photo.blogspot.com/ did just that. Bob Crowe returned to Portland Saturday, and although we had never laid eyes on each other till 8:55 AM July 29, 2012, we enjoyed a wonderful couple of hours together. I picked him up at his hotel, and we headed to Bintliff's American Cafe, a favorite breakfast spot of mine. We settled at a table overlooking a wet Park Avenue and shared our lives over cups of coffee and breakfast. Bob decided on the homemade corned beef hash, and I the classic eggs benedict. After our repast, I took him for a quick overview of the city, up Congress Street to the Hill and Eastern Prom, then down to Commercial Street along the waterfront. I pointed out a few places he might want to stop later to get some shots, and if you check his blog today, you'll see that he did just that. We certainly crammed a lot into two hours. A tidbit that Bob revealed about me? Check out his picture today; Birdman without the ever-present bag. Can you believe it? His blog will be flooded with visits today! Hahahaha! Something about Bob? He has a way with people for sure. His comfortable nature is a plus for him in his quest of portraits of strangers. I saw it revealed when he struck up a conversation and photographed the woman with the 'novel' t-shirt also on his blog today. Thank you Bob! You taught me a lot about how to approach women, even when their husbands are sitting nearby!
Enjoy your week in Rockport!
