So here I am in Maine, first afternoon, out driving around, and I realize that I forgot my camera. As I drive there are many things I want to photograph but can’t: my favorite sign, a familiar view, a farmstand stocked with summer produce. I’ll have to make time to take that road again before I head home.
Instead of taking those pictures, I finish my visits, head over for my first night of work to meet the students I’ll be working with for the next week, and then come back to my friends’ house and snap some garden and cat pictures before the sun sets.
The flowers are obedient, standing quietly in the evening sun, not even shifting in the faint breeze.
This being Maine in the summer, the mosquitoes are thick in the air and I quickly decide to move inside. There I am met by Eddie and LaLa, who are not quite as eager to pose for me; but I catch them in their various acts anyway.
and then LaLa:
I’ll have to try to get them to sit still for me over the next few days!
