The springtime colors continue to flourish around the city. These trees lining a walkway through Prescott Park are in full bloom, accentuated by the green grass and the overcast skies above. I’m always amazed at the opportunities around the city to sit and take in the many views – both historic and natural.

One of the largest and most beautiful stretches of green space in Portsmouth is quietly tucked behind the Moffatt Ladd House on Market Street. The first time that I saw this lush garden – it really struck me at how long and expansive the historic lot was – since I’d only really seen the main historic building and carriage house from the streetfront. Buildings on The Hill can be seen at the upper left corner while the Piscataqua River Bridge can be seen off in the distance at top right.

The Memorial Bridge stands tall above the rooflines of downtown Portsmouth. This shot, from the balcony of 100 Market Street, highlights a variety of buildings – both new and old – and some perspective on one of the hot topics in town these days (building heights). St. John’s Church tower also stands tall in the frame with its instantly identifiable yellow and green colors.

Nearly anyone who has ever spent time in the seacoast will agree that The Decks are one of Portsmouth’s unique attributes, with waterfront dining available to enjoy the view of a working waterfront. It just so happens that the decks all have a gorgeous view towards the west, which typically has a magnificent view of sunset as the clouds & sky get interesting when the weather warms up.
This shot was taken from the deck of the Martingale Wharf, which was a bit quiet due to the temperature not climbing out of the 40s/50s quite yet – but in a month’s time, all the decks will be flooded with patrons from near and far. Despite the temp – we still enjoyed a quick afternoon snack/beer while we watched the sunset.

One of the more interesting additions to Portsmouth’s dining options this past year has been the Book & Bar in the Custom House on Pleasant Street. I highly suggest you check it out – great ambiance complete with used books, coffee, food, beverage…as you’d expect with a name like “Book & Bar”. They did a great job restoring the interior and maintaining the character of the structure – great beams, high ceilings, fireplaces, etc.
I’ve been planning to begin shooting a few new series this year, and I think this shot will fit perfectly into one of them. Stay tuned – I’m looking forward to sharing more in the months ahead!
