Subtle, Leading, Gracefully Curved.
Shapes, Patterns, Textures
Obvious, Repetitive, Intricate.
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.

Here’s wishing you all Happy Holidays.
This weeks “Hidden Treasure” wasn’t really hidden, or forgotten.
But being of a very seasonal nature it hasn’t been looked at since I shared a very similar image this time last year.

My first thoughts for this weeks theme, buildings, bridges, and other man-made structures. Not the usual focus of my photography, but from time to time I will include the man-made.
Enjoy this gallery of my take on geometry.
As Urban As I Get.
This weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme is “Urban.” Since I had already made plans to head into Portsmouth, NH today (Saturday) anyway, I was in luck. Also, since I would rather have a root canal than step foot into a “real” city, Portsmouth would have to do.
The weather wasn’t completely cooperative this morning, and fog prevented me from getting several of the photos I was hoping for. All in all, still worth the effort.
Portsmouth is an “artsy” town, even the graffiti is top-notch.
Okay, maybe not ALL the graffiti is top-notch.
Nothing says New England…
…like a towering white steeple above downtown. Unfortunately the fog made for less than inspiring skies as a backdrop.
Not a bad way to get around town.
I hope these images were “Urban” enough for you.
The road through the forest.
I’ve never been down this road past this point…
…because when I get here and look right, I see this.
Through the mystery hole.
I could spend hours photographing the contents of my favorite Jefferson, NH abandoned barn. Unfortunately, unwilling to trespass, I’m limited to the view through the windows.
Or, as is the case with “Horse Nails” above, through the “mystery hole.” The small square hole between the two windows on the side of the barn below. I would love to know what the hole could have been used for, so if any of you “barnologists” out there have any ideas, please let me know.
