The Music Hall | Portsmouth, NH

One of Portsmouth’s artistic treasures is The Music Hall located on Chestnut Street.  The building was constructed in 1878, and is New Hampshire’s oldest theater – clocking in at 900 seats.  The Founder’s Lobby recently underwent a full renovation, and is gorgeous.  The theater itself was also recently renovated, uncovering beautiful paintings on the ceiling and returning the stage to its former glory.

Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse

A rainy visit to Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse during the open house hours put on by the Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse was rewarded with some nice captures as shown above.  I hope to get back to capture the beautiful winding staircase, perhaps on a day with a little more sunshine.  Nevertheless, the weather was appropriate for a very old lighthouse.
