Alleyway | Portsmouth, NH

This alleyway between Ri Ra and Bank of America is drenched in brick.  As the sun set tonight, it just reached above the Ri Ra building (the oldest bank building in the United States – according to the plaque on the front of the building) to graze the wall of the taller building.  I love the grates that cover the windows on the building to the right – reminding me of what things might have looked like when Portsmouth was a dicier place to walk around.

The leading lines of the street bring your eye to the blooming trees lining Market Street, and to the notorious North Church.
