A is for Archway............
And so begins another round for our ABC Wednesday theme. We are now on round 5, and it has taken us two years to complete the previous 4 rounds. Please see the link at the bottom of the post if you are interested in joining us each Wednesday.
This week's A is an archway over a walkway that is part of the historical Strawbery Banke settlement in Porstmouth, NH.
I remember when I was back in my photography class over 28 years ago - one of the images in my portfolio was a black and white print I had made of this same structure.
I like the color in this one, but there was something about the black and white that fit so perfectly with this vintage scene, as this house dates back to the 1800's.
I didn't notice it at this time I took the photo - but if you look closely, you will see Christmas tree lights strung around the whole thing.
I tell you, I was not impressed at all when I noticed that in the post processing.
This whole Strawbery Banke museum area has been kept as original as possible, and those tacky lights just blow me away.
This photo was taken in early October - so there is no way that they could be Christmas decorations.
I am so glad I have the old photo of it. When I find the negative, I will scan it and post it so you can see it in it's true beauty, not this disappointing version.
This is the fifth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
