Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • A Spring Inspired Landscape Adorns a 1930 Homestead Style Corner House • Tuesday April 18th 2017

A Difference in Exterior Colors and Seasons as Well

A Spring Inspired Landscape Adorns a 1930 Homestead Style Corner House in Annapolis Maryland April 18th 2017

Between the remaining flowers on the tree branches and the recent landscaping in the front yard this 1930 Annapolis Homestead style house appears ready for spring. Yet while standing in front of its welcoming front porch this morning I was thinking that the last time I saw it the exterior was painted kind of a Aspen or Sea green color, or at least its stucco covered walls had been.

Still curious upon returning to the office I looked through my photo libraries and sure enough came across this photograph that I had taken back on October 30th 2015. Definitely the exterior walls were painted green at that time while since then, most likely last year, the house had been painted its current dark blue hue.

Regardless of its exterior color, or season for that matter, that it is depicted in this 1930 period house represents a fine example of Homestead architecture in the City today.

Have a pleasant day,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Spring Flowers and Bricks After a Morning Rain • Monday April 17th 2017

Variegated  as Well as Colorful

Spring Flowers and Bricks After a Morning Rain in Annapolis Maryland April 17th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

This current iteration of spring pansies appeared vibrant looking enough earlier today, while at least one tulip is most likely to bloom in the days ahead so as to join these pink and orange variegated ones here along this sidewalk planting bed, all of which are quite colorful indeed.

All in all spring is much more evident on my morning walks in Annapolis now and I for one am glad this is the case.

Have a good week,

Glenn

This Easter themed wreath hangs on the door of a 19th century free standing townhouse featuring both Italianate and Federal architectural details.

All in all it was a most pleasant Sunday afternoon to enjoy both the holiday accents and historical architecture of Maryland’s Capital City on the Chesapeake Bay.

I hope that you are having a very nice holiday weekend,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Early Morning Lights at the Circa 1885 A. Owen Iglehart House • Saturday April 15th 2017

Italianate Cornice and Elliptical Window Arches

Early Morning Lights at the Circa 1885 A Owen Iglehart House in Annapolis Maryland April 15th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

Standing outside Mrs. Iglehart’s building quite early this morning my attention was drawn to both the soft lighting visible from inside the front parlor, as well as the illuminated porch lights flanking the original period four panel wood door.

Mrs. Amelia Owen Iglehart’s 1885 house was built on a lot adjacent to a taller 18th century brick building, both having been owned at the time by St. Anne’s Parish of Annapolis. Having gained possession of the empty lot in 1884 Mrs. Iglehart set about having a two story three bay brick house constructed featuring Italianate details, including its bracketed cornice and elliptical arched windows. One other exterior architectural feature of this house worth conveying would be its English basement, with its entrance set beneath the brick step landing. By the way Mrs. Iglehart used her then newly built house as a rental property.

Mrs. Iglehart came to sell her building in 1896 and the following owners, the Coffmans, would use it for residential rental purposes as well. Interesting enough the building was sold by the Coffmans in 1910 to a Eugene Worthington Inglehart, son of Amelia Owen Inglehart, who owned it until 1917. Mr. Inglehart then conveyed the building to a Mrs. Emily Tilley, wife of Benjamin Tilley a 1867 USNA graduate as well as the first Naval Governor of Samoa from 1899 to 1901. Mrs. Tilley resided in the house, along with members of her family, although late 1920s records indicated that it was again being used for rental purposes. Mrs. Tilley would pass away in 1931 and by the following year her family had sold the building. Eventually there would be five successive owners until the early 1990s, who either resided in the house or rented it out over that same period. To the best of my knowledge, as well as my own personal observations, the English basement is currently used as an apartment while the rest of the house is a single family residence.

This now completes yet another early morning walk through Annapolis architectural history and thank you so much for coming along today.

Have a good afternoon,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Sunrise Window Reflections on the C1760 Pinkney-Callahan House Against an Overcast Sky • Friday April 14th 2017

Chimneys, Dormers and a Church Steeple

Sunrise Window Reflections on the C1760 Pinkney-Callahan House Against an Overcast Sky in Annapolis Maryland April 14th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

This early morning setting was a bit of a contrast to say the least where to the east the sunrise, was for the most part, breaking through the clouds over the Chesapeake, while to the west a mostly dark cloudy sky was quite evident over the nearby Annapolis rooftops.

Of course if the 18th century Pinkney-Callahan House had never been moved to its current location well over 50 years ago, actually its second relocation I believe, than this morning westward view of mine might have been more expansive in the general direction of St. Anne’s Steeple. Then again on the other hand I would have not had such a picturesque historical setting in which to have enjoyed my morning cup of coffee earlier would I?

Have a safe and pleasant holiday weekend,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Harborside View of the Yacht Martha Ann and Tecumseh Condos at Sunrise • Thursday April 13th 2017

A Difference in Height From the Waterline

Harborside View of the Yacht Martha Ann and Tecumseh Condos at Sunrise in Annapolis Maryland April 13th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

Both locals and visitors alike to the Annapolis waterfront over the years would most likely recognize the sight of the luxury yacht Martha Ann tied up at the Annapolis Yacht Basin’s South T Dock during the early spring and summer months. Since having arrived in port this past week she has been the subject of humorous comments on local social media about being for sale with the price having been lowered by $10 million to $79 million. Also a few local amateur photographers have quipped about the reduced price as well while at the same time posting their enhanced images of her.

As for myself after catching sight of her at sunrise this morning it wasn’t really Martha Ann’s current sale price, nor its transient presence along Annapolis Harbor that I was thinking about, no it was her towering height in relationship to the nearby Tecumseh Condominium buildings in the background that I found to be worthy of a photograph.

For you see after years of photographing this 230′ super yacht it was this sunrise view from along her portside bow waterline that more clearly presented its disproportionate height in relationship to all around it that I found quite noteworthy.

Have a great day,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • The Beneteau Moorings 505 Southern Accent Docked on an Overcast Spring Morning • Wednesday April 12th 2017

Guest Accommodations on Back Creek

The Beneteau Moorings 505 Southern Accent Docked on an Overcast Spring Morning in Annapolis Maryland April 12th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

Hanging out at an Eastport marina this morning I happened to notice this 50′ Beneteau sailboat tied up across the docking channel from where I was drinking my coffee. The vessel looked fairly familiar and then I remembered having coming across a AirBnB listing for this same sailboat being available for short term rentals. As an aside I’m not quite sure if guests would be permitted to take the Southern Accent out for a sail on the waters off Annapolis as part of the rental agreement? Probably not.

Actually though shouldn’t this short term sailboat accommodation have been listed on AirBnS?

Have a good day,

Glenn
