The Tugs After The Storm

One of the most memorable sunsets I’ve ever witnessed after powerful thunderstorms cleared out of the area – fully illuminating the brick buildings of Bow Street and creating a rainbow over the Memorial Bridge.

Full Moon Over The Tugboats

Full Moon Over The Tugboats

These are a few of my favorite things….. I finally made it out to capture a shot that I have envisioned for at least the past year! With a newborn at home and a new sleep schedule, I finally made it out in time to catch the sunrise and the setting moon over the tugboats! Hope you enjoy

NO PARKING

NO PARKING

If you have spent time in Portsmouth in the past few years, chances are that you had to do some searching to find a parking spot (especially if your visit started in the evening hours).  Portsmouth has an acute parking shortage and the city has been working to identify a location for a new parking garage for more than a decade.

On Monday, May 4th, people will have an opportunity to speak in support of a bonding request to FINALLY build a new parking garage.  Some people think that a shuttle and a location outside of the city’s downtown represents a cheaper and better solution for the parking problem, but I strongly disagree as it’s a more expensive long term band aid to address the issue.

Please consider going to City Hall on May 4th.  Visit Portsmouth Parking Problems on Facebook for more information on how you can help.

The Waterfront

Portsmouth’s waterfront and its historic buildings, the decks and the tugboats in the early morning light after a light winter storm last November.

Tugboats & Snow Drifts

Tugboats & Snow Drifts

The snow drifts from the incredible winter of 2015 have almost completely overtaken the railings at The Decks.  The snow drifts make for some interesting flow lines and somewhat soften the industrial waterfront of Portsmouth.
