This watchful guard appeared on the stairs while we were on line to buy dinner at Langsford Road Lobster and Fish House in Cape Porpoise. I was pleased to capture this little moment, and here are some others I spotted during our week in Maine.
Beyond the lobster rolls, rocky shoreline and beautiful sunrises, vacationing on the coast of Maine can have a wonderfully calming experience. It’s not so much about what you do, it’s more about how your day unfolds and experiencing what’s right in front of you. That’s the charm.
We recently spent a summer week in and around Kennebunkport and Cape Porpoise. (On one day, we traveled up to Portland.)
Of course, I practiced my photography on this environment and brought a camera everywhere I went. Some shots I intentionally looked for. Others presented themselves quite unexpectedly. It’s in these natural moments where the best opportunity to capture ‘the charm’ lies.
Last week, I shared my week-long exercise capturing sunrise timelapses. Now, here are my photos from our trip!

I spotted batches of daisies in so many fields.
An industrious caterpillar photo-bombed my flower shot.
This yellow flower seemed to greet the sunrise.

This is the iconic lighthouse shot.
During our walk in the park, I accidentally came upon this photo shoot for a clothing brand.
Sunrise on the Mudflats
The clouds glowed purple in the magic minutes before the sun took over.
This is ten minutes later.
I’m taking it all in. (Thanks to my friend Rick for capturing my moment.)
