I Think Of You Night And Day…

walk 5I went for a walk across the bridge tonight, Modern Philosophers, to get that beer I mentioned in the poem I published earlier.

What a gorgeous night to be out for a stroll, and I’m so glad I had the phone’s camera available to take some photos.

Thought you might enjoy going out for a little fresh air with me.

The sun was still in the sky when I left The House on the Hill, but it had set by the time I was ready to walk home.

Now you can decide what you think of Maine in night and day…

walk 1I really love this photo, Modern Philosophers.  The sun is setting over Bangor, and it is reflected in the Penobscot River.  So peaceful and beautiful…

walk 2The sky and water were so blue, but you can see the bright sun trying to force its way into the shot from the right side of the photo.

walk 3After another loud, bustling day in the office, this shot allowed me a much needed moment of Zen.  Perhaps I should make this my screensaver at work…

walk 4My side of the Penobscot River as seen from the Bangor side of the bridge.  Obviously, I live on the good side of the river!

walk 5This is my favorite of all the photos I took on my walk.  I love the sky behind the silhouetted city of Bangor, the rippling river, and just enough of the oncoming traffic to give the shot a little action.

How can you look at this photo and not love Maine?

walk 6My side of the river again, this time, taken right at the town line.  That church belfry to the right looks so gorgeous at night, but I couldn’t quite capture it with the camera phone…

walk 7The sky looked so much more colorful when I viewed this one on my phone.  Nice job screwing up the beauty of it all, WordPress!

walk8Trust me, the night sky was amazing.  If only I had a better camera.  Thank goodness my followers have amazing imaginations and can simply picture it in their minds…

walk 9The House on the Hill awaits on the other side of the bridge.  It’s been a long day, so it’s nice to be home.

In case you’re curious from reading the poem that came before this…yes, the Lightweight Champion has retained his title.  I’m not going to tell you what I’ve done in my tipsy state, but let’s just say I used my words.

Hope you enjoyed this little night and day walking tour of Bangor.  Goodnight!

    You’re the lightweight champion? Are you sure? Did I ever tell you about the night I met my husband – he had just a couple sips of cheap rose wine and got all flushed and giggly, talking about how when he drinks “things” tend to happen. It was really cute.

    Beautiful! But no way could I survive the winters there lol. I’m such a delicate flower.

  4. Ah, so know I now, you’re a romantic at heart.

  5. Lovely walk this time of year. I’m afraid the winters would be too much for me, even though I survived 7 years in South Dakota and Minnesota.

    Nothing like the air in Maine! (I used to spend summers in NE)

    This is a beautiful post, Austin. I love the bridge work, day and night, night and day. Your camera phone did it justice. Yes, it undoubtedly looked better with the eye, but this is pretty darn great, my friend. Indeed.

  8. These photos sure beat the winter time blues and mountains of snow, now I wouldn’t mind living up there in the springtime. Glad you retained your lightweight champion status…I think 🙂

    Do you know, the earth is very beautiful? And while my sunset might be your sunrise (or my sunset might be your midnight, or small hours, or blazing afternoon hours), your part of the earth looks very much like mine. When the evening lights shine on the water I think of very nice summer dinners on the waterside. I never had one of those. They sound fantastic. Very enjoyable pictures! I hope you enjoyed your walk also.

  10. Unless you ended up on stage doing bird calls to “Yellow Bird” – when you don’t even know bird calls, with all of your co-workers, after one glass of wine, my title is safe. Being called Tweety each morning at work for a year means I earned it fair and square. It also meant it was time to give up alcohol for good! 🙂 I’m betting you called your old girlfriend though. If so, I reluctantly pass the title.
    Beautiful pics! Thanks for the tour.
