My photo
I been a professional photographer since I worked for the US Government documenting Test and Evaluation of Research and Development projects for the US Army and US Navy in the later half of the 1980s. I came home to Maine to finish my Marketing Degree at USM and began to work full time in Market Research and Marketing for many years while documenting weddings and occasional photojournalist and commercial jobs on the weekends. In 2001 I again returned to photography as a full time trade and have never been a happier man. I love working with creative individuals, couples, small businesses and select Non-Profits and can’t imagine working in any other trade. In 1987 I was lucky enough to wed my high school sweetheart and we now live in a cozy little solar powered, recycled bungalow a mile deep in our woods in the Western Hills of Maine with our two brilliant home-schooled teenage daughters and our three cats.

PAW 2006 - Wk #10 - Frost Heaves



frost heaves jar your bones
they are a Maine Fact Of Life
the roads calm down soon.


These signs start cropping up all over town in rural Maine this time of year. With the drastic swings in temperatures that we experience in the Spring, the Earth buckles underneath the tar roads and causes upheavals called Frost Heaves. These signs are supposed to warn motorists that the road is bad and that they should slow down. Of course, we've got so many frost heaves in 'Main St.' that this is how you usually see the sign as you are driving by...



UPDATE: More On Frost Heaves.
