    “If you walk across my camera I will flash the world your story.”
    ― Woody Guthrie

    We bought the MX-35, from the Treasures Trash Barn next to our Motel, for $8.50 and it came with a roll of expired film from Walmart. We had no idea what the photographs were going to look like or how this fixed 35mm camera was going to perform, but we loaded it up, shot, & hoped for the best.

    A story, of a trip to Maine, can be told within these photographs. There is a story told in each one and a story that is left out. I like that. These particular photographs leave out the conversations,  the laughs, the beers, the moosen/meese/mooses. These photographs do tell of the road traveled, the experience, & the fun that was had with good friends in the beautiful state of Maine.

     

    VERMONT //01

    Northeast, about 4 hours from New York City, lies the quaint town of Windsor, Vermont. Windsor is the founding town of Vermont, home to the longest covered bridge in the U.S., Harpoon Brewery, & the late editor genius, to Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, & Thomas Wolfe, Maxwell Perkins. Max Perkins’ home has since been renovated and named  the Snapdragon Inn. The Inn is a 9 room Bed & Breakfast, backing up to Lake Runnemede, complete with rocking chairs on the porch & an old wood-seat swing quietly hanging from an old oak tree. We were spoiled here. The families that operate & own the Inn were polite and very accommodating. {Check out their site for more info} but I must tell you, there are heated floors in the bathroom. Holy freakin’ my gosh! HEATED FLOORS IN THE BATHROOM! We got in late that evening, which happened to be our 3rd anniversary, {Happy Anniversary Dear}, so we stayed in, ordered pizza & had a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to celebrate. We awoke in the morning to the sun creeping in across the natural hardwood floors. After breakfast & coffee in our room we went out for a walk to the lake. To our surprise the lake was completely frozen over and two men were out in the middle ice fishing. It was like a scene from a movie. We walked along the banks and got adventurous walking out onto the frozen lake for a minute, {Only about fifteen feet}, before sliding back to solid ground.

    The scenes around Vermont are surreal and perfect any time of year. We will definitely be visiting again in Spring or perhaps Fall to see the forests ablaze with color. Stay tuned for VERMONT //02, our second post from the trip all about food & craft beer! Enjoy the photos and our little peek into American History.
