    June Photo Contest Winners: Outside My Door 

    Here are the winners of our June Photo Contest in collaboration with The Maine Edge alternative newspaper.

    ➊ Skye Woods

    Skye Woods

    Skye Woods’ photo had excellent composition and texture, as well as an original choice of subject matter. The monochromatic medium works well because of the strong composition.

    ➋ Tony St. Pierre

    ➌ Holly Wells

    Photo committee member Martin Chartrand said: “I like the tight composition, the way the colors and textures of the tree are pictured that give it an intense energy, and the clear fit with the theme by being something you could only see outdoors.”

    Thank you all for your submissions! We hope to see even more diverse talent in July.

    New Bangor Zine Archive 

    A little while back, I dropped off a bunch of Maine zines to R-Massive/Gigantic Monster Records (who I interviewed for RazzleRose when the blog first got started). They were starting a zine archive of Bangor zines from the late 90s and early 2000s. I knew I had some stuff, so I started digging.

    What I found wasn’t exactly all Bangor zines, and some were more recent– I’m young enough to have not really been participating in zine culture in Bangor until 2003 or so. But I had made a couple trips to buy up whatever zine consignments area stores were still carrying before someone threw them out accidentally or stored them in a box never to be seen again. That is how I ended up with White Man – White Flag and Void zine, among others. Some zines–like Sunshines Underground and The Looking Glass— came out of my own circle of friends, making zines before we knew of the wider zine culture. We’re still making them today.

    It’s my hope when I acquire zines that they can someday be shared more widely, so I’m glad these scrappy cut-n-paste artifacts of Maine zine history are now available online in PDF. Check them out!

    Photo Contest Winners Chosen 

    We had a great time judging the May Photo Contest in collaboration with The Maine Edge alternative newspaper.  Here are the winners.

    ➊ Lily Muscatell


    Lily Muscatell, "Tiny"

    We loved Lily’s photo because it is fun, humorous and lively– great characteristics for a “Spring” photo contest. The yawn perfectly captures that sense of trying to “wake up” after a long… long…  Maine winter.

    ➋ Sandy Olsen

    ” if you don’t know where you are, how do you know where you are going?”

    Sandy Olsen, " if you don't know where you are, how do you know where you are going?"

    This photo was a standout with its beautiful composition and color. I love marshes and ponds in the spring– they’re not the “iconic Maine” of the coastline that everyone flocks to see, but they’re my Maine. This little guy fishing captures the still, quiet damp calm of a Maine spring day.

    ➌ Laura Dunn

    “Daisy with clam diggers; gooserocks beach”

    it's a family thing

    Laura Dunn, "Daisy with clam diggers; gooserocks beach"

    Dunn says that this is “our beloved hen Daisy on an excursion to the beach last weekend.” Daisy does look right at home there.

    We truly enjoyed each and every photo sent to us, and we’ve published more of our favorites in the May photo gallery.

      GREAT PHOTO! Now you know that is one tame chicken if you can take her to the beach!! She looks right at home too! How many chicken beachcombers has Maine seens on it’s shores? Beachcomber: a person /or a chicken … who searches shore debris for anything of worth!
