The sight of holiday decorations continues to be a point of interest for me during my more recent daily walks in Annapolis despite the continuing presence of cloudy skies overhead. Early in the morning this 1821 brick row house caught my eye what with at least six noticeable features that make up this image. As to the house itself it and three other contiguous Federal style brick row houses were built by a Mr. Jeremiah Hughes in 1821. Mr. Hughes was at the time the owner of the Maryland Republican newspaper, a printer as well as a bit of a real estate developer of the era having built four residences near State Circle as rental residences.

This picture was taken shortly after sunrise while the lights intertwined with the porch banister garland were still lit.

Have a good everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Church Circle Gallery Collection • Early Morning Framed Window Images – Sunday December 21st 2014

Window Art Of Annapolis

Windows On 3 Church Circle The Day Building At Early Morning In Annapolis Maryland December 21st 2014

Even as I took this picture the title for it was already etched in my mind, which by the way has rarely been the case with the 1,500 or so previous Annapolis Picture of the Day posts of mine over the years.

Yes the glass panes set within the muntins of each upper story window, well all but one of them anyway, reflected images of the barren upper tree branches visible across Church Circle at St. Anne’s Parish in an Ansel Adams kind of way. Three of the main floor windows held framed commercial pictures set in their lower sashes while the fourth window was covered with a pull down blind I believe.

So with nine distinct window scenes visible on both the second and third floors of the Day Building, each of them architecturally framed in century ago period millwork, I stood there experiencing each image as if attending the opening of a newly discovered street artist’s gallery collection.

Oh yes there seemed to be a tasteful amount of holiday decorations on the building’s facade but then again tis the season.

Enjoy your day everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – I Never Knew That Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer Was A Sailor As Well – Friday December 19th 2014

Christmas In Annapolis

Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer's Bowsprit On Ego Alley In Annapolis Maryland December 19th 2014

Hey I thought that it was a cute title for today’s blog post, besides it was a great photograph to use having both a sailboat as well as Christmas in it.

Anyway I saw Rudolph’s sailboat docked in Annapolis earlier in the morning and believe I would rather see fake antlers on sailboats then cars, if I had a choice in the matter. Besides it would be tough to get an ugly sweater on a 37′ sailboat that’s for sure.

Have a good day everyone,

Glenn

Come Out And Enjoy The Festivities Tonight At The Annapolis Midnight Madness Event – Thursday December 18th 2014

Holiday Events In Annapolis

Tonight, Thursday December 18th, is the final Midnight Madness event in Annapolis for 2014. Shops and restaurants will be open until 11 pm and in the case of the bars as well as restaurants much later. There will be much going on along the historic streets of downtown Annapolis to get you in the holiday spirit so put on a coat, bring a friend and come enjoy the seasonal merriment taking place this evening – you won’t find this kind of ambiance at the Towne Center that’s for sure.

Please note that the purpose of this evening’s post is to show my own support for the merchants and proprietors of Annapolis businesses that bring the experience of an old fashion holiday to both locals and visitors alike each holiday season. Please remember to support our local businesses not only during the Christmas shopping season but throughout the year as well.

 

The following two pictures were taken prior to dusk and show a couple of Annapolis merchant storefronts decorated for the holidays.

Annebeth’s is a wine and beer store located on Maryland Avenue just up from Prince George Street. They will be sampling selected foods as well as having Italian wine tastings beginning at 7:30 this evening. Annebeth’s also has great selection of gifts to choose from as you sip your wine.

So its getting on 6 pm and just about time to kick off tonight’s Midnight Madness event so once again come on down and I hope to see you there – I’ll be the one with camera slung on my shoulder and a glass of wine in my hand.

Cheers,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – A Holiday Wreath On The Door Of An 1880 Historic District Residence – Thursday December 18th 2014

The Holiday Season In Annapolis

A Holiday Wreath And Wood Shingles In The Annapolis Maryland Historic District December 18th 2014

It does not take much, in terms of decor that is, to convey the spirit of the holiday season if the background is right. The simplicity of a single holiday wreath hung on the purple door of this 1880 worker’s style residence in the Annapolis Historic District is just such an example. To me the spirit of the holidays comes forth in the picture above just as clearly as the myriad of lights and garland on display at the nearby Government House does as well.

Have a great afternoon everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Garland, Lights & Bows Adorn An 1880′s Maryland Avenue Storefront – Wednesday December 17th 2014

Holiday Accents In Annapolis

Holiday Decor Adorns A Maryland Avenue Storefront In Annapolis Maryland December 17th 2014

Click On This Picture To View A Full Size Version

When the storefronts along Maryland Avenue are decorated for the holidays the setting itself harkens back to a seemingly bygone era in Annapolis. Yes a time when a merchant’s wares sparkled behind panes of glass along the sidewalk that served to entice a passerby to come closer and see for themselves.

Completed in the early 1880′s the building pictured above is of a Victorian Italianate style and is thought to have originally been a commercial structure with a second floor residence accessible by the door visible on the right side. Take note of the period like millwork, unobstructed window as well as door glass and the subtle green color of the building’s siding. A copper gutter, sans patina, spans the width of this storefront yet in the end I was most content just to see it adorned with strands of garland and red bows, after all it is the holiday season.

Publisher’s Note: Please support not only Maryland Avenue but other City of Annapolis merchants this holiday season through your continuing patronage. Besides you also get to see festive as well as vintage storefronts as well!

Have a very pleasant afternoon everyone,

Glenn
