AOL Community Photo Challenge-Hometown

My Hometown

This week's photo challenge is "Hometown".  Why not join in :).
Advanced Amateurs/Professionals Post Here

Amateurs Only post your entry here

Our hometown is a old mill town, the main street is only two blocks long, beautiful old buildings. You can find restoration of old buildings, Tressel View Park and trail was recently opened. Know for the best salmon fishing, Daniel Websters's birthplace.

My picture is our library and the building behind the library is an old opera house now the town hall and upstairs they have plays.

Hi, Betty, this is so picturesque!  The water, the snow the cool Building.  Boy, I think my approach was pretty much off the wall compared to everyone else but I sure had fun.  Maria  http://journals.aol.com/gotomaria/TheLittleThings/entries/2008/01/23/latte-heaven--biscotti---photo-challenge--hometown/2324

What a great post card...nay... magazine  or travel poster image.  Norman Rockwell would have been inspired.  This is more than beginner's luck, it's truly art.  Is there a third level in this Challenge?  Do these people >
http://www.merrimackchamber.org/  and  http://www.visitnh.gov/
know there is a great photographer amongst them?  Congrats, Betty
