Deposited three checks this week and billed three other clients. If every month was July I’d almost quit my day job.

One more reminder to follow Down East Magazine’s Instagram to follow along with my adventures around Portland this weekend.

I have a few touristy things planned for this weekend as part of my Down East Magazine Instagram Takeover. The theme is “Weekend in Portland.” If anyone wants to go on an early boat ride to Peaks Island, climb the Portland Observatory, take a tour of the Eastern Cemetery, or get ice cream at Beal’s let me know. I promise not to take pictures of you.

I don’t recall when it began, but it has become the norm to receive multiple emails each week in which people and/or companies want to give me money for my photographs. It really is quite odd, especially where it’s just a hobby and I don’t depend on it financially. I can’t imagine any other hobby I could possibly pursue in which people would want to pay me for.

Check out my ridiculously large photo hanging in the front lobby of the brand new Courtyard Marriott hotel on Commercial Street!

The fact that the time and day that I post my photos on Tumblr directly determines how many people like them and see them leads me to sit on photos for a long time. Is it really too much for you all to sign on at 8pm every other day to help my self esteem? Thanks! 

Could use your vote for my “Blizzard Walker” photo in this contest. Those waterproof panniers would be an asset to my daily commute to work. 

The city of Portland’s new website is up and running at portlandmaine.gov. It’s a pretty neat honor to have provided all the photos that are currently being used. 

Happy to have one of my photos on the cover of the official downtown district guide again. Available all over town. 

Turned down two somewhat lucrative photography offers this month because I am afraid of people. You literally cannot pay me to attend social gatherings. But maybe I should hire someone to do these sorts of jobs for me and we can split the profits.
