Camouflage perfectly suited for its environment if you ask me. Not that the gulls are exactly subtle around the docks….
Portland is still an active port, though I’m told far less so than it used to be, for all the usual reasons. It’s a shame, as shipping and fishing clearly made the city what it is, or perhaps what it was; today it’s full of gawking cruise ship passengers, shiny new restaurants with “Artisinal” in the name, and preening hipsters. I tried to focus on what’s left of the real Portland.
