Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Circa 1885 Federal Style House Adorned with Weathered Wooden Shakes • Thursday May 18th 2017

The Bright Sunlight Makes the Blue Shutters Seem Lavender

Circa 1885 Federal Style House Adorned with Weathered Wooden Shakes in the Annapolis Maryland Historic District May 18th 2017

What first caught my eye about this circa 1885 Federal style house this morning was how the blue window shutters, front door and side gate seemed more of a lavender hue in the bright sunlight. Then there was also its distinctive looking weathered wooden square shakes adorning both its facade and outer walls.

While certainly not all that unusual an example of late 19th century vernacular architecture in Annapolis, although the afore mentioned blue-lavender hues make it a bit unique, I thought it made for a good photograph of the day.

Have a great day,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • 110 ft Motor Yacht Victorious Docked at the Yacht Basin Early in the Morning • Wednesday May 17th 2017

Just After Sunrise Along the Harbor

110 ft Motor Yacht Victorious Docked at the Yacht Basin Early in the Morning Annapolis Maryland May 17th 2017

Annapolis Maryland certainly hosts its share of transient luxury yachts over the course of the boating season as was evident early this morning. Tied up along the South T Dock at the Annapolis Yacht Basin was the white hull with orange trim motor yacht Victorious showing every bit of its almost 110′ length and surprisingly enough, although not quite apparent from this perspective, 25′ beam. Built in the United States in 2006 the Victorious displaces 231 tons yet has a relatively shallow draft.

I came across the Victorious soon after sunrise this morning as I was preparing to head out on the Chesapeake with a friend for run down to the Solomons for the day.

Have a pleasant morning everyone,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • The Late 19th Century USNA Band Member Joseph Sedlacek House • Tuesday May 16th 2017

The Late 19th Century USNA Band Member Joseph Sedlacek House in Annapolis Maryland May 16th 2017

Even after years of taking walks along the residential streets near the US Naval Academy in Annapolis I still manage to come upon another late 19th century house built for, or lived in, by an individual associated with the Academy during the same period.

Such was the case at midday today for I found myself standing in front of the circa 1885 house of Austrian immigrant and member of the late 19th and early 20th century US Naval Academy Band Joseph Sedlacek. Mr. Sedlacek and his wife Catherine, along with their two daughters and sons lived in this Federal revival style house until 1930 when Mr. Sedlacek passed away. As an aside the house though would remain in the extended Sedlacek family through the early 1960s.

Have a good day,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Empty Osprey Nest on the Severn River off Horn Point at Dawn • Monday May 15th 2017

Civil Dawn Over the Severn River

Empty Osprey Nest on the Severn River off Horn Point at Dawn in Annapolis Maryland May 15th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

Sunrise was scheduled to begin at 5:53 am on this Monday in Annapolis Maryland, so with that in mind I arrived at lets say 5:40 am in order to photograph a pair of local Ospreys occupying their nest set against a backdrop of the sun rising over the Severn River and beyond to the Chesapeake Bay.

Needless to say that upon my arrival I found this Osprey nest, well devoid of any Ospreys. While I have observed on numerous occasions since late March a pair of transient raptors perched high in a nearby tree, I have seen but one of them occupy this nesting platform, if only for a brief period so far this spring.

In any event with the nest empty I began instead to follow the transitional stages of dawn until the blue grey hue of the water’s surface and that of the earthen colored sky filled my camera’s viewfinder. With the time then approaching 5:45 am I pressed the shutter release once so as to capture this singular moment of solitude off Horn Point.

I remain hopeful that I will eventually be able to take a photograph of the Ospreys inhabiting this particular nest, yet it seems that if I’m not waiting for the right light then I’m waiting for the Ospreys.

Have a great week,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Circa 1908 Foursquare Style House on a Picturesque Spring Day • Sunday May 14th 2017

An Afternoon Blue Sky in Murray Hill

Circa 1908 Foursquare Style House on a Picturesque Spring Day in Annapolis Maryland May 14th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

The Murray Hill neighborhood is always a great place in which to enjoy a leisurely walk among mature tree lined streets, while at the same time taking in the numerous examples of late 19th and early 20th century Annapolis Maryland residential architecture.

My photograph today features a circa 1908 American Foursquare style house with a traditional hip style roof, as well as a wrap around porch that allows plenty of space for one to sit and enjoy a gorgeous spring afternoon

Have a pleasant afternoon,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • C1875 Victorian Influenced Townhouse with a Faux Mansard • Saturday May 13th 2017

A Plethora of Weathered Wooden Shakes

C1875 Victorian Influenced Townhouse with a Faux Mansard in Annapolis Maryland May 13th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

While I am an admirer of period townhouses sided with wooden shakes I would have much preferred to have photographed this circa 1875 one against a sunnier backdrop. Alas though the weather in Annapolis so far today has chosen not to be very cooperative in that respect.

In any event I stopped for a few minutes in front of it during my daily walk so as to take in the weathered wooden shake siding on its Victorian influenced 19th century facade, as well as those adorning its faux Mansard roof.

As an aside I could not help but also take note of the similar period – c1880, although Federal style front door on the adjacent house. The inclusion of the neighboring door seemed to have made things, as a Facebook friend of mine commented of late, just a “little different” in the composition of today’s photograph.

Rest assured that the sun will be returning tomorrow for an extended stay,

Glenn

Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • Northeast Perspective From the State House Early in the Morning After the Rains • Friday May 12th 2017

Lampposts Stretch into the Distance

Northeast Perspective From the State House Early in the Morning After the Rains Annapolis Maryland May 12th 2017

Click on Photograph to Enlarge

Confident that there is only one more day of rain to contend with before the sunshine begins an extended stay in Annapolis on Sunday I optimistically stepped out this morning in search of another subject, building or setting to photograph.

After having walked back and forth along West Street, as well as its adjoining streets, I began to make my way in the direction of St. John’s College, however in the process of doing so I opted for a detour around the Maryland State House. Besides I was ready for a break so as to enjoy a few sips of my recently replenished cup of coffee, that also included taking in the views from one of the highest vantage points in the City, at least from ground level.

As it turned out my elevated perspective of the northeast area of the City was quite peaceful while my eyes seemed to follow the lampposts off into the distance along the still damp brick walkway.

Have a good weekend,

Glenn
