I’ve been… I’ve met

Two songs come to mind when I recall our recent adventures – On The Road Again and I’ve Been Everywhere.  Now while we were on the road again, we weren’t quite everywhere but we were somewhere.  Still with me?  Even though this place was our last stop, I am making it the first in this travel series because of something special.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire was founded in 1630 and there are many interesting and historical spots around there.  This is a shot of some historical home that I failed to get the name of.  Maybe the friend we met in Portsmouth for drinks and “chowdah” by the waterfront can help me identify this.  What building is this Chris, Milford Street, Senor Calle?

    Teri: it was wonderful meeting you and DH. I hate to disappoint, but I am at a loss as to what this building could be. I don’t think it is part of Strawberry Banke. I looked and it did not match any of their photos. The answer may need to wait until my next trip to the coast. Cheers!

      It was wonderful meeting you too, Chris! I zoomed in on a sign in one of the other shots and it says Moffatt – Ladd House 1763. At least I think the sign is pointing that way 🙂

        We wandered around where you took us and to the bridge and around there. We even got to see them lift the bridge.

        Moffatt – Ladd House it is! Good eyes. Yes, that is a cool old bridge.

    It looks like a blue building with white trim and sunflowers along the steps! 😉 Nice photo.

      Something along those lines but it is a historical house (I think) see above reply. Thanks.

    Great shot of the sunflowers in front of the house – did you blur the background or was that the sunshine?

      It’s called shooting with shallow depth of field to focus on the foreground and have the background not as sharp.

        I need to upgrade my camera.

        If you have a camera that allows you to do F stops then you can do this.
