SLEEPING WILLOW
A raccoon dozes on a branch of a Willow tree off College Street in Lewiston.  The property owners have had fun watching it, but plan to trap it and call the animal control officer before it gets hit by a car or creates problems with neighborhood pets or trash cans. *** Local Caption *** @Normal:Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal

The Patriot, left and America One do a splash and dash where the pilots lower their baskets into the water and then lift off again in the Androscoggin River between Lewiston and Auburn.  The most frequent opportunities for these photos are in the morning as the wind is often too strong during the evening launches to allow pilots to do this maneuver safely.  Depending on the wind direction, the best opportunities for this type of photo will come from either the Longley Bridge or the walking bridge between Railroad and Bonney Parks.  If you are at Railroad Park in Lewiston when the take off, you can quickly determine the direction they are traveling and make your way to either bridge in plenty of time for a photo like this.  Even though this photo has the entire balloon and reflection in the photo, you can zoom in close to the basket and get the reflection and the basket and not have the actual balloon in the photo. You should be careful as the light can often reflect off the water and with the bright sky in the background, your camera meter can be fooled, underexposing your film resulting in poor color reproduction.  To be safe, if your exposure on your camera can be adjusted, take several photos using different exposures:  have your light meter read too much light in some of the exposures.

About 5 years ago Yusef Nouri, 18 of Auburn was on vacation at Old Orchard Beach when he first noticed people skudding with giant kites.  He immediatley went out and bought a small one to learn the technique.  He now can fully enjoy all the various methods on water, snow, and Sunday he was just taking some short flights on the soccer field behind Auburn Middle School on a gusty afternoon with some friends.  While it is a fun and exciting sport, it requires a lot of practice before somebody can fly one safely and get the most out of the relatively new sport.
