Rooflines in The Historic South End

It’s time to feature some of Portsmouth’s real estate, with all the waterfront scenes lately, I wanted to be sure to show the beautiful historic architecture that calls Portsmouth its home.  The South Ward Meetinghouse clocktower can be seen in the distance – which is where Portsmouth Public Media now calls home after the departure of the Children’s Museum a few years back.  The sky and the setting sun reflecting in the windows make this a nice atmospheric shot.

Reflections & Rooftops

Digging back once again through the archives and finding some stuff that I really like – and approaching it with a fresh eye and a different mindset on processing.  It’s brought some refreshing clean light to the homes along the waterfront in the south end in this shot from the fall of 2009.  It seems like eons ago in my photographic adventure….and I’m glad I took the time to venture back.  Hope you all enjoy…stay tuned in over the weekend for a couple fresh scenes never before featured here at The Daily Portsmouth!

The Waterfront & The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard

Today’s post features a new waterfront view that hasn’t yet been featured here at The Daily Portsmouth.  You can see the North Church steeple and the South Ward Meetinghouse in the distance from Newcastle Ave. along with the homes of the South End. In the second shot you can see the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (actually located in Kittery) in the distance with the same boats.  The sign at the bottom is located on the bridge and caught my eye.

The sunset on the horizon illuminates the windows on this historic building along the border of Strawbery Banke.  The newly restored steeple of the South Ward Meetinghouse can be seen amongst the silhouetted branches.
