New Colonial Living

My new colonial
apartment is located
in the second floor
of this awesome
Maine-esque Apartment
Home. I think there
is less space wasted
in northern homes.
I am used to the 9 -
10 foot ceilings of D.C.
(Which was probably better
for the climate, the sweltering
summer humidity and all.
It could also be where all
the extra rent money goes.)
Here the ceilings on
buildings are lower
which I imagine is
more comfortable,
even cozier when
it comes to Winter
weather. (Also, more
affordable to heat. If
you're renting an
apartment in Maine,
chances are your
landlord is paying
the heating bill.)
I'll probably
regret saying this
but, I can't wait
for the seasons
here! We are on
the verge of the
picturesque Fall

Trucks Doing Good

this when I stopped to
take a picture of the
Maine State Capitol on
my way to my storage
unit. Notice the
sweet Lobster plates.

I got my SLR out of the
Capital Area Storage unit
a couple days ago. It
brings back memories
of my old, worry-free
D2X days.

Tribute to Development

This is a tribute to my friend Andrew Bain. He grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Charlottesville, Virginia. His family lived there for like 500 years. They have watched the landscape change over generations, literally. Andrew Bain takes fine art photography on the waves edge of mass-development that is swarming agriculture and wildlife with apartment buildings and strip malls. It's happening all over America. I'm noticing it more than ever here in Augusta, Maine. But I remember proof-reading an article in the Kennebec Journal that said Maine has a pioneer plan it is testing to lessen the detrimental effects of development.
An early photo that points at this issue in a slightly different way is Stieglitz "The Steerage." Because the line between development and wildlife/agriculture is somewhat of a class issue.
To see other photos that try to draw attention to land development check out Kim Kirkpatrick's photos. He was an instructor to Andrew Bain at the Corcoran College of Art. I also took a color photo class with Kim Kirkpatrick.
