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 #25 - Portland Museum of Art

One of the jewels of Maine is the Portland Museum of Art. We have just joined as a family as both of our grrrls show as much interest in things artistic as Tracey and I do. I've photographed a few weddings at the museum and it is a great space regardless of the art that is there displayed.

These are the steps leading from the basement cafe to the main gallery.


General Grant's sword.


Portland's native son (and one of my distantly related ancestors via the Wasdworths) Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.


Heavily PhotoShopped, but I like it even with the banding on the wall. My grrrls admiring, Leonardo's earlier version of La Gioconda.


The painting itself.


The museum's explanation of the exhibit. (Capitalising on the popularity of Dan Brown's work doesn't hurt...all publicity is good publicity.)

Especially love the pic of the museum steps. I followed them down into the picture until I realised they were going up! LOL
