Congress Street & The North Church

Congress Street & The North Church

Icicles on Odd Fellows Hall on Congress Street are the real giveaway that this image was taken during the winter.  The windows of the buildings lining Congress Street lead back to the steeple of the North Church on a cloudless evening.

Sunset in Market Square

Sunset in Market Square

It was a beautiful sunset that I was watching from my office window and spontaneously decided to go and see what the horizon looked like from Market Square.  In this wide angle shot you can see the Portsmouth Athenaeum, the North Church and its iconic steeple, and the glow of sunset down the corridor of Congress Street in the distance.

Summer in the seacoast is a beautiful thing – people come from all over to visit and the energy in the downtown increases significantly.  A trio of kids were playing great music and the late day light in Market Square made for a beautiful scene.

The rhythm of the buildings that line Congress Street have such inviting lines.  When you’re in Market Square, it’s not that evident that the street slopes downward and that the rooflines follow this rhythm – but from the Fleet Street intersection it’s an entirely different scene.

A Night in Market Square

On a foggy evening in Market Square, I decided to take advantage of dry weather and the moody winter landscape.  The lighting allowed for long exposures and the street traffic brought the scene to a whole new level – as the headlights accentuated the curves in the buildings and the streets.
