Ristorante Massimo

Here’s an evening shot of Ristorante Massimo, a beloved fancy restaurant, which is located on Penhallow Street next to Ceres Bakery and near the Post Office building.  This was taken with a wide angle lens in very low lighting conditions, and I had no tripod so I had to make the best of the situation – so I set the camera down, on what I remember as a railroad tie or some piece of wood next to Ceres.  It gave a cool perspective with some texture to the old pavement on the ground, and some spray paint.  I loved the dark blues of the sky and the combination with the lighting and the red colors of the restaurant.  What are your thoughts?

The Lincoln Tunnel & Streets of New York City

To my loyal Portsmouth followers…thanks for visiting today and allowing me to humor you with another guest city post…Portsmouth will return tomorrow!

On the way into New York City on New Year’s Day, we took the Lincoln Tunnel…which was pleasantly quiet thanks to everyone having the day off from work. After we parked near our destination for dinner on the Upper West Side, I had to run and get some cash from an ATM when I saw the newsstand and the characters below, and had to snap a shot.

Winter in Market Square

Today features another winter scene, and the last holiday shot I’ll share of the Christmas tree in Market Square. Sadly, I also had to return the great 14mm lens I rented from BorrowLenses.com … a bummer as I enjoyed the ability to shoot much closer to subjects and pull in objects in the distance.

New York City by Night (and Snow)

Today’s post features two of Manhattan’s iconic buildings. Above the Chrysler Building can be seen looming over the streetscape, illuminated by the street lamps and cabs all reflecting off the wet streets thanks to the evening’s flurries. Below, the Empire State Building is wearing its Christmas colors and illuminating the surrounding flurries in contrast to the dark streetscape below.

I rang in the new year with my sweetheart in the New York/New Jersey area. After getting dinner on New Year’s Day in the city with friends, I asked (pleaded) for a quick drive past some landmarks to snap a few shots. Always happy to have the chance to shoot!

Jumpin Jay's Fish Cafe | Congress Street

I tend to spend more time closer to Market Square, Bow Street and the waterfront, so I decided it was time to head over to Congress Street to see what I might find to shoot. I’ve always been drawn to Jumpin’ Jay’s for the excellent (albeit not inexpensive) meals, and I’ve always been fond of the hanging fish that marks the restaurant’s territory. I lucked out with the combination of the moody evening shot, and the traffic along Congress Street – which combined for some interesting vanishing point shots. What made this shot for me was the fish’s warm red scarf to keep from getting too cold in the New Hampshire winter weather.
