Police Cruiser | Market Street

Downtown Portsmouth has a few parking spots designated specifically for cabs and police.  This particular evening I decided to snap a few of the Portsmouth Police cruiser parked at the corner of Congress and Market Streets.  You’ll notice a particular feel to the shot, which I attribute to an earlier visit to Joe’s pizza – where some great friends snapped a few shots after a wedding earlier in the evening.  I like to call it the grease feel…But despite the junk on the lens, I loved the colors and the feel of this shot.

  1. Love your pics! But consider using the “Portsmouth NH” tag; “Portsmouth” is full of stuff about Old Blighty as well as our lovely burg.

  2. Your stuff continues to amaze. I’ve had the greasy thumb thing at the hot dog joint across from the Coat of Arms.

    Have you ever taken any Photos at the North Cemetery? I’m not sure it fits your style, not a lot of color and light maybe. I only ask because I’ll eventually be adding a Historical Marker that’s there to my blog. I’ve been trekking to them all, and snapping tourist photos. If you have one, I’d love to thumbnail and link to you or your gallery page.

    The Cemetery and Marker are here: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=North%20Cemetery%2C%20Portsmouth%2C%20NH&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wl

    It’s marked “Union Cemetery” in the center, right on Maplewood.

    1. Hahahhaha – thanks Mike! The worst part was – it wasn’t my greasy thumb! Oh well, cool shot anyway….I’m happy to take a stab at shooting it sometime soon, probably in the next week or two. Is it the Union Cemetery on Maplewood that the last map links to? Not to worry about the spammage haha….also, were you thinking of daytime or nighttime?

      1. Hey Phil!

        Yup, the NH Historical Marker is at the Union Cemetery on Maplewood. I haven’t ever stopped there, but it looks like from Maplewood into the Cemetery is to the Southwest. Heres a pic of it from Bing:

        I have no clue what afternoon sunlight in there will do. And I don’t know if there is an entrance to go in.

        I’m only at 1640 on my blog and the marker is for 1751, so no rush heh! Day or night, it doesn’t really matter. If you can get a shot you like, I’d love to thumbnail it back to youwhen I get there.

        Somehow, my WordPress blog doesn’t always get linked when I comment here, it’s http://mikenh.wordpress.com

        Be well!
