Thanking Our Lucky Stars

Thanking Our Lucky Stars

 

Inspired by Adam Woodworth’s art talk during our SPA Spring Exhibit, I hopped in my car last night (9pm…really?) for a little “Star Chasing” and drove the loop from Alton, NH to Lincoln, then across the Kancamagus Highway and finally south through Barrington, New Hampshire and Home. Why I was completely alone at 1 am at a scenic outlook, high on the Kanc Highway, is rather humorous, if you think about it! I was constantly talking to myself. Mostly because I was spooked by the darkness and all the rustling in the woods everywhere I went. But the ever-present fireflies kept reminding me that there were nicer things in the dark, as well! And the fox kits running here and everywhere up in the White Mountains were my treat of the night. There were huge splashes in the water at my feet in Barrington that made me seriously grateful I didn’t live in the south for fear of losing a limb. However, the coyotes singing amongst the cacophony of bullfrogs and crickets reminded me of just how special a place that “Bog” will always to me.

And isn’t it funny that during my six hour adventure, I find my most compelling image was taken while laying in my very own driveway while attempting to capture a little slice of “Home” for my daughter living some 5,000 miles away. Yes, I now, I know, the odds are pretty good that she was also star gazing in her own backyard, laying under her palm tree and looking up at the very same sky. But the truth is, there will be no other view of the stars such as this. For THIS VIEW is where our Miss Meagan discovered “HER STARS”!

Now THAT is a Sky Light!

This is my most recent image of the famous historic dome at Ri Ra Pub, at 22 Market Street in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Originally built in 1803, this is the oldest bank building in the Unite States and was admitted to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The huge glass dome was constructed with The Great Seal of New Hampshire and it is the stunning center piece of the building. It is complimented by the a pub interior that was created by Irish craftsmen from the Georgian era and imported from Ireland. I have seen hundreds of color images of the dome, and captured quite a few of my own. But during this visit to Ri Ra I chose to photograph and process the image in black and white, seeing the dome in a whole new way. I found the lines and patterns in the glass to be equally as compelling as the vibrant colors in the glass.
