Memorial Day 2017

The American flag flying in Monument Square today in honor of Memorial Day. The Our Lady of Victories statue was dedicated in 1891 and according to the Portland Public Art Committee it honors "the 5,000 lives the city lost to the Civil War, fully one-sixth of its population [at the time]."

Flashback: New York, May 2016

Three Throwback Thursday photos from a visit to the fine city of New York City last May. Sometimes processing photos in black and white brings out different things that I didn't notice originally.

Cliffs of Moher, May 2017

Looking back to a recent vacation in Ireland, here are some photos from the epic Cliffs of Moher. The cliffs reach as high as 702 feet above the Atlantic Ocean and if you look closely you can see people and cows in some of these shots.

Flashback: Commercial Street Trolley

A Thursday Throwback to May 2014 and a "Looking into the Past" entry from Commercial Street. The historical photo is via the Portland Maine History 1786 to Present Facebook group. Wouldn't it be something to see streetcars return here? It's happening in a lot of other cities.
