Open Doors Manchester

Open Doors Manchester is an arts and culture tour being held three times this year. A number of museums and galleries are admission free, have special exhibits and/or serve refreshments for the evening. The trolley, pictured here and yesterday, makes a circuit of all of the places that are participating.


Buy a Taco, Save the World

Tonight after work, we went into Manchester, New Hampshire for their annual Taco Challenge. Over forty downtown restaurants sell their version of a taco for $2 each. People will line up down the block for some of the treats. We had pulled pork tacos, fish tacos, Cajun chicken tacos, braised short-rib tacos, taco pizza and a blueberry filled crepe. The downtown was filled. The best part is that all of the money from the sales goes to charity with each restaurant choosing a charity. I took these snapshots…trying to buy and eat food while making photos is a bit of a challenge. Cheers =)

Christmas on Elm Street

Last spring, I completed a photo project capturing life on Elm Street in Manchester, NH. I’d promised a friend to make some images of the Christmas lights along the street. Here they are. They are a bit grainy, because I cheated a bit and did these by hand-holding tha camera and using a high ISO, rather than using a tripod. What can I say…it was cold, damp and windy and I can only suffer so much for my art – lol.



I took a break from shooting photos on Manchester’s riverfront to get a few photographs of Cremeland, across town. My plan for this old-fashioned drive-in was to process it into monochrome, but the sky was just too pretty a shade of blue. Also, I may have accidentally had an ice cream cone while there.



Yesterday, I posted a sunset shot that people seemed to enjoy. I had said it was not the subject matter I went out to shoot, but a “happy accident”. This was my intended subject. It is Manchester NH’s minor league ballpark. I’d not realized how much foliage had grown up around it. This was taken from a pedestrian bridge just down river from it. It would look good from directly across the river, but that would mean shooting from the highway off ramp; not exactly a safe proposition.
