Under Construction: July 2014

Time again for a new entry in my "Under Construction" segment. Here are six projects under way around the peninsula.

Avesta's 409 Cumberland Avenue housing is making quick progress:

Viewed from the Maine Med parking garage, we can see luxury townhomes of Munjoy Heights starting to make an impact on the hillside:

From the Portland Observatory a few weeks ago, here is an aerial of 118 on Munjoy Hill, another impressive luxury housing development:

And lastly, the new building on Maine Wharf is moving right along. I like the curved rooftop:

Tri for a Cure

Pictured today is part of the current message on the TIme and Temperature building, which is highlighting the Maine Cancer Foundation's Tri for a Cure event, an all-women's triathlon that raises money for the organization. 

Bill Nemitz's article in the Press Herald today takes a closer look at the messages that get put up on the Time & Temp sign, as well as the Time & Temp Blog which I am happy to contribute to.

Nighttime Skyline from Fort Gorges

A nighttime view looking back to the mainland from Fort Gorges. The streaks of white and red light in the water are boats traveling back from watching the Independence Day fireworks:

Shipyard Summer Festival 2014

The first annual Shipyard Brewing Summer Festival was held this past weekend on the Maine State Pier. Shipyard, whose brewery is located nearby on Newbury Street, is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. As you can see from the photo below, it looks like the music piece of the event on Saturday was a success. 5k and half marathon races were also held as part of the event on Sunday, with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland and Cancer Community Center.

Moon Over Munjoy

A view of last night's full moon rising over Munjoy Hill. I took some similar shots from this spot back in 2012 and felt motivated to try capturing the scene again.

Under the Moonlight

I ventured out to South Portland to capture the sunset last night and turned around to find the moon making an appearance in the distance. The sunset can be seen in the top half of the trees, and the lower half was in shade at the time and appears darker:

Night at Fort Gorges

I hope I haven't lost anyone with all the Fort Gorges photos lately. Here is yet another, taken shortly before the boat ride home. I was happy to be able to capture some of the stars in the sky since the scene was much darker in person. I can only imagine how brilliant this would have looked if a talented astrophotographer was able to shoot this scene.
