I’m not overwhelmed with the unpacking or getting back to normal, and there was only one load of laundry to wash and hang on the line.
What is overwhelming however, is the massive amount of photos taken while away. Between my husband and I, a total of 992 images was taken last week. Crazy, I know! And they are all stored on one file entitled “Maine 2009”.
I began the lengthy and usually fun job of processing the photos that I actually like, which are so very many (which is nice) and then I found myself becoming more overwhelmed.
In the end, I thought I’d just better end up taking it slow.
Unfortunately, there are so many choices when processing and I finally just gave up and did whatever I felt like doing. Lord knows, my husband tells me I do this all the time anyway.
I liked this old structure, which is located right in the center of Main Street in Stonington. I think it’s some sort of antique shop.
One foggy morning, I took a drive around the Stonington end of the island, snapping photos of old houses. I found the this deserted house at the intersection of Sand Beach Rd. and West Main. It just looked sort of lonely with its paint peeling and the old boat still in the yard.
[This place] is actually for sale through Sotheby’s and is located along Sand Beach Road overlooking the water.
View in front of the house for sale on a different day.
And yet another day, this is the water view in front of the house. It’s an interesting place, but not very private. People like me are always coming along and taking pictures of it, I’m sure!
Deer Isle is home to a large community of artists and I often saw this woman working on different projects during the week I spent there. That’s the harbor at Stonington in the background.
The town even has an [Opera House]!
Well, I feel better now that I’ve made a small dent in my files. I have a long way to go, though.
I think I’ll get in my little yellow boat and just paddle somewhere. Doesn’t that sound like a lovely idea? This last shot was taken with my zoom lens, sitting on the rocks at Sand Beach outside of Stonington, Maine.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
