Scarf Mob

Here is a  hat and glove set spotted in Deering Oaks yesterday, placed there by the local Scarf Mob. You may have seen these sorts of cold-weather gear at other spots around town as well, which are placed in the hopes that people in need will find and put them to use to stay warm.

Eastern Cemetery, February 2015

The Alonzo P. Stinson / Civil War Monument in the Eastern Cemetery, taken last night. I quite liked the shadow of the fence on the snowy ground. Alonzo was the first Portland resident to give his life for the Union in July 1861.

Narrow Gauge, February 2015

Pictured today is one of the engines of the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad. I'm sure the plow attachment has been put to good use this winter. The Press Herald recently reported that the little railroad will be here until 2017, when it is planning on moving out to Gray, Maine.

Hearts Abound

A heart at the very end of Maine Wharf on the morning of Valentine's Day. The Valentine's Bandit(s) cover quite a bit of ground each year.
