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.

Over the years I’ve enjoyed trying new things with photography, as technology now provides an incredible amount of opportunities to refine the raw product of a photo. Lately I find myself more drawn to the cleaner look and feel of the natural environments in an image, partly due to the colors and tones in the sky at sunset and the appearance of water.
In this particular shot, the Harbour Feature is docked at the State Pier after colliding with the Sarah Long Bridge. In just a few more weeks, the bridge should be operational following millions in repairs.

Another image from the familiar scene at Portsmouth’s Commercial Fish Pier in the South End. Looming in the background is the North Church and to the far left you can spot The Music Hall’s theater roofline. I decided to take a more classic approach to this scene, as I imagine it hasn’t changed much in the past few decades.

This is another of my favorite waterfront destinations in Portsmouth – the commercial fish pier. Portsmouth’s parks and incredible access to the waterfront are one of my favorite parts of this season, when the sun sets later and the temperatures are inviting enough to enjoy a walk late in the day without bundling up too much.

Construction continues at a fast pace on the new Memorial Bridge. Both towers now stand equally tall, with the current work focused on completing the electrical and mechanical aspects of the construction. In a few months, you’ll likely be walking or driving over the new streamlined structure noticing its many details.
One thing I’ve noticed so far is that the bridge takes on an entirely different look depending on the angle and position you’re looking at it from. Sometimes I love the appeal of the new structure, and sometimes I truly miss the elegant and curved lines of the old bridge.
