Ceres Bakery | Penhallow Street

Portsmouth is known for its wide array of delicious restaurants.  To the left is Ristorante Massimo (with a happy couple heading in for a bite) – a place I’ve yet to indulge in, but that is definitely on my list.  Ceres Bakery is easily one of the most colorful buildings in town, and they make some good food too.  Took the opportunity with the evening light to snap a self portrait.

Portsmouth Harbor Light

One of my absolute favorite things in the world is the fresh scent of saltwater blowing briskly in the air.  This is a good spot to enjoy it on Great Island Common in New Castle, NH.  With the tide lower you can see the seaweed exposed on the rocks in the foreground.

Vintage Tugboats | Moran Towing

Portsmouth is an old town.  I thought I’d try to capture the timelessness of the waterfront row houses and the Moran Towing tugs that look like they have been (and actually have been) on the City’s waterfront forever (since 1967).  The washed out rainy sky helped create the mood.  Seen in the background is the Martingale Wharf building under construction, The Old Ferry Landing deck, and of course – the Memorial Bridge.
