I am obsessed with this old shed out in the back of my house. I return every season camera in hand and can always find something new to photograph. I love the deep textures of the old gray wood, the burnished colors of the rusted metal and the reflections in the old, stained windows. I stood on a step stool to get this shot. I wanted to be even with the window. I see so much going on in this photograph. Soon the first flakes of snow will fall and winter will bring its own story to the shed.
I was walking around the old Strawbery Banke area in Portsmouth, NH, yesterday morning when I discovered a small clearing. Strawberry Banke is a restored neighborhood dating back to the 17th to mid-20th century. The clearing was scattered with remnants of old stone walls and had a little path leading by some interesting tree formations and then to an old arbor covered with grape vines.
