Parade of Lights 2014

Pictured are two shots from last evening's annual "Parade of Lights" fireworks display. The main attraction was the boats and sailboats decorated in Christmas lights, however, those were quite difficult to photograph from across the harbor.

Old Henry

The Henry Wadsworth Longfellow statue, the centerpiece of Longfellow Square, is decorated for the holidays. Now we just need some snow instead of rain/ice.

Looking into the Past: Longfellow Square

A "postcard view" of Longfellow Square, looking down State Street. Other than the impressive amount of street trees and two-way traffic on State Street, the view is much the same today. The old-timey postcard is from here

March to End Violence: Solidarity for Racial Justice

Here are some photos from today's "March to End Violence: Solidarity for Racial Justice" along Congress Street. The march was put on my several organizations: NAACP Portland Branch, Portland Racial Justice Congress, Southern Maine Workers Center, USM Voices of Difference and Unity, Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, ACLU of Maine and Peace Action Maine.

Equine Find

Pictured is a miniature bust of a horse atop a post on Spring Street.  I'm not sure if this has any current functionality other than decoration, but I imagine you could temporarily tie a small horse or dog up to the post when visiting a nearby house.
