Sign of Spring? Setting docks along the Kennebunk River
I know what Maegen meant by cranes. People all over are folding oragami cranes for Japan, the crane a symbol of giving luck and hope. My photograph means no offense to this beautiful gesture-I think it a lovely and caring thing to do. My thoughts too are with the people of Japan as they face the mounting uncertainty in their homeland.
When I saw the word crane however, this image came to mind. I captured it a week and a half back...early on a Monday morning. It's not often you see a huge crane on barge floating along the river normally reserved for high cost power and sailboats, and for scenic lobster and party boats taking passengers on whale watches and such. I saw this scene as a "behind the scenes" peek at the less glamorous aspects-what happens before the summer party starts. I saw it too as a sign of spring.
