Sunday’s Hidden Treasure.

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.

Night time scene depicting Market Square in Portsmouth, NH. A cast iron street lamp, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, and the well lit steeple of the North Church are all in this vertical image.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

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.
