Donut Tree

Andy | Thursday, August 30, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Walking on a trail I came across this odd shaped tree. My guess is that when this tree was younger another tree fell on it turning it into a freak of nature. A more romantic version would have been that's it's a left over from the War Of 1812.

Morning Paint Job

Andy | Saturday, August 18, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

I was out for my early morning walk when I came across this young lady painter. This was at 7:05 a.m. and I was not expecting to see a sight like this. She was so wrapped up in her work that it took three calls from me to get her attention. I asked for permission to photograph her. She did grant it but could not understand why I would want to take a photo of her painting.

Invasive Plant

Andy | Saturday, August 11, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Purple loosestrife is an exotic wetland perennial that invaded North America in the early 19th century. Native to Europe, this highly invasive plant was thought to have been introduced from the ballast of ships who used soil to weigh down the ships or by settlers to be used for their flower
gardens or as a medicinal herb.
Since its introduction to North America, it has become a serious invader of wetlands, roadsides and other disturbed areas. In 1992 the leaf eating beetles, Galerucella calmariensis were approved by Canadian and US governments for release to control the plant. The beetles are natural enemies and have shown to effectively reduce loosestrife populations by up to 85% and allow native
vegetation to become established.

Lighthouse - Maine

Andy | Tuesday, August 07, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Nubble Light, also known as Cape Neddick Light Station. The park that overlooks this picturesque lighthouse is called Sohier Park, donated to the Town of York by William Davies Sohier. This picturesque and often photographed lighthouse features a charming, Victorian keeper's house with gingerbread trim and a lantern with miniature cast iron lighthouses on its railing. When NASA officials picked photos for the Voyager Spacecraft, intended to identify the Earth if the craft fell into extraterrestrial hands, they included a photo of the Nubble. The station is off-limits to the public except for occasional tours by Friends of Nubble Light, but it is easily viewed from Sohier Park in York Beach, about 200 yards away. Cape Neddick "The Nubble" Lighthouse was built in 1879

Signs, Signs - Texaco

Andy | Wednesday, August 01, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Texaco gas stations disappeared from Canada in 1989 when they were sold to Imperial Oil with retail operations converted to the Esso brand. When I took this photo there was no one around to ask about this building. Judging by the other signs on the building I assume the owner is a sign collector. I'm linking to Lesley's Signs, Signs.
