H.H. Hay Building
Early morning on Congress Street
Portland Maine
In Portland Square, where Congress, Free, and High Street meet, there stands a three story wedge-shaped building known as the “upper” H. H. Hay Building. There is a “lower” H. H. Hay building at Free and Middle Streets.

This building was built in 1826 and at the time, it had two stories and was named after its architect, Charles Quincy Clapp. In 1922, a third story was added by John Calvin Stevens. In 1978, Greater Portland Landmarks purchased the building after it had fallen into disrepair. H. H. Hay and Sons was a drug firm in the city.

Avid photographer with a favorite style and vision on landscapes.
Like to think that learning is one of my greatest assets. Always in hope that I can apply that in my love of capturing a moment. Firmly believe in the heart of photography is what the snap is of. Why that image? Why that light? Why that angle? Why that time of day? Why that film or medium format. Why B&W, why not color? Why?
People I admire: Colonel Norman D. Vaughan (1905-2005)
