The Hotel Portsmouth

I’m very excited to photograph the ongoing changes to one of downtown’s oldest boutique hotels – The Hotel Portsmouth (formerly the Sise Inn). This historic structure on Court Street is currently undergoing a transformation by the same team that renovated the historic Frank Jones grain storage warehouse into the Ale House Inn.  As these early images show, the rooms are full of character and unique layouts.

The Portsmouth Athenaeum

The Portsmouth Athenaeum building located downtown in Market Square is one of my favorite buildings in town, very distinctive with its rising and falling roofline and the cool things on either side of the front door, which I think are from a ship (but I’m not sure of their historical context/significance).

It’s on top of this building that the floodlight shines to illuminate the North Church, and also hosts a webcam for Foster’s Daily Democrat (click here for live shot).
