up north

January 12, 2011

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

more photos from maine … the house we stayed in had a windowed turret/tower at the top, reached by a ladder from one of the rooms. it was great.

today, i’m liking:
+ the invisible moustache of raoul dufy (via wayne)
+ these images compiled by louise
+ a good article about one of my favorite things in the world, the shipping forecast (i listen to this before bed almost every night) (via CPLD)

    So lovely. And the buoys in the tree remind me of home – it’s a not uncommon sight in rural Nova Scotia, too.

    I really like these pictures. I drove through Maine right after new year’s and it seems like a beautiful place.

      Irene, funny you should mention it – my friend received this book for Christmas and I looked through it. It’s amazing! What a great gift, huh?

    these are fantastic!
    (making me long for the flood damage on our maine farmhouse to be complete so i can go maine-ward.)

    +thank you for the link!
    very happy you liked the sequence:)

    now, just to get true north for those sky-lights.

    happy new year!

    I can feel the cool, clear air and peace everywhere. Beautiful photos.

    I love this post, the track through the forest, the girl eating soup, the sofa under the skylight – all stunning and all make me want a week in a cottage somewhere quiet.

    great stuff. makes me miss maine

    Beautiful photos. Found your site via Pinterest. Now listening to the Shipping Forecast. Thank you! I have no idea what some of the jargon means, but it’s almost hypnotic and meditative. I love that it ends with “God Save the Queen.”

    Hi Brian,
    your blog ( and all it’s loveliness) inspires me daily. It’s funny, you are the second person I’ve heard say that they love the shipping forecast. A girl I know says she finds it calming and it helps her to fall asleep. :)
    Why do you like it so?
    Any chance of another fabulous eight track mix from you?
    How about songs to fall asleep to?
    Happy light filled days my friend….x
