Portland, Maine is by all accounts, barely a city. With a population of roughly 66,000 (people), it's really more of a large town by global standards, and yet it's managed to become something of a craft beer mecca in the American northeast.

Hi mom! I say that because she's the only one that reads this. Haha, just kidding, my mom is too busy to read my blog.
Alright self-deprecation aside, it's long past time to share my experience with the Olympus PEN-F, a camera Josh and I tested out last month when our friends at Unique Photo were kind enough to lend us one.
First up, the review:Read More
On day two we awoke to an amazing sunrise over the stunning coastline of The Westman Islands. We arrived in the dark the night before, so had no idea what to expect, and were thoroughly impressed by what the golden light of 8:00am revealed.
