portland head light

• 9 comments •


You can't visit Maine without going to see a lighthouse so we went to the Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth. Our water quickly ran out in the mid-summer heat but luckily there was a stand nearby selling blueberry sodas. We sat and watched the tides and the sailboats for awhile and chatted with a man who was selling his oil paintings of Maine. He was really friendly, told me about his tattoos, and said "I probably broke your camera" when I took a photo of his face. I picked up one of his prints to hang in my home so that I'll be reminded of this trip whenever I pass by it.

  4. I like his face! It is fittingly weathered - it actually makes for a really beautiful photograph. Time would be all over that.
