Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – A Cross Gable Roofline And Mixed European Architectural Influences – Friday February 27th 2015

Quintessential Annapolis Residences

An English Tudor Style Residence With Spanish Accents In The Snow Annapolis Maryland February 27th 2015

The subject of this morning’s Annapolis photograph of the day presented a bit of a challenge for me, architecturally at least, as I was hard pressed to settle on a single style in which to refer to the above noted residence. What first caught my attention was the residence’s Tudor like outline accented by the snow across the yard yet its stucco like facade brought a Spanish influence to mind as well. This early 1900′s residence features a cross gable roof with Spanish, or perhaps even Mediterranean, inspired clay roof tiles. Finally the arched setbacks encompassing the front first floor windows along with the open arched entranceway are certainly more Spanish like in style than Tudor.

It seems that the longer I look at this photograph the more uncertain I am as to how to refer to it, architecturally that is. Spanish-Tudor?

Have a pleasant day everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Morning Snowfall And A 1900′s Milking Parlor – Thursday February 26th 2015

Winter In Annapolis

Snow Falls On An Early 1900's Outbuilding In The Morning Annapolis Maryland February 26th 2015

As I stood outside my vehicle watching the snow falling across the grounds of a familiar historic Annapolis residence I thought about the outbuilding, pictured above, and its uses over the years. A garage, storage shed or perhaps a work shop were the first thoughts that came to mind. As I was getting my camera out of the bag a voice rang out “you are always taking pictures aren’t you” at which point I could see the resident of the property standing just inside the back porch of the main house. I said hello and replied to his question with “yes indeed”. While approaching the porch I pointed to the nearby outbuilding and asked ‘garage or work shed?” “Neither “he said “it was a milking parlor for cows many years ago.”

Well that usage never even entered my mind but then again in the early 1900′s, well before the development of this part of Annapolis, the surrounding land was quite rural and its owners grew crops as well as raised livestock, including cows, throughout an area stretching from modern day Forest Drive to lower Spa Creek. What I came to learn from my friend on the porch was that for a time the cows were brought in pairs up from the fields, or barn that had stood a bit down the hill, up to this outbuilding where the milking process took place.

It still amazes me just how much the landscape has changed in today’s outlying areas of the City over the last 100 years or so.

Have a good day everyone and enjoy the snow,

Glenn

Well the sunshine did not stick around very long in Annapolis this morning heck by 10 am it was back to those dreary looking overcast skies once again. In any event this featured photograph is a bit of a cityscape what with the Maryland State House in the background and a view across snow covered Spa Creek docks that in turn continues up Conduit Street to where it meets the beginning of Cathedral Street.

Have a pleasant day everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – The Pilot Express Makes Its Way Towards The Open Water Of The Chesapeake Bay – Tuesday February 24th 2015

Icy Navigation In Annapolis

The Pilot Express Navigates To Open Water On The Chesapeake Bay In Annapolis Maryland February 24th 2015

Even with fields of ice still present along local Chesapeake Bay shorelines the pilot boat crews go on about their job shuttling experienced maritime navigators to the commercial freighters as well as bulk and roll on/off auto carriers anchored in the shipping channels off Annapolis. In today’s featured photograph of the day the ‘Pilot Express‘ is seen having just made its way out of Back Creek and is navigating through the thin ice near the mouth of the Severn River.

Exactly how many more days again is it until Spring?

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – A Snowy Landscape With Greyish Overcast Morning Skies On Murray Hill – Monday February 23rd 2015

Georgian Revival Architecture Of Annapolis

An Early 20th Century Georgian Revival Residence In The Snow On Murray Hill Annapolis Maryland February 23rd 2015

While a bit of the snowfall from last week seems to have melted away as a result of yesterday’s warmer temperatures a fair amount of it remains on the ground here in Annapolis this morning. The overcast skies are also still present yet when I came across this grey colored early 1900′s Georgian Revival residence on Southgate Avenue in the Murray Hill neighborhood of the City the two seemed to complement each others presence quite well.

Have a good day and a prosperous week everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Bulldogs Rudy And Tyson Out For A Walk In The Snow While Avoiding The Ice – Sunday February 22nd 2015

Bulldogs Rudy and Tyson Out Enjoying Their Walk In The Snow Annapolis Maryland February 22nd 2015

Click On This Photograph To View A Full Size Version

Like most of us in Annapolis these days that feeling of being confined indoors for the better part of a week makes us further appreciate any time that can be spent outdoors, even when ice covered sidewalks can make walking a bit of a challenge. I met up with this friendly couple earlier, Rudy on the left and her friend Tyson on the right, who preferred navigating their way along in the snow rather than sliding on the sidewalk.

It is warmer out today so enjoy your time outside but like Rudy and Tyson remember to watch out for those slick spots,

Glenn

Random Photographs Of Annapolis During An Afternoon Snowfall • From A Cialis Like Setting To The Ambiance Of An Eastport Residence – Saturday February 21st 2015

Snow In Annapolis

First of all let me attribute the selection of photographs used in this blog post of mine to exposure not to mention a close encounter with frostbite earlier in the week. In any event what follows are four random photographs taken during our recent “weather event” that one could say covers a small yet eclectic group of subject matter that I came across during an afternoon romp through the snow in Annapolis.

Note: I recommend one consider viewing the full size versions of these photographs by clicking on each individual image – enjoy.

A Cialis Like Old Bathtub Set In The Yard During A Snowfall In Annapolis Maryland February 21st 2015

Okay it must have been the bitter cold that had me conjuring up an image of someone sitting in this old style bathtub as an announcer voiced platitudes about using Cialis. As for myself I choose to sip good wine or bourbon while sampling Girl Scout cookies to put me in the mood, similar to the recently featured events held at two downtown drinking establishments. Actually though I came across this discarded bathroom fixture set in the backyard of a 250+ year old house that I assume was waiting to be picked up and/or disposed of by its owner.

 

Snow Falls In The South Garden Of The Government House In Annapolis Maryland February 21st 2015

This photograph features the south garden of the Government House where I waited patiently for a while to see if Governor Hogan was going to come outside to shovel the sidewalk along the decorative wrought iron fence line. Although he never showed up to shovel this afternoon it would have made for great content that could have been used in his seemingly effective social media campaign. The State of Maryland is in the midst of an unexpected budget shortfall so everyone has to do their part right Larry?

 

A Brief Pause In The Snowfall In The Eastport District Of Annapolis Maryland February 21st 2015

A seemingly serene snowy setting in the Maritime Republic of Eastport. This two story high and two bay wide frame residence exudes the working class roots of this Annapolis district. For the most part I simply liked the way that it looked in the snow as I, and the snow, took a brief break from the afternoon goings on.

 

Snow Falls In The Historic St Annes Church Cemetery In Annapolis Maryland February 21st 2015

Click On This Photograph To View A Full Size Version

No I was not feeling morbid when I took this photograph for actually it represented an unusual stark landscape setting along the normally busy Church Circle thoroughfare. I am sure that a number of you already recognize this scene featuring a few of the crypts and graves located in the historic St. Anne’s Churchyard Cemetery. Set directly behind them is the west wall of the church along with the front facades of Reynolds Tavern and a neighboring bank located across the street seen as the snow continued to fall late in the afternoon.

Its now time to warm my wet feet by the fireplace so please have a very pleasant evening everyone,

Glenn
