Carroll Street, January 2015

Here is the first of many photos from today's snow event, taken on Carroll Street in the West End. I'm sure I'm not the only photographer who has been waiting for some fresh snow to take photos of.

Acrobatic Dogs

A collage of photos featuring the appropriately named piece of art, "Acrobatic-Dogs," by Bernard Langlais. This is located at the Portland Public Library, and is just one of several Langlais pieces that are now in Portland. You can check out the others at the Portland Public Art Committee's website, as well as the Langlais Art Trail website.

Union Bagel Co.

Pictured today is the cozy headquarters of Union Bagel Co. at 147 Cumberland Avenue. You can also find their bagels at several coffee shops around town. Their location on Cumberland Avenue has a history of successful restaurants and bakeries: It was previously home to Katie Made Bakery (now located on Congress Street) and Silly's (now located on Washington Avenue.).
