Yesterday was a great day here in Maine! I got up really early and went to Lewiston to watch the hot air balloon festival. What a great site! There were 20-30 hot air balloons all taking off at the same time (dawn!) I'll have some more photos to post soon but here is a sample of what's to come!
After the balloon festival we went to the Farmer's Market in Deering Oaks Park in Portland and got some local produce. Maybe I'll have a kitchen soon to cook it in! (We're supposed to close on our new place this week! Yeah, no more hotels!)
In the evening we went up to Freeport and watched a free concert by Ingrid Michaeson at the LL Bean stage. She was fantastic and it was a really great night! Besides her own great music she did a cover of Radiohead's "Freak" that was awesome!
Today is about getting caught up and ready for this week. I still haven't gotten out much to take photos but things should slow down a little soon.
There certainly isn't any shortage of beautiful places to shoot in the area. Below is from early morning trip I took to Cape Elizabeth. (Foggy, waves, lighthouses. Basically coastal Maine.)
