Boy's "Olde Time Summertime Fun", Biking and Swimming

I noticed three boys taking a break from biking and cooling off, taking a dip. The young men noticed I was taking photos and one decided to flex his muscles for the camera.

Roadside Flowers

I spotted flowers blooming in a field on a back road.  The flowers were slightly spent but decide to take a photo.  I decided to photo paint using Corel Painters Essentials program would not show up the spent blooms. I think it worked!

Back Roads Discovery: South Weare, NH, Old Garages

Riding back roads last weekend I rediscovered old garages located in South Weare, NH. Last year, I took images of the garages during the winter and red garages among the snow piles really showed up....hard to photograph. 

I have mentioned before in my previous entries, if possible I will try to research my finds of old buildings, homes and abandon barns.  I really enjoy  researching and learning about photos taken, as much as photographing my images.

What you are looking at is a building that was part of the South Weare Garage, a former Ford dealership. The main building was the brick building on the corner. It eventually moved to Goffstown and changed hands and is now Unique Ford located near the police station across from the Hillsborough County Complex on Rt. 114 in Goffstown. South Weare garage was started by Maurice Grant in 1919 and his brother Leon eventually took over and Maurice went on to take ownership of State Motors in Manchester. The last I knew the Grant family is still involved in State Motors.

I was very fortunate, John Colburn associated with Weare Historical Society wrote back with the above information. Thank John!!!

Roadside Discovery: A Beautiful Rumney, NH Garden

Last weekend riding the back roads of New Hampshire I discovered a beautiful garden in Rumney.  The problem it was mid-day, I had a choice pass up a photos opt or takes a few photos and try to edit and save which I chose.

New Hampshire Covered Bridges: Smith Millennium Bridge, Plymouth, NH

One of my on going projects have been taking all of New Hampshire's covered bridges.  I have taken all and returned to retake if I am near one for different lighting, seasons.

Smith Millennium is one of New Hampshire's newer registered bridges.  I decided to give my photo a little age and character to the newer bridge.
