At the Portsmouth Brewery

Each of Portsmouth’s restaurants has its own distinct character.  The Portsmouth Brewery is certainly no exception, and is one of the older dining establishments in town. This fixture of the seacoast brews its own beer on site and features Smuttynose beer as well (its sister brewery)..and has their own coasters.  One of my favorite things to do is to improvise when I’m out shooting – so a natural fit would be to use a pint glass as a tripod when I don’t have the luxury of a tripod with me.  Always makes for an interesting angle.

Have a Seat | Ri Ra Portsmouth

Today’s image is the first shot in a new series – Eat & Drink | Portsmouth.  The first installation in the series is the richly colored bar of Ri Ra Portsmouth, featuring wood imported from Ireland and a cool mosaic floor and wooden barstools that all come together to create a warm atmosphere and a comfortable place to enjoy a pint.  The restaurant is probably better known for its bank vaults and gorgeous domed ceilings, which you’ve seen before and will likely see again.
