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

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Inside Residential Window Decor And Exterior Reflections On Historic Fleet Street – Saturday October 18th 2014

Inside Decor And Window Reflections On Historic Fleet Street In Annapolis Maryland October 18th 2014

Click On This Picture To View A Full Size Version

This period reproduction window on a circa 1784 Fleet Street residence in Annapolis is representative of the type often seen in the Historic District. These types of windows can be recognized by their six over six glass pane double hung sashes set within a portrait style frame featuring an upper flat wooden lintel.

I found the collection of images visible both inside, as well as reflected off the glass window panes, to be of particular notice including the interior sheer upper sash curtain, vases and oil lamp. Of course reflections of the two pumpkins set in an outside window flower box, along with a lone fallen leaf in the lower right hand corner of the window, added a welcoming touch of Autumn to the overall image itself.

Have a great day and enjoy the weekend everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – A City Streetscape And 17th Century Commitment To Education • Eight In The Morning On Historic School Street – Friday October 17th 2014

Eight In The Morning On Historic School Street In Annapolis Maryland October 17th 2014

It certainly was a delightful Autumn morning in Annapolis today. While making my way up School Street I found myself thinking about the significance of Royal Governor Francis Nicholson’s 17th century street plan as well as his commitment to education in the then colonial capital.

School Street represented a formal location for the governor’s establishment of a ‘Free School‘ that would provide a classical education for City children and would eventually, after his departure to be governor of Virginia, be located between the site chosen for an Anglican Church, present day St. Anne’s Parish Church, and the first colonial Stadt House, today the Maryland State House. Of course the early institution of learning that Governor Nicholson had committed himself to establishing would become known as King William’s School and later St. John’s College.

Have a wonderful day everyone,

Glenn

Reflections In The Water Early On An Overcast Morning In Annapolis Maryland October 14th 2014

I was quite taken by the sight of these sailboats tied up at an Eastport dock, along with a nearby piling, as the image transitioned from on top the water’s surface to being spread out across it with such a sense of color depth and clarity. This picture was taken without the use of a filter on the camera and is true to the colors that I experienced for myself.

Have a great day Annapolis,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Rainy Skies Loom Over The Adams-Kilty House In The Historic District – Wednesday October 15th 2014

Rainy Skies Loom Over The Historic Adams-Kilty House In Annapolis Maryland October 15th 2014

Click On This Picture To View A Full Size Version

Cloudy skies and periods of rain have been the order of the day so far in Annapolis. The US Powerboat Show is in its final stages of being made ready for tomorrow’s opening so the waterfront area is a place best not traveled today in my opinion. Instead I opted for a walk in an area that was originally designated as Arundleton, later to be renamed Annapolis, and extensively settled in the late 17th century – denoted by present day upper Shipwright, Market. and Duke of Gloucester Streets.

Making my way up and down the adjacent streets as rain showers fell from time to time I could appreciate how this higher ground, located up the hill from the nearby shoreline of what was referred to as Todd’s Creek over 350 years ago, later Carrol’s Creek and today Spa Creek, made for such a practical location for the more formal settlement of the City of Annapolis. You see the rainfall so far today has caused the water levels to rise along the shorelines in the City although no coastal flooding is expected to take place today.

After traveling up an adjoining street I eventually found myself standing in front of the circa 1773 Adams-Kilty House, as seen pictured above. Certainly representing the Georgian style of architecture, that was most popular with the more well to do of Annapolis during the same period when it was built, its Flemish Bond brick facade and impressive detailed cornice millwork can also be seen on such familiar 18th century City landmarks as the Brice, Chase-Lloyd as well as the Hammond-Harwood Houses on East Street and Maryland Avenue respectively.

Actually the noted English builder William Buckland, who built the Hammond-Harwood House and contributed to the construction of the Chase-Lloyd House, is also believed to have built the Adams-Kilty House as well. To that end the front door, as well as its accompanying design elements, are the very same as those found on the Chase-Lloyd House.

In spite of periods of rain I certainly enjoyed my walking tour of this original City neighborhood today,

Glenn

Annapolis Experience Blog Picture Of The Day – Impulse and Messin’ About Anchored On Lower Spa Creek After The US Sailboat Show – Tuesday October 14th 2014

Sailboats On Spa Creek

Sailboats Anchored On Lower Spa Creek After The Sailboat Show In Annapolis Maryland October 14th 2014

Click On This Picture To View A Full Size Version

Today marks the annual transitional period set between the US Sailboat Show, which ended yesterday, and the US Powerboat Show, that will begin on Thursday, in Annapolis. Sailboats on display at this year’s show began departing from the City Dock area late yesterday as work crews started reconfiguring the floating docks so as to accommodate the arriving powerboats to be featured at this year’s Powerboat Show.

Transient sailboats, crewed by show visitors, for the most part have already departed the area and those that still remain can usually be seen anchored in the outlying water ways of Annapolis as pictured above on lower Spa Creek off Acton Cove.

Have a good day everyone and hopefully the inclement weather being called for tomorrow will clear out before the Powerboat Show begins on Thursday,

Glenn
