Morning Mist and Falling Cancer Moon

Awoke this morning around dawn to this view behind our house here in Maine. The waning moon in Cancer falling towards the horizon as a morning mist hovered about 20 feet above ground made for a beautiful setting, which was hard to capture with a camera. But here’s what I caught.

The Don CeSar, St. Petersburg, FL

We stayed nearby last weekend and dropped in for a drink and a stroll of these grounds. Recently acquired by Loews Hotels, this place is THE place on the beaches of St. Pete. Ritz, glamour, etc. Too much for our liking, but beautiful nonetheless. A classic old hotel.

Decided to add a hue the color of the hotel itself. Kind of lends an even more surreal taste to the image. A few more pics will follow, but I think this is one of the best shots I took on Sunday.

American Brick Architecture

Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA and the Shaker Village Community Dwelling House in New Gloucester, ME were built 146 years apart. Their brick architecture is classic colonial America. Although the former is considerably more elaborate, the proportions of the Shaker house work beautifully with the eyes.

Foliage Drive in Maine

So, on Monday we took a drive north through Grafton Notch State Park, then east on East Hill Road down into Andover, ME, and finally down into Portland for dinner. The foliage was near peak, peak, and past peak, depending on where we were¬†situated. Since my wife mentioned that many of my recent posts have been¬†B&W’s I thought I’d post an Autumn medley of color shots.
