This year is quickly coming to a close, but the blog queue is still deep with 2010 photo collections. I try to keep it fresh and maintain a balance of photos, interesting viewpoints, service complaints/rants and things that make me go huh? Linda and I were lucky enough to go on some pretty nice trips this year which means our hard drives have been riddled with photos this year. It is far easier to make comments on things if they are still in short term memory so rather than push this off to next year, let’s go ahead and dump the Phoadtography collection from the Maine trip we took in June. There are a lot of them so be warned, your browser cache is going to get a workout. For sanity purposes (yours and mine) this post will actually be a two parter. For those who don’t know what Phoadtography is please check out my previous post… especially if you are preparing to unleash your fury on how bad some of these shots ended up being.
Starting off this set is every kid’s favorite toys and more importantly, the machines that pay both our salaries. Guessing due to the stimulus money (that actually got spent on job creating projects), we encountered a lot of construction on our way out and back to Maine. Most travelers probably cuss the slow downs and stoppages, but in the case of my wife and I the sound of Caterpillar machines in motion is music to our ears. As mentioned in the introduction Cat machines are always a good target for Phoadtography shots. This vehicle is one of our articulated trucks that, if I remember correctly, are produced in Waco TX.
Pretty cool machine if I say so myself. Hit the jump to see the rest of the pictures in this post.
