Strawbery Banke in the Afternoon

Here’s a unique view of Strawbery Banke in this image taken last fall.  Everything was still green, and I still had my tilt-shift lens…so I went around experimenting, and found this shot that I’ve been waiting to share.  I love how the lens plays with the angles of objects, like the fence at the lower right corner – and the prominent roofline of the old home to the left.  The flag on the steps seals the deal for me, in this nostalgic feeling shot of the historic neighborhood.

Memorial Bridge & North Church

Two more square shots are featured today, a tilt-shift view of the North Church taken as the sun sets from Market Street and a shot of the Memorial Bridge taken as the sun rises.

Miniature Market Street | A Huge Thank You

  • Here’s a unique take on Market Street, with Footnotes (local shoestore) in the closest window to the right.  Loved this tilt-shift shot of the infamous shopping locale downtown, particularly with the glowing windows and bricks, and the out of focus lights towards the left half of the frame.
  • I also wanted to take the opportunity to thank EVERYONE who came to see the opening at the Portsmouth Art Exchange gallery this evening. I’m grateful to have had such a great turnout for my first show, even if there were only 10 prints to see….a really fun night for me!
  • A very special thanks goes out to my parents (pic below w/brother Jon) for making the trek from Massachusetts to enjoy the evening, my lovely lady Steph for helping select the prints for the night, Ocean Bank for all of my great colleagues’ continued support, Mark Dearborn (& the Infinite Imaging crew) for designing/printing such beautiful save the date cards & posters, J.L. Stevens for the opportunity to be featured in the Portsmouth Herald’s Spotlight magazine, David Young (& the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra) for his continued support & interest, Lisa Mills for her continued support, Brian Matiash (another New England HDR guru) for making the trek from MA – and countless other locals from coming to say hello, and for new folks for coming and sharing their thoughts on my work (and to everyone who was there in spirit). Thanks to Jane & Paul at the Art Exchange for their interest in having me at the gallery!  A truly special evening that I won’t soon forget!

Sunset at the Golden Gate Bridge | San Francisco

A post last week featured some shots taken from the Marin Headlands during a lovely sunset in San Francisco. Today I thought I’d share more shots from that evening, not so tightly cropped on the bridge and the moon.  The sun creeping around the corner of the headlands was great to slowly watch disappear, and the setting sun’s light on the red bridge is incomparable.  I’ll share a cliche shot of the entire bridge sometime soon too.

Congress Street By Day | By Night

In this case we’re talking about Congress Street by Sunset and Congress Street by Dusk – close enough to fit the bill for the Portsmouth By Day | Portsmouth By Night category.  This is one of Portsmouth’s busiest streets as evidenced by the steady flow of cars throughout the day….and during the summer it might take about 5x as long to travel through town.  It’s a good thing that Portsmouth is a picturesque place, sometimes it’s not so bad to just cruise along.  Hope you like.
