    Published 6/8/2017, taken May 2017: "I had the pleasure of visiting Sheepscot Village where my daughter will get married in early June. She fell in love with Maine after vacationing in the area. While dealing with all the wedding preparations and talking to the caterers, I had some free time to take photographs. These shots were taken on a little walk over a bridge that led to a small dock in Wiscasset. I’ve been shooting since the ‘70s, going all the way back to slide and film photography with SLRs (which seem like dinosaurs today, sadly). "
