Blue Doors, Orange Brick
Mary and I spent the afternoon in the twin cities of Bidderford and Saco, Maine. Once the textile weaving capital of America, it is enjoying a renaissance. The Saco Museum gave us a history of the "Mill Girls" (my first job at 14 was in a mill operating a machine!) and we had a lovely lunch at the Portland Pie Company and then an ice cream sundae at Sweet Cream next door. Both establishments use locally sourced products. I loved the minimalist quality of this image and the dramatic perspective of the extra. There was a stunning mural nearby, also an extra, and surprise of surprises, a unicorn enjoying an ice cream cone. Will wonders never cease!
