On Sundays the Waterville House of Pizza has $3 cheese pizzas.
The HBO miniseries "Empire Falls" was actually Skowhegan and Waterville, and some other surrounding communities of Maine. Because Paul Newman died I went to photograph the now famous Empire Grill.
Betty Anne Hofmann and Diane Engler, both of Skowhegan, exit the Empire Grill which was made famous by the filming of the HBO miniseries "Empire Falls." Hofmann's son Greg worked in wardrobe for the movie. "In fact, I had Helen Hunt's sneakers for a while. They didn't fit her," said Hofmann. "I wore them out."

I shot a Haitian music program at the University of Maine at Farmington.
Conductor Jean Bernard Desinat, of the well-known Haitian choir Les Petits Chanteurs, directs as the choir sings a selection of music based on traditional Haitian songs. The choir played in a program along with The Holy Trinity Music School Chamber Ensemble of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Friday night at the Nordica Auditorium at the University of Maine at Farmington.

Surprisingly to me, one of my favorite assignments is shooting high school football. Here is a shot for a feature story on local Messalonskee High School's coaching staff.

Rollovers are common, but not so much on bridges. This driver was lucky.

Here is a picture I took yesterday on my way to the Common Ground Country Fair. I love border collies. They are my favorite breed.
Tricia the border collie waits in the cab of her owners' tractor Friday afternoon in Fairfield. In the background Wayne and his uncle Lee Hapworth both of Winslow, wait in the hayfield for a belt to be delivered for their round bailer. Wayne said it has been difficult to put up hay this year due to too much rain. "But we should have a nice fall this year because of the rain," he said. The forecast says the next chance of rain this week will be Saturday night.
