Yr5•272-365•1733 Doug June 30, 2014

June 30, 2014

Today an old friend stopped by. My wife and I both went to High School with Doug. I could not let him leave before I took a photo. Even though Doug lives out west this is his second time in the dailypic, we went to see him perform at the dueling piano bar he plays at in Arizona a few years ago, where I took the photo below. Great to see you Doug, can’t wait to meet the family next time.

Sun-setting on Maine
June 29, 2014

As the sun sets on another family vacation… yea, that’s bad. Vacation is over, this is one of the last shots I took up in Maine. We had a great time. I tried not to take too many photos, believe it or not.  I was strategic on what I shot and when I had the camera.  Arm needs a break now and then.  Back to the grind, more vacations coming up, weddings, family sessions and a bunch of events to photograph over the next few weeks. On top of that, less than 100 days left for this year’s dailypic. As of now I am not sure if five years make a complete project. In the meantime, send me suggestions for new shots. Or something you would like to see in this year’s set.

As for this shot, see the piece of wood in the center of the water, the off center “t”. It rained so much the first night we were there that the water of the lake rose, streets flooded and the beach was under water.  To give you a sense of how much water I am talking about… check the last shot below with Anna, at the bottom of the frame on the left, that’s the tip of the same wood “t”.

Wight Brook Upper Step
June 27, 2014

Turns out the waterfalls I was looking for yesterday were 1 mile from where we turned around and decided to photograph cows instead. Worked out better, we took the whole family today and it was a beautiful day. First stop were the Wight Brook Step Falls, The dailypic is the upper step and the next one down is the lower.  The view from the upper part was incredible.  The second stop was the Screw Auger Falls, which was hard to photograph, but incredible to witness. The power of water is insane. Reminds me I need to fix a drippy sink when I get home, as long as the water has not destroyed it while I was gone.

Artist’s Bridge
June 26, 2014

Anna and I went on an adventure to find a waterfall… we never found it, But we found cows and this cool bridge. Sunday River Bridge or Artist’s Bridge. Day 2, the rain stopped. All is well, wish you were fine, or something like that.
