Congress Street - Portland

Every time I walk in Portland, I seem to find new things to take pictures of. Here are some I took with my new "wide" angle lens. It's not super wide, but I like it.

Fort Williams and three local lighthouses

Portland Headlight and the coast. I missed getting the shot I wanted because my camera zoomed in too much. I've just ordered a wide angle lens to help possibly remedy the situation. I'll have to go back and try again.

We followed the trail away from the big fort and Portland Headlight, and found that there was a mini fort where I hadn't known one existed. I took a few pictures of that.

Made a quick stop to take a picture of Spring Point.

And then headed to Bug Light to take a few more pictures.

Monument Square Alive at Five Free Concert (Pete Kilpatrick & As Fast As) and Deering Oaks Park

I'm glad I checked my email before I left work today or I would've forgotten about the Alive at Five Free Concert at Monument Square. And of course, it started right when I got out of work, so I thought I'd bike up the street and check it out. Pete Kilpatrick started it off.

I met up with a friend who wanted to bike the back cove area, so we didn't stay long.
Inevitably, since I was in the area, and I wanted to snap a few pictures of Deering Oaks Park still, we went over there before doing another lap around the Back Cove.

Yes, I took a lot of very similar pictures, but I don't feel like choosing the best at the moment. I was just very happy with the lighting there.

And then we went back to Monument Square to catch the rest of the show before heading to sushi. These pictures are of As Fast As, as well as the surrounding area.
