Today’s image is a quiet scene at high tide on Monday before the brunt of Sandy’s wind gusts arrived. The freighter looks as though it might float into the alley or into The Oar House’s deck.
The rich yellow color of this historic home when paired with the red shingles on its roof make this icon one of the Seacoast’s most distinguishable along the Piscataqua River’s back channel. The Wentworth Coolidge Mansion belonged to the state’s first Royal Governor, who served in the mid 1700s. The rooflines help to tell the story of the additions and how large this home actually is.
After the sun retreats and before night sets in, there’s this magic time of day that photographers like to call the blue hour. This particular evening, following a nice cloudy afternoon, the storefronts on Market Street were illuminating the sidewalk and the colors of the buildings complimented the rich blue evening sky in a way that I had to shoot. A simple glimpse of an evening strolling down Market Street.
A crescent moon rises over Congress Street downtown.
