Surf | Bow Street Evening

Surf in the Martingale Wharf is one of the new restaurants located along Bow Street.  In this image from winter 2014, a quiet Bow Street rests beneath a cloudless sky – awaiting the warmer weather and the masses of people that will be enjoying the many waterfront destinations.

The Bridge & The City

Once again I’m revisiting the archives from earlier this year when warmer weather prevailed.  This shot never made it to the website, but I’ve always loved the angular presence of the Middle Bridge from this angle as it leads the eye towards one of the working terminals on Portsmouth’s waterfront.  The New Hampshire State Pier is the closest terminal to the bridge, while the Granite State Minerals loading/unloading sand & salt platform is located just opposite the Sheraton.  You can glimpse the North Church on the horizon in the distance, and the incredible sky this night just made for a mesmerizing sunset and blue hour.

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.

The Daily Portsmouth Turns 1 | Evening Sun on Congress Street

Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the first post at The Daily Portsmouth.  I wasn’t sure that the site would ever reach its first birthday, but I’m here today to happily report that my baby has turned 1!  Thanks to everyone for your continued support and interest in the site – your great feedback  and excitement has helped keep me going every day – and I look forward to the next 365 days of documenting life in Portsmouth.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you keep coming back for more!  It’s been an honor and a privilege to plug into the seacoast’s thriving arts community.

Today’s shot features the Popovers’ building at the corner of Church Street and Congress Street, basking in the early evening sun.  Another take on a familiar spot, the “brick” walkways are fading in the foreground as more foot/car traffic has worn off the red paint – and the new brick of the building at 6-16 Congress Street glows in the sun flare. The chairs are ready for the warmer weather and spring guests, but it was a bit too cold on this evening for anyone to brave the weather.  Rumor has it that the weekend is supposed to be GORGEOUS.  Below is the first shot ever posted here at the site; I hope that in one year’s time I can look back and say that I continued to improve on producing great images.

At Fleet & Congress Streets

In this early evening shot, a pair of motorcycles approach the intersection of Fleet Street and Congress Street.  I like the softness of the clouds above against the grit of the pavement in the foreground.  Here’s a view of Market Square that you don’t see quite as often. I think it’s cool to see the lines of the architecture of the brick buildings as they lead you up towards the square.

Veterans Day & A Market Street Evening

Today I first wanted to thank and pay respect to those who have served and those who continue to serve our country.  Our Veterans’ contribution to our country is immeasurable and its importance is beyond words. This Veterans Day is special as I remember my enigmatic & profound grandfather, Murray J. Cohen, who served our country during WWII and was on the shores of Omaha Beach on D Day + 1.

Here’s a shot of a painting of the American flag as seen in the NYC Museum of Modern Art:

As an added treat, here’s an evening shot of Market Street with the evening glow of the street lamps setting in.
