Sometimes, a photo really does say a thousand words and here in Portland we're lucky to be surrounded by photogenic sights at every turn.

This summer, our wonderful intern – Nora Ibrahim – is capturing the charm and beauty of our little city on Instagram. Here for your viewing pleasure is a peek at a few of her lovely photos. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for much more!
X marks the spot. The view walking westward along Congress Street is a stunner!
The Casco Bay Lines terminal is an iconic landmark on Portland's working waterfront. It looks particularly gorgeous bathed in a warm glow!
Look up! You'll find ornate architectural details on many of our buildings – including the stately Porteous Building at Maine College or Art .
The Thirsty Pig's patio is a cozy – and spectacular – place to cool off with a drink and a bite. That brick and ivy makes us swoon!
