My images from Portland Magazine's April 2010

Some of you may know that I have this month's cover, which I was very happy about.  I took photos of this interesting street circus, called "Excuse me Sircus!" last July, on a Friday evening when we were visiting Portland Museum of Art.

The next couple of pictures is from the Portland Harbor Hotel, only the first of which made it into the magazine, but I had to include my favorite image from the elegant bathroom.  It also has an amazing tub, which I didn't photograph.  I would love to have the opportunity to stay in such a nice room someday!

The next set of pictures came from Dr. Charles Carpenter's wonderful loft apartment on Monument Square in Portland.  The article's author, Meagan S. Riedmann and I had so much fun visiting the apartment.  It has such wonders as an authentic church pulpit, complete with a red leather chair at the top and Maine's only glass elevator.  In order to get to the penthouse part of the apartment, Meagan and I had to follow Dr. Carpenter out onto what felt like an extremely rickety fire escape, four floors above the ground, and we were both very nervous, despite Dr. Carpenter's lack of fear!  I wish I had taken pictures of how frightening it looked to us, but I was, well, too scared!

The final image is from Yordprom Coffee, a brand new authentic Thai coffee shop at 722 Congress Street, Portland Magazine's old location.  They are very gracious and welcoming at Yordprom and I really enjoyed photographing the baristas hard at work.

I hope you'll pick up a copy of the issue so you can read all of the articles and see my pictures "in person" as well as reading my very favorite part of this issue (and one that I had absolutely nothing to do with,) the interview with folk icon, Dan Fogelberg's widow, Jean Fogelberg.  It brought me to tears a couple of times and was very sensitively done.

As always, you can click on any of the images to see a larger version.

Best wishes everyone and thanks for reading, Cindy

Thanks for mentioning me on your blog! I had so much fun the day we risked our lives for that story and photos. I think it turned out amazing!

Hi Meagan,

Sure thing! That was fun and your article was great! The only scary part was that damned fire escape, huh? I could definitely have done w/o that, but I wish I’d been daring enough to take pictures of where we had to go to get to the penthouse! Lol! I’d also love to try that elevator sometime. . .


welcome to my world!
