Custom House


Another first light photograph. I had a gap of time available between hither & yon. Rather than let it lapse into the ether, I headed over towards the Maine State Pier. The typical views are to the east, off across the water, into the glare of the rising sun. The tide was low, so none of the three schooners were riding low below any good view point. This left the views to the west & south.

Southward along the harbor, a few lobster boats were active. Westward is the Portland peninsula.

After parking the car along Commercial Street, I had already taken the atypical shot of the imposing Custom House. Now, from the pier, there is a different imposing view. I like this view as it adds a ‘towering over’ perspective and is what ships see when they enter the harbor.

The gap of time closed and I went on into the remainder of the day, sated by the early walkabout.
