Mark Bilak’s photographs:

Mark, a wonderful Inn guest, sent me a group of photos he took while visiting Deer Isle. Often guests take photos that the Chamber uses in our annual Island Guide booklet. Mark not only takes fabulous scenic photos he also does incredible bird photography. Last year he gave a demo on this subject at our annual Wings, Waves & Woods Birding Festival in May (This year’s dates are May 18-20. You can view the entire festival schedule at www.deerisle.com go to Calendar). He was invited back this year by popular demand and will be giving a demo on “how to stage” bird photography. He is one talented guy!

    Thanks for the awesome video. I zegocnired my two brothers, Mike Cormier and Norman Cormier had commented on your site. Yes, I was the eldest of five siblings from Van Buren, picking potatoes for your dad. I have several potato baskets I purchased while visiting Van Buren on my way back to Ohio. I bring in old photos, and these baskets, to my classroom students and share with them the work many French-Canadian families did to help bring in the potato crops. I also told them, at the time, we were paid 25 cents for picking a barrel of potatoes. There’s alot to remember and share with my students in Ohio. Picking potatoes in Ohio is quite different. I will always treasure the memories and the work ethics it taught many of us while working in the fields. Much continued success to you and your family for continuing the farming business in Maine’s northern Aroostook County.
