I am on vacation this week am taking a one-week class at MECA in street photography. Interesting stuff. So here is some more street photography, and there is plenty more to come.

This picture below is the Maine Bank & Trust building next to Congress Square. According to the emporis database, the building is also known as the Fidelity Trust Company Building and the Bank of Commerce Building. I didn't realize this until I saw the new signs in the window of the building yesterday, but Maine Bank & Trust is no more. It is now People's United Bank (which MB&T has been part of for several years). So they are repainting the name at the top of the building. I like that when big signs like this one are updated because it allows you to easily identify the age of photographs.

Last night was this summer's 2nd Alive at Five Concert in Monument Square. Main(e) act Zach Jones and opener Holy Boys Danger Club were the bands and they both did a fine job.

Portland's pirate ship is still in town (I think it's the same boat, correct me if I am wrong). No, my camera isn't broken, I was just playing around in photoshop:
Resting on the Eastern Prom:
And this was today's sunrise from my kitchen, pretty interesting:
Portland Daily Photo was recently featured in a post by Erin at ErinCooks.com, a fine food/cooking site. Thanks Erin!

This first photo shows the current exhibit in the Space Gallery front window. The art is by Seokmee Noh, and you can learn much more about it and see a close up picture of it here.
And this photo also has people standing in front of bricks, waiting to get into Marcy's Diner on the corner of Free and Oak Streets. I haven't been here yet but I like the location.

Here's some photos from last week's Wednesday Farmers Market in Monument Square. I'm usually at work when these markets happen but I had the day off. It certainly was bigger and better than I recall from previous visits. In addition to the food and flowers there are several arts and crafts vendors and the booths even spread down towards Free Street a little ways (to the right of this first picture). For more info about the Farmers Market, which is in Monument Square on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-2 and in Deering Oaks on Saturdays from 7-12:
