Out and About ~ Belfast Maine

Always look up! I loved this pattern of utility lines and the retro Santa against the blue sky and scudding clouds.

View of the Passagassawakeag River.

The sun sits low in the sky at 3:00 p.m. creating dramatic shadows and contrasts on the beautiful brick buildings in Belfast. There is nothing quite like November light on a rare sunny day in Maine!

So often, I scoot right past this pretty little town...always in a hurry to be somewhere else, but it is worth a leisurely visit. It is beautiful at any time of the year, you can read more about Belfast, Maine here.

Here's an architectural contrast in today's link from "You Must Remember This."


  1. My sister lives in Belfast, and loves it...a lively little city, just right in scale and mix, with a lively downtown (unlike a certain village we both know only a few miles north...)

    Love the photos of the cornices and rooflines

  2. Thank you Dilettante! For one thing, Belfast has real neighborhoods while there are very few of us inner city folks in the little "village a few miles north..." Everyone is spread so far apart.
