I hope you enjoy them.

Day 40: The Littlest Lighthouse

February 2, 2012

The Littlest Lighthouse

 

Don’t judge my size

I have my place,

I may be small but

I take up less space.

 

Don’t think your design

Is better or more grand,

When it comes to safer shores

I can still lend a hand.

 

So let’s work together

To bring ships safely home

Pointing our lights out to sea,

Just don’t judge my size

That’s my only plea.

Day 27: Safely Home

January 20, 2012

Safely Home

 

Sailing through the sea of life

When the weather gets rough,

It’s easy to get off course

And lose sight of land.

 

At times like these

It’s nice to know

We have a beacon

To guide us safely home.
