However, a lot of people were in the Two Lights State Park enjoying the view. I snapped this photo of the coast with a couple who had set up their chairs and were just enjoying the view. I have this photo of the Portland Coast online in color as well, but I really like the feeling of the black and white.

This morning, I walked to the bank to deposit a check and was walking down Fairfield Avenue when I noticed this mural* on the wall. Given the tiny nature of Tremont proper, I was stunned that I hadn't see it before. It was a great way to start the day.
*note - unfortunately, I only had my phone and it would not take the entire mural. I was trying to be crafty by taking two pictures and photoshopping them together. Unfortunately, I moved and the perspective of the second picture changed. I am going to take another photo and update later.

I digress. The coastal area of Portland is very beautiful and sprinkled with light houses. The one in the photograph is Portland Head Light. My friend, Shannon, told me this light house was one of the most photographed light houses in the United States.

My office mate, David Mead, was a speaker at the Web Association last week.
He gave a presentation on Micromedia. I snapped this shot with my camera phone during his presentation. Due to the less than stellar zooming capabilities, he is a bit far away. However, I think see the attendees in the audience adds a bit of mood.

Well, I haven't really seen any cops outside of Starbucks drinking coffee in awhile. I did see an armed security guard, but that doesn't count.
As I was walking toward the building today, low and behold, there were 4 cops outside of Starbucks. I had to use my phone to shoot the photo and do it from further away. Cops don't like you to sneak up and take pictures, so I had to be covert.
I played with my phone a little bit after I took the picture because I think they heard the camera sound from my phone. Yikes, a near escape.

Even better, the tour walkway cuts through a series of churches and narrow pathways. It feels a bit like you are cutting through yards when you are a kid.
This photo shows the begging of the Gateway Walk that originates at St. Philip's Episcopal Church in the cemetery.

I like this picture for a couple of reasons. I not only like it because the chalk board feels a bit down home, but the language on the board helps it really connect to the fact that this is a Southern farmers market, y'all.
There is a famous area of town called Rainbow Row, however, I really felt that is orange townhouse was one of the best ones in town. It is also very typical and has a lovely palmetto tree in front of it.
Since South Carolina is the Palmetto State, I thought it was fitting.

I really loved Charleston and it was great to be able to be on the water and go to the beach.

I am visiting Charletson in South Carolina. This photo was shot out of my hotel window. I am on the 10th floor of the Francis Marion Hotel. It has a great view of the city and the water. Just beyong the church is one of the bridges that go between the barrier islands.

The sign in the picture - I just noticed it this morning. However, I have no idea how long it has been there. This one was at the bottom of a telephone pole.
I remember having a conversation with a friend in Tremont about the signs and he had never noticed them before - he was a Tremont native. Of course, at the time, they tended to be either very high, very low or in an obscure place.
I guess it also makes me realize that most people are not very observent.

I had seen a third one somewhere, but I couldn't remember where it was. I was going to post photos of all three of these birds, but just decided to post this one.
I like the juxtaposition of the brown paint and the white rusted sign. I wish I could remember where I had seen the third bird (the second is at the intersection of Literary and Railway Avenue.

The choir invited a few of the onlookers to join the stage and sing the song they had just finished. It was really fun and everyone got involved with the choir.
I stayed around for a few more songs and enjoyed the sun, songs and wonderful afternoon.

I hotfooted it up the hill and managed to snap this picture as it was going through the bridge.

This picture of Young Adam (or White Trash Adam) is just that type of picture. After an impromptu margarita party at the office last night, my co-workers and I headed to the Map Room.
As I am writing this post, I am also reminded of another random weeknight when Young Adam was jamming. I think the upcoming holiday has folks at the Optiem offices getting a little zany.
