New Designs at my Zazzle Storefront!

Look for a personalized gift at Zazzle.

No need to buy anything when you visit my Zazzle Storefront, but I wanted to let everyone know that I have designed a number of new products, from iPhone and iPad cases to men's and women's t-shirts and an all new 2011 Calendar of my best flower images!  Check them all out by clicking on any of the individual links within the panel, or just click HERE to go directly to my Zazzle store! 

Let me know what you think!  And if you would like a different item designed with any of my photographs, just drop me a line to let me know and I'll be happy to do it!  Cindy

A Little Witch on Halloween. . .

Once upon a time, there was a little witch on Halloween. . .
She wore pink striped tights and shoes blacker than midnight. . .
You had to watch out, or she would CURSE YOU! 
Of course, when that happened, the Good Fairy would always show up to say, "Snap out of it!"
Hope your Halloween was as fun as ours was!  Cindy

Ginger Gold

It's a grim, drizzly, rainy Novemberish afternoon here in Portland, Maine, so after eating doing my errands and eating lunch, I headed upstairs to my new tabletop "studio" (an EZ Cube with lights ) to take pictures of some beautiful, locally grown Ginger Gold apples I bought at Rosemont Market.

Anyhow, it was a nice way to spend the afternoon, while listening to Chill Lounge type music on Pandora Radio to the accompaniment of rain on the skylight above me.  Hope this post finds you warm and cozy indoors on this chilly, Autumn afternoon!  Cindy

Chase's Daily, Belfast, Maine

I really enjoyed photographing Chase's Daily, a wonderful vegetarian restaurant in Belfast, Maine over the past year.  Portland Magazine just published a couple of the pictures in their November 2010 issue, but I wanted to share a collage of my favorite shots that might offer you a bit more of the flavors of Chase's.  Chase's is located in the heart of Belfast's downtown at 96 Main Street.  (Phone: 207-338-0555)  They are committed to providing great local produce at all times of the year, as well as wonderful brunches, lunches and dinners.  My personal favorites when I visit are the goat cheese tartlets and the cherry tartlets.  Don't miss this Downeast gem!

In order of appearance:
1st Row: Beets, Bok Choi, Big Squash
2nd Row: Dried Beans, the front window, fresh greens
3rd Row: Gourds and Squashes, peppers, Emily Kourand, waitstaff, squashes
4th Row: Empire Apples, Delicata Squash, Diners in the dining room on a Sunday morning.
5th Row: Mesclun greens, the coffee grinder, Holli Merri, Assistant Baker, Back Door Sign
6th Row: Antique stools at the counter, the famed Cherry Tartlets, Bread for Sale, a squash
