We’ve had a warm spell here in Southern New Hampshire. Our annual ice fishing contest was scheduled for Sunday morning (and may have been held) but as of Saturday afternoon, almost all of the “bob houses” were off the lake. As an alternative photo shoot, a friend and I headed up for a hike in the White Mountains. On the way, we made these images at Lake Winnipesaukee.
It’s been difficult to find time and subjects for quality images. We had a warm day last Sunday and I went hiking on Mt. Wachusett in Central Massachusetts. The mix of warm air and snow created a thick fog. It was strange going by the wind farm. I knew the huge turbines were there and could hear them but did not see the one in the image until I was right on it.
I will be away tomorrow, hopefully making some photos. The annual ice fishing contest is scheduled but it may be canceled due to the warm weather. If all of the little shacks are pulled in, then a friend and I plan to head up to the White Mountains for a hike with a scenic overlook…if there’s no fog, that is.
Much of the interior of South Station is modern. Some of the original architecture remains. Overall, it is more vibrant. It was dingy prior to the renovations. It is a more pleasant place to spend time, but I miss the long woods benches on which to wait for your train and the bakery where I could get a big black and white cookie for a dollar.
I wanted to show South Station during its heyday. The exterior image is from 1902 when the streets were cobblestone and there was an elevated track outside the station. The facade extends further along each street. There is also an image of the huge train shed into which the trains pulled for passengers to board and disembark. Finally, I could only find one image of the interior of the station, the ticket windows. It was similar to this still when I used to take the commuter rail into South Station in the 1980s.
