He He


My brother the JakeMonster sleeps in our parents' bed with his beloved Blankie on Aug. 14, 2010, two weeks before his tenth birthday. JakeMonster has had his Blankie since he was born, and called it "He He" for years.

Me and my disposable camera took an Amtrak train to BOSTON on the famed Boston-Maine line. If you've read a John Irving novel, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

I met fellow MU J-grad (!!!!) Ivy Ashe at the Museum of Science, and we took the T (that would be the Boston subway) all over the city. Pizza, trains, bridges, sunglasses on a gray day... it was an amazing adventure!

I am loving living on the East Coast. Seriously.

The Fog


The fog rolled in at Crescent Beach, Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I had never seen anything like this before. It was like a horror movie on the beach, but, you know, without the really scary stuff I don't like.

A Rocky Shoreline, Portland Head Light


Meg Wiegand came to visit me in Portland! We did (and ate) everything one could do in a Portland weekend. One of many highlights was the Sunday afternoon trip to the Portland Head Lighthouse. It was cloudy, and the water was VERY cold, but a late lunch of lobster rolls was wonderful.


Someone built rock sculptures. They're cool.

Both of these images were made with a disposable camera. I bought two on a whim because they're small, light, durable and really simple to use. I didn't always get the best results, mostly because they don't focus very well, but they were fun to make pictures with.

On The Road

Check it: I drove over 1,000 miles over two days to get from Georgetown, Kentucky to Portland, Maine.

Traveling 2

The rest stop where I had dinner in New York featured wi-fi and a sunset overlooking a lovely lake. Oh, and it was lovely and cool outside!

Traveling 3

Construction on I-86 E in New York after dark. After being marooned on a detour in Cleveland, Ohio for three hours.... let's just say that I was desperate to get to my hotel!

Traveling 5

After the hell that was Day One, I was really glad to see the very pretty countryside on I-88 E between Binghamton and Albany, New York.

Traveling 6

I paid $3 to drive for 10 minutes in New Hampshire. I do not like toll roads. THIS WAS A VERY GOOD SIGN!

Hey, I moved to Maine. I pinch myself a lot. See a few more photos from the road on my flickr photostream.
