During the cold hour before sunset, I decided to take advantage of being home for the weekend and went for a walk to shoot with the beautiful natural light. Here I was able to capture the new granite sign on Market Street as well as the freighter that arrived this week, and to top it off – I was able to be a part of the shot with the long shadows from Deer Street.

I went for a quick walk in the cold New Hampshire air after work.
The lights of the Martingale Wharf building look beautiful at night shimmering inside the structure and reflecting off the water now that work on the building has commenced, and the freighter that is in port was rather inviting too. Shots of each will probably follow in the next few days, but it was the subtle and inviting glow of The Oar House’s entrance on Ceres Street that won the prize for today’s post. Love the restaurant, and the very intimate feel with the rich colors of the bricks and the wooden beams inside. You can even see a wooden ship in the upstairs window.

Today I first wanted to thank and pay respect to those who have served and those who continue to serve our country. Our Veterans’ contribution to our country is immeasurable and its importance is beyond words. This Veterans Day is special as I remember my enigmatic & profound grandfather, Murray J. Cohen, who served our country during WWII and was on the shores of Omaha Beach on D Day + 1.
Here’s a shot of a painting of the American flag as seen in the NYC Museum of Modern Art:
As an added treat, here’s an evening shot of Market Street with the evening glow of the street lamps setting in.

The Dolphin Striker is one of the true institutions among Portsmouth restaurants and bars. This shot captures the walkway as it was a couple weeks back, before the City began its Ceres Street improvement project. The bricks have since been removed and large pieces of granite have been installed between the walkway and Bow Street. From the looks of the progress, it’s going to be a much different feel to this corner (and hopefully safer too). Check back for updates.

One of Portsmouth’s signs, with some neon flavor. The Rosa restaurant located on State Street downtown.

Ristorante Massimo is often discussed by locals and foodies as the best “special occasion” restaurant and most romantic place for dinner. It’s definitely on my list of places to visit, just waiting for an appropriate occasion.
The building is next to the Ceres Bakery on Penhallow Street, and looks very intimate and inviting with its brick entrance at the corner. Check out the menu and some shots from inside at their website here: RISTORANTE MASSIMO.
