The 2014 odds n’ ends picture post

12/30/2014

 

Here’s some great fall and early winter pictures of Maine. The photos have been locked inside my camera this year waiting for a chance to hit the blog. This end of the year “odds n’ ends” picture post is the perfect time to get them some eyes. Enjoy and Happy New Year:

Ice cream stand Bradley, Maine

I shot this one on a bike ride up the Penobscot River. Bradley is just a small string of commercial buildings located across the river from Old Town.

 

Fort Point Lighthouse, Stockton Springs, Maine

Jen and I visited the Fort Point Lighthouse during Maine Lighthouse Day. For one Saturday each fall, Maine lighthouses are opened to the public. You can see some of the lucky visitors have climbed to the top.

Gazebo. Boston, Mass.

Jen and I took a walk along the Boston water front during our Thanksgiving weekend visit. This structure was near a hotel. I’m not sure what they do with it.

Snowy yard. Bangor, Maine

Every year we join UMaine professors Nate and Naomi on a historic home tour in Bangor. This year the tour was held during a snow storm. I snapped this picture on Broadway Avenue across the street from one of the homes on the tour.

House boat. Belfast, Maine

Belfast is located at the mouth of the Passagassawakeag River on the Atlantic Ocean. Yup, the Passagassawakeag. The harbor has lots of funky boats, historic boats and lobster boats. I liked this one.

Outhouse, Fayette, Maine

I collect photos of outhouses, frame them and hang them in the bathroom. This outhouse was found behind an unnamed church in Franklin County.

Another shot from the Bangor historic home tour. This canoe replaced a horse in a barn attached to the house.

Onions. Belfast, Maine

Chase’s Daily restaurant in Belfast hosts a farmer’s market every Saturday morning in a gallery behind their kitchen.

Truck exhibit. Coles Transportation Museum. Bangor, Maine

Truck exhibit. Cole Land Transportation Museum. Bangor, Maine

Cole Land Transportation Museum is loaded with antique cars, trucks, snowplows, trains, bikes and much, much more. It’s like your car-crazy uncle built a giant warehouse and filled it with vehicles that only run on diesel or leaded gasoline and manual transmissions. By the way, that’s your car-crazy uncle behind the wheel.

Happy Acres Dance Hall. Alton, Maine

Happy Acres Dance Hall. Alton, Maine

Well, this guy had a little too much fun at Happy Acres during the final performance of the great Maine country band Desparado.

View from Staten Island Ferry. New York, New York

View from Staten Island Ferry. New York, New York

I spent an October weekend biking in New York City with my buddy Keith. We took our bikes out to Staten Island and rode to Denino’s Pizza. I snapped this picture off the back of the ferry.

We watched the sunset from Cadillac Mountain with friends Christopher and Katie this fall. I took this picture of Jen with the panoramic setting on my camera.

The birthday celebration kicked off with breakfast at the Bangor HoJos. Do birthdays get any better?
