30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 19

I’m cheating today with regard to my daily photographic upload.  It was raining this morning and I had other obligations up until I needed to start work.  And now that I’m done work, I’m too tired to attempt a nighttime excursion given the dark,… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 19”

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 18

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 12

When I visited the library in Bar Harbor yesterday, I noticed a book on one of the display tables called “Living on the Edge.”  It’s not what you might think given that title!  The book is a guide to life along the seacoast environment… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 12”

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 11

Torrential rain fell upon Mount Desert Island today.  I hunkered down inside my trailer for much of the day and thought about how I would manage to get a photo opportunity.  I cleaned, read and eventually took the shuttle into Bar Harbor to the… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 11”
