Having just come off a very successful two night open studio event last week I carved a few days to take off to shoot. Thank you all for coming to see work in my studio. Let me know if you'd like me to do that again.

I am writing this while on a brief road trip through northern New England. It is easy to forget that some of the best driving roads and places to photograph are, for those of us that live in or near Boston, right in our backyard. I spent the first night in Brattleboro, the second in Littleton, NH and last night in Orono, Maine. This constituted a sweep from northwest in Vermont to northeast in Maine.

Much more driving than photographing on this one but that is often true when looking for things to shoot while enjoying an empty road in a good car. No complaints as the weather has been fine, the foliage at very late summer beginning to turn and there has been little traffic. 

Here are a few from along the way, no order, no sequence, just pictures:

Friday afternoon I took the tour of Rock of Ages, the granite quarry in Graniteville, Maine near Barre. They let you in to see the plant where they make mausoleums, statuary and tombstones, then bus you up to the quarry.

I spent a couple of hours in Rumford, Maine. In all my travels I don't know that I'd ever been there before.

I'm not done yet, although as I write this it is raining and raining hard. Hopefully this won't last and I can move on. I am headed to Acadia today, I hope.
