When PenBayPilot seeded its first collection of photos snapped during the early days of the pandemic — those cold, raw days of March 2020 —little did we think that we would be, nine months later, finding inspiration and solace in how we chronicle these times.
But here we are, seven galleries later, with photographers from all over the Midcoast chipping in to keep our eyes firmly on our communities, landscapes, families and friends, helping to record history.
Each gallery has 100 photos, meaning we are now pushing 700 images, each unique and enchanting.
This collection of submitted photos taken by residents and visitors to the state will join Tipping toward Winter, Maine establishes new normal with a sense of grace and Maine weathers a pandemic, Maine springs through a pandemic, Summering on through uncharted times, the Leaves of Change, Finding our Footing, a Hopeful new year, and A Wellspring of Hope.
All these galleries have been built on the love people have for the Midcoast and the natural beauty of their state. The photographers are observant, creative and astute. They help capture our current days.
Stay healthy, stay strong, and keep your cameras clicking!
Generations from now, historians will be looking at your photos for glimpses of how humans coped during a pandemic.
Please continue to send in your photos, tell us what you are doing, and help us capture what we are seeing among the Midcoast.
Send your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will chronicle these particularly historical days.
The Pilot thanks you!
