The Hotel Portsmouth

I’m very excited to photograph the ongoing changes to one of downtown’s oldest boutique hotels – The Hotel Portsmouth (formerly the Sise Inn). This historic structure on Court Street is currently undergoing a transformation by the same team that renovated the historic Frank Jones grain storage warehouse into the Ale House Inn.  As these early images show, the rooms are full of character and unique layouts.

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas

Thank you to everyone for all of your support and kind words over the years and once again in 2013.  As always, I have enjoyed heading out with my camera in pursuit of the character that defines Portsmouth and the seacoast, and managed to see some unbelievable sunrises/sunsets and storms in the process.  I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas to you and your families!

Snowy South End

This has long been one of my favorite vantage points of the historic South End neighborhood.  In this image, a snowy south end basks in soft early morning light a few days after the first storms of the season.

In The Wind on The Gundalow

The Gundalow is one of Portsmouth’s gems – a local community came together to raise funds to construct this replica of a working commercial barge that used to sail up and down the Piscataqua River to transport merchandise throughout the region.  I was fortunate to get out for a beautiful sunset sail this summer on the Piscataqua – and enjoyed sitting beneath this gorgeous sail.

A Glow on Mount Washington | In The Snow

In this image from last winter, there is a glow on Mount Washington in the snow.  The striking peak with its observatory at the summit is home to the “World’s Worst Weather“, but it certainly looks soothing (and cold) from this safe distance.

Christmas in Portsmouth 2013

It’s Christmas in Portsmouth!

The annual tree has been placed and lit for the 2013 Christmas season – with some interesting blueish LED lighting.  A combination of the weather, work commitments and lack of camera plate for my tripod have kept me from getting out to do it justice, but I wanted to share this with those who aren’t in Portsmouth and can’t take a drive/stroll through Market Square to enjoy it for themselves.
