11/19/11 Bangor

Time for an easy day so downtown for an hour and a half. There were lots of people about for Kelley to greet and lots of things to sniff. It was a bit cold and I wished I had brought gloves but it was an enjoyable outing anyway.

In spite of several nights of frost this rose was still hanging on.


  1. I like your Bangor posts most of all...

  2. Thanks PP, for commenting. I have a non hiking photographer friend who says he gets tired of " all those trails".

  3. wWAW a TV with opening for DVD and VHS?
    long time since I've seen one of those
    cheerful and amusing photos
    it's like an conversation between nature
    and civilization
    not sure which one is the host or the guest.
    in difference to the former photos from hiking
    you're presence here is more notable
    so you're not looking at something
    or being an absence guest
    but more of being somewhere with a bit more
    of a chutzpah, if you know what it means.

  4. Chutzpah in a positive way of course

  5. Thanks for your thoughtful comments Anon. It sounds like you also prefer the city photos.

  6. As a matter of fact, I do like the Bangor photos better than "all those trails". I must admit you do have many excellent landscape shots.

  7. Royalty and peasants are equally treated
    as John W said:
    You did indeed made an excellent landscape shots
    and Wile the new ones are more Contemporary
    they retain the same excellency
    But what is an instant compared to eternity
    One might argue?
    as Gnat from a puddle, who am I to say:
    That is better or the other,
    as a leaving creature the instant is where i belong
    later the eternity awaits.
    There is an load of sensitivity in most of your photos, old and new
    through which, One could easily tie bond with, eternity or instant.
    we are hitchhiker's at your journey
    you decide

  8. Hi Anon. When I started the blog, it's purpose was to start a dialog with other hikers and the emphasis was on documenting hikes and hoping for hike suggestions. That dialog did not materialize and the blog has become more photo oriented.
