Shapes and shadows.

JANUARY 3, 2009

The winter sun in Maine casts long shadows, even when it’s not that late in the day. I captured this view of an old mill building in Biddeford that I’ve driven past many times, but never taken the time to observe. When I was experimenting with angles to take the photo, I found a plaque on the façade that commemorated a stone fort that was built there in the 1600’s to protect settlers from the Native Americans. History has shown, I think, that in the balance, it was the natives who needed protection from the settlers.
