Welcome to the John Kenealy Photography Blog page. Thank you for joining me on this voyage into the world of photography. I live in western Maine, and enjoy traveling around the state, camera in hand. I try to find beauty in everything around us. Often, it is in nature, but, it can also be a rusty old truck, light shining on a building in just the right way, or anything else that may catch my eye.

I also invite you to share your experiences with me and other readers.
