The View from The 100 Club

The view from the top floor at 100 Market Street, from the private balcony of the 100 Club, must be the best in the entire city.  You can see across the Piscataqua River to Kittery, over to the Memorial Bridge and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard…and looking westward you can see both the Middle Bridge and the Piscataqua River Bridge towards Newington…and you can see all the winding rooftops of Market Street leading towards the North Church and Market Square.

Thanks to Catapult Seacoast and the Business Speaker Series the organization has put together, I was able to enjoy a fascinating evening listening to Chase Bailey…and enjoy a few minutes out on the wrap-around balcony that is one of the beautiful features of the 100 Club.  I’ve got a few more cool shots that will make their way up over the next week or so…but today is a taste of the eagle-eye vantage point.

Ceres Street in the Fog

Earlier this week, the weather was pretty darn hot – and the mornings were ridiculously foggy.  I’ve always loved these stairwells on the back of the Ceres Street rowhouses, and the thick misty fog only added to the aura they bring to the streetscape.  The brick walkways and leading lines are cool, and my favorite part might be the flower petals that have fallen from the hanging plant that are strewn around the watermark.

Come visit tomorrow for some shots I snapped from the 100 Club – where Catapult Seacoast held its latest event in the Business Speaker Series that featured the fascinating mind of thinker/painter/scientist/filmmaker Chase Bailey of Left Bank Films.  Some beautiful shots await…
