Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – The Polling House Circa 1880-1908, Today An Artist Studio – Saturday October 25th 2014

Historic Commercial Buildings Of Annapolis

The Polling House In Murray Hill Circa 1880-1908 Annapolis Maryland October 25th 2014

There is a bit of disagreement on the date when this small structure was originally built. One historical reference document notes that it was constructed in 1880 while another has it at 1908. In the early 20th century what is known is that it served as a store and then later a residential dwelling. Today the “Polling House” is a well known local painter’s studio. Located in the upper part of the Murray Hill neighborhood in Annapolis it seems the perfect place for an artist to seek inspiration and paint.

I hope that everyone had a chance to get out and enjoy today’s lovely Autumn weather as I did,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – The Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Stanley Norman At Sunrise On Back Creek – Friday October 24th 2014

Sunrise In Annapolis

Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Stanley Norman At Sunrise On Back Creek In Annapolis Maryland October 24th 2014

As Marion Warren’s granddaughter told a friend one day years ago “oh he’s waiting for the light” of which she was referring to him standing in a shoreline field with his camera at the ready patiently anticipating the sunlight to be just right so that he could take but a single photograph.

In a similar way that is what I too found myself doing this morning in taking up a position behind the Skipjack Stanley Norman as it was docked at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. Sunrise was at 7:22 this morning so I arrived just before 6:30 in time to see today’s nautical dawn coloring the sky over the Chesapeake Bay. I too waited patiently as sunrise slowly approached however the dark bank of clouds to the northeast partially obscured the sun rising above the horizon at the appointed time.

Finally at 7:32 the sun began to peer over the top of the clouds as the time became right for taking this morning’s single photograph.

Have a great day Annapolis,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – MainStreets Partnership’s Flower Basket Program • Transitional Colors On A State Circle Lamp Post – Thursday October 23rd 2014

Flowers Of Annapolis

Transitional Autumn Colors Around A Lamp Post On State Circle In Annapolis Maryland October 23rd 2014

One of the more colorful efforts undertaken each year to accent the downtown area of the City is the MainStreets Partnership’s Annapolis In Bloom flower basket program. Adorning the lamp posts across downtown these vibrant ambassadors add both color and natural beauty from Spring until Autumn each year.

Today’s featured photograph is of one such basket hanging above State Circle as the potato vines set within it show their Autumn like hues on this cloudy and windy day.

Perhaps consider taking a walk this weekend to take in the beauty of the flower baskets of Annapolis.

Have a good day everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Autumn Perspectives • Rain Soaked Bricks On A Late 18th Century Inn & Tavern – Wednesday October 22nd 2014

Autumn In Annapolis

The Rain Soaked Walls On A Former 18th Century Inn & Tavern In Annapolis Maryland October 22nd 2014

It has been rainy and windy in Annapolis Maryland throughout the day as Autumn continues to make its presence known in both the lower left and right most sides of today’s featured photograph.

The rain soaked courses of hand made bricks, set above an adjacent rooftop, makeup the southern most wall of a late 18th century inn and tavern that hosted many a notable travelers to Annapolis during its day. The window openings on this same wall were later bricked in as the building was re-purposed for other occupants in the years that followed its use as an inn.

Stay dry and enjoy the rest of your day,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – A Bungalow Style Residence With Vestiges Of Summer Set Beneath The Autumn Colored Leaves On A Nearby Tree – Tuesday October 21st 2014

Autumn In Annapolis

A Bungalow Style Residence With Vestiges Of Summer Beneath Autumn Branches In Annapolis Maryland October 21st 2014

Blogger’s Note: to fully appreciate the architecture, colors and sunshine of this photograph I would recommend that you view the larger size version of it by clicking on the image above.

The first thing I thought of upon coming across this 1930 residence this morning was how unusual it seemed to find an example of Bungalow architecture in this part of Annapolis. While Eastport, West Annapolis as well as the West Street corridor are known for their bungalow style residences the City Historic District is certainly not. The second thought that I had about this morning’s featured picture was the seemingly contradiction between the vestiges of Summer plants and flowers that are set across the front yard along the porch and the tree branches displaying their Autumn colored leaves overhead.

Have a great day everyone,

Glenn

With this year’s United States Sailboat and Powerboat Shows now over its time for things to settle down a bit around the City as Annapolis begins to bask in the colorful splendor of Autumn. This morning’s sunshine cast a dazzling glare not only on the waters of Spa Creek but also the starboard side of this lone sailboat moored off the Eastport shoreline.

Have a great day everyone,

Glenn

I would like to apologize to the readers of my blog for the tardiness in posting Sunday’s picture of the day. Please be assured that it could not be helped.

In any event the featured picture above was taken while I was making my way to a scheduled Autumn themed photo shoot in Annapolis early this morning. As is usually the case I was taken by the variety of objects, along with their respective colors, that a resident had seen fit to place in the corner of their front porch.

Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone,

Glenn
