Went to the beach for the day. Took pictures of a friend and his son. I'll put some select good ones up on the portraits section of my website soon.

Tufts Pond, Oosoola Park and old warehouse

On the way to the camp.

Tuesday was a pretty relaxing day. Went down by the water. It was very quiet and nice out. I could tell the sun was going to come out at least for awhile.

I went back in and everyone asked me how it was out there. I told them it was nice, and they said they were all cold. I decided to go back out because a flower was calling me.

I guess another flower must've called me, because I started walking around the property for something else to take a picture of. I started walking down the road a little, and suddenly my mom's dog thought we were going for a walk. I decided, why not, and followed him down the dirt road. Didn't walk too far, and I saw a few flowers that were purple and pretty.

The boy from the other camp found a frog, so I rushed down to see and get a picture of it.

Today after packing up, I headed to my sister's to help her with a project she was working on. I was supposed to go home from her house, but then I decided last minute, that it was a beautiful day, and I wanted to take pictures of this place I'd passed on the way back home from camp. My mom didn't want to stop, but I knew that it might not be there when I went back to visit, so I would drive back to see it.

I was near the Native American statue that's been standing in Skowhegan for many years. At one point I thought it as gone, and so I decided to take a picture of it in case it did one day disappear.

The same thing happened as I was driving from Skowhegan to Norridgewalk. There was a park that I remembered being taken to as a child. It was called Oosoola Park, and I remembered a fun snail, and other old playground equipment. I had often wondered about it..wondered if it had changed, if anyone used it anymore. Often I just wanted to stop to see it again, and never did. This time I decided I would stop. Why wonder about something when it's right there to be discovered? I was amazed to find it almost completely unchanged!

Finally I decided to go back to the original photo spot. As I was taking pictures of this interesting structure, a woman came up to me and asked me what I was doing there. I said I was taking pictures (which was obvious). She asked why. I said for my portfolio. She said, "well alright" and let me take more pictures. I tried to hurry after that though, because I didn't feel right about being there.
