The Daily Portsmouth Turns 1 | Evening Sun on Congress Street

Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the first post at The Daily Portsmouth.  I wasn’t sure that the site would ever reach its first birthday, but I’m here today to happily report that my baby has turned 1!  Thanks to everyone for your continued support and interest in the site – your great feedback  and excitement has helped keep me going every day – and I look forward to the next 365 days of documenting life in Portsmouth.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you keep coming back for more!  It’s been an honor and a privilege to plug into the seacoast’s thriving arts community.

Today’s shot features the Popovers’ building at the corner of Church Street and Congress Street, basking in the early evening sun.  Another take on a familiar spot, the “brick” walkways are fading in the foreground as more foot/car traffic has worn off the red paint – and the new brick of the building at 6-16 Congress Street glows in the sun flare. The chairs are ready for the warmer weather and spring guests, but it was a bit too cold on this evening for anyone to brave the weather.  Rumor has it that the weekend is supposed to be GORGEOUS.  Below is the first shot ever posted here at the site; I hope that in one year’s time I can look back and say that I continued to improve on producing great images.
