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.

Valentine's Day 2015

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Valentine Bandit in Portland, Maine. The unknown bandit's annual tradition adds a welcome touch of warmth to the otherwise cold streets this time of year.

Soldiers in the Snow

A view at night time view of the bronze sculpture on the south side of the Our Lady of Victories in Monument Square. The granite pedestal was designed by Richard Morris Hunt, who also designed the base for the Statue of Liberty (among other things, such as the facade of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina).

Three for Thursday

These three black and white photos are from the last big snowstorm. None of them are extraordinary on their own, but they seem to look okay together.

West End, Streets of Snow

I appreciate the peacefulness of a snow-covered street this time of year. The first photo is of May Street and the second is of Emery Street, both in the West End. Even though these are relatively quiet streets year-round, it's amazing how much a little falling snow can make a street seem very quiet.

Snow Exchange

Looking down Exchange Street during the blizzard back in late January. The snow-obscured vanishing point caught my eye.

Winter Morning from Union Wharf

The view back towards town from the end of Union Wharf.  Other than the lovely glow of a sunrise hitting the buildings in the distance, I like how I captured a couple seagulls at just the right moment.
