Custom House Wharf


My wife is very patient. I always want to go down weird alleyways and explore the docks. We found this wharf during out visit to Portland, Maine. It is a working fishing wharf with some great old signs and scenes.

Old Orchard Beach Amusement Park


This was made just after Christmas. The tourists are long gone and much of it was boarded up. A few hotels were renovating. It reminded me of the line from Atlantic City by Bruce Springsteen….”Everything dies, baby, that’s a fact, but maybe everything that dies someday comes back”. The crowds will be back and the Ferris wheel will spin again.

Springsteen wrote and sang it, but I prefer the version by The Band.
