Goodbye 2014

Another year has quickly come and gone! 2014 was a good year for photography, and I appreciate the visits and feedback from everyone who visits this blog and who follows my work on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and my official photography website

Over the course of the year I had over 80 different clients/customers, which is pretty amazing. Here are just a few of the highlights of my published work. From top left going clockwise: The Courtyard Marriott Portland Downtown/Waterfront, Portland's Downtown District, Downeast Magazine Instagram Takeover, Portland Magazine December 2014, and the Greater Portland Convention and Visitors Bureau Event Planner's Guide.

Christmas in the City

A rainy and quiet Monument Square on Christmas Morning. I'm hoping it snows before they take down the tree so I can get some seasonally appropriate photos of it. I wish you all a Merry Christmas a good day in general.

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

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.
