Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life.

Or Lack Thereof…

At the hours I’m normally out with camera and tripod in hand, there is rarely another soul in sight.

Case in point, this photo looking into Market Square in beautiful Portsmouth, NH.

Notice the clock on the steeple, 6:20. And that’s a.m. which is actually a late morning for me.

In a few hours, this picturesque area of Portsmouth will become alive with the hustle and bustle of cars and pedestrians, tourists and locals alike. Thus creating an entirely different atmosphere than the peace of early morning.

Happy Holidays from Jeff Sinon Photography

Season’s Greetings

To all of my fans and subscribers, I’d like to wish you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season.

This past year has been very good to me as a photographer. Many of my images have found their way into people’s private collections. I’ve licensed the use of more photos than ever before, as well as having sold my first magazine cover.

I have all of you to thank for it.

My never ending goal of creating better, more compelling photographs, ones that keep you all coming back, has made me the photographer I am today.

Thank You!

Capture The Color

Capturing The Color

Again this year the great folks over at Capture the Colour are sponsoring their “Capture the Colour” photo contest. 

And again this year I’m throwing my hat, er my images, into the ring.

Not remotely as well-traveled as many of my blogging friends, my travel is usually confined to the wild and scenic places of New Hampshire.

Enjoy the Color!

Red

Autumn Road

Autumn Road.

Though red is not the dominant color in this image, I chose it for the brilliant reds found in the foliage. Red is the reason, along with the yellows, oranges and golds, that so many flock to the region every fall. 

Autumn in New Hampshire is certainly worth traveling to.

Winter wonderland. The snow covered mountains of New Hampshire.

From the mountains to the sea,

We have it all here. Without question, New Hampshire is worth a visit.

I’d like to invite the following bloggers, all of their photographs and travels I greatly admire, to take part, and with luck, win!

Tina

Zhang Wenjie

Julie

Paula

Lucy

All of the above create excellent imagery, and most travel way more than I will ever be able to. (Big bonus, only one of them is likely to kill me for including her :-D) I encourage you all to stop by their blogs and pay them a visit.

Portsmouth, NH Photo Walk

One of the brick paths, with a white bench on the left, leads deeper into the Prescott Park garden. A bright red, leafy plant dominates the right foreground, with the garden seen deeper into the frame on a misty morning in Portsmouth, NH

This Saturday, July 13th, I’ll be hosting my first ever photo walk in beautiful Portsmouth, NH.

Colonial era homes, beautiful gardens, lobster boats, busy Market Square, plenty of things to keep your shutter finger busy. And that doesn’t include all the shops and restaurants!

If you’re in the area please joins me for a fun, and free, day of exploring this picturesque seacoast town.

I’ll be meeting a few hardy souls in Prescott Park for sunrise, where I’ll then wait for those less inclined to get out of bed so early, before then wandering the town looking for photographic inspiration.
