Here we are in my local town, Exeter, NH, standing on Front Street looking up at the old Town Hall. You can't miss it as you're driving through the center of town, it's an historic old building that really makes a statement.
The day I was there shooting they were working on the cupola. No one was up there at the moment because it was around lunch time so they must have been taking a break. Apparently the bandstand in the middle of town needed a little roof work too! After all, winter is coming and now is the time to get this stuff done.
Headed up Front Street towards Phillips Exeter Academy and the leaves are a changing! Seeing as how this was over a week ago I'm sure they're even more colorful now.
Now we're on the campus of PEA (Phillips Exeter Academy) looking down a long, lovely walkway. At the time the kids hadn't returned to school yet so it was fairly quiet except for all the workers trying to finish up last minute restorations. Did you know PEA is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country? Kids come here from all over the world.
The oldest dormitory on campus. I'm not sure if it's still used as a dormitory but it certainly is pretty!
Starting in the upper left hand corner and going clockwise:
- A favorite home with a view through the front door into the backyard
- Pink Dahlia in front of The Willow home store on Water Street
- A secret garden
- Yellow Dahlia's on a white picket fence on a back street
A sweet Sunflower to punctuate the end of a few moments to myself
I hope you will join Mary and many other for Mosaic Monday!
