Today’s image is representative of the wet weather we’ve been having this week (when I got stuck in the worst downpour of the day on my way to Googie’s for lunch). It’s also representative of the city itself – a fitting image for an evening when we’ll take a look at the last year and a half of images that have graced the screens here at The Daily Portsmouth, in an hourlong slideshow at The Music Hall at this month’s Scene @ Five!
The fog begins to clear on the Memorial Bridge, as its fate became a bit more certain this fall with a commitment from various parties to replace it entirely. The Martingale Wharf building has received its brick face on Bow Street, and the green screen shields the waterfront side of the building before it gets its exoskeleton. The Moran Towing tugboats stand as stoic as ever docked in their home, and The Heritage remains quiet – docked for the winter season until harbor cruises return with warmer weather in the spring. I had a blast gathering images (good and bad) dating back to the early days – and I hope you give yourself a chance to come watch the show in the fancy Founder’s Lobby at The Music Hall.
I’ll be raffling off a 16″x24″ gatorboard (ready to hang) print and also a 20″x30″ print on Thursday night – with all proceeds to benefit The Music Hall and The Portsmouth Museum of Art! It’s important to support our local cultural spots who strive to bring us opportunities to experience and engage in arts of all kinds. I’m thrilled to raise some money for some worthy institutions. Raffle tickets will be $2/each or 3 for $5. Buy a few and maybe you’ll have a nice holiday gift for that special someone! Hope to see you at the event.
