It’s snowing… beautiful little white flakes of snow falling ever so gently outside my window, making me feel excited for the upcoming holidays. And here I am playing catch up with posting my daily photos. You’ve seen perhaps January, February, March, April, May and June. If not, click on the months in the previous sentence and it should pop up. Now, it’s November on the calendar and July on my computer. Celebrate a little warm sunshine, blooming flowers, beach scenes, lobster and fresh berries. And then get back to the snow. 🙂
“In the summer, the days were long, stretching into each other.
Out of school, everything was on pause and yet happening at the same time,
this collection of weeks when anything was possible.”
If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I’m playing catch up just as fast as I can. This 365 project has been so fun and I truly enjoy making an image every day. In fact, I LOVE it! Processing the images, however, has really bogged me down and so when I find myself with some free time, I work on catching up.
June was all about summer. Lupines — oh, those lupines!! I could photograph them all day, and in fact, I believe I did. The farmers market bustles in the Oaks, warm trips to the ocean cleanses the soul, and the blooming of early summer flowers makes my heart sing. This month’s weekly excursions included Pemaquid, Bailey Island and Ogunquit.
Let me tell you this. My work — my personal work that’s just for me — takes a back seat to almost everything. What a shame, right???! And this year my personal work is greatly comprised of my 365 project … one photo every day. I’m loving the shooting part but boy, it’s the processing after that bogs me down! So here we are in November — one week until Thanksgiving — and I’m posting for … wait for it … May!!
In addition to, or perhaps complementing, my project 365, I incorporated a weekly photo excursion to Maine lighthouses and other iconic settings that I had been wanting to capture. Every summer seems to go by in a minute, so this weekly date (a.k.a. self-inflicted assignment) caused me to be intentional in how I spent at least one day out of my week. My friend Joanne joined me for what turned out to be a whole lot of sunrises with a side of breakfast. You’ll see our first two trips this month …. Bug Light and Spring Point. Both lovely. Couple them with the beautiful early morning light? Pure joy!
So, better late then never, yes? Enjoy, and feel free to share and/or leave me a comment.
“I knew this much: that there is objective time, but also subjective time…. And this personal time, which is the true time, is measured in your relationship to memory.”
Thanks for catching up with me! Contact me to schedule a session, coffee or a chat!
March Madness. It comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, it definitely came in like a lion as I was scheduled for a flight from New Orleans to Portland on March 2, only to have it cancelled because of a Nor’Easter. L O T S of snow. So I flew out two days later, was here for two weeks, and guess what … two more Nor’Easters hit. Yowza!
So here’s my merry month of snow, beach, crawfish, scrabble, knitting, nashville and the Grand Ole Opry, and just basic madness … in pictures. #playingcatchup

Remember when I said that personal work takes a back seat? You can click here for a refresher. And now you’re witnessing just how true that statement is. Today is July 3, and it is hot and muggy. Seems like a great time to post my February images, don’t you think? 😉
According to all the moments I’ve captured during February, I’m pretty sure I started in Maine and spent the better part of the month in New Orleans. We enjoyed our sweet little granddaughters, partied Mardi Gras style with family and friends, started a knitting project went to the beach (that was definitely down south!), and even though the weather was on the chilly side in the Crescent City, it was nowhere near the cold New England was experiencing during the winter.
During this hot hot hot … hot …. spell, you may want to find some air conditioning. Then take a look at the images that follow. I recommend reviewing them s l o w l y so as to breathe in some of that coolness. Enjoy! As always, your feedback is welcome! 🙂
Thanks for being here. Watch for more catching up on my 365 daily and personal project!
