South End Street

 

The South End of Portsmouth has always had a special place in my heart.  Tiny streets, old houses, historic clapboards, charm.  It makes me love our dynamic downtown that much more, and appreciate the unchanged wcharacter of this area as well.  Lucky for these residents, the city has invested significantly in its infrastructure – repaving and adding brick sidewalks whenever possible.

Last Light from the Memorial Bridge

To end the weekend, I decided to head out and see what the clouds were doing – and I found myself walking the Memorial Bridge so that I could have a clear view towards the sunset on the horizon.  The wind was steady and unforgiving, but I managed to get a few solid shots before wandering up and down the waterfront. The sun had just retreated behind the Sheraton, but its rays were peaking out from behind the clouds, which paired nicely with the steady stream of the Piscataqua River as the tide went out to sea.
