Artist's Description

My new “home”! I am having a log home built in this beautiful town!!!! A log home has always been my lifelong dream and New Hampshire is “home” to me, always has been and always will be! I find the peace and serenity I need in this little town!

The first building is a Congregational Church, the middle was a school house but is now the Police Station and the one on the far right is the Town Hall.

Nikon D300, Photomatix and finished in Picnik (1 raw image), 200 ISO, handheld, 18-200 Sigma Lens, f/10, 1/400 seconds.

(A human life, I think, should be well rooted in some spot of native land, where it may get the love of tender kinship for the face of earth, for the labours men go forth to, for the sounds and accents that haunt it, for whatever will give that early home a familiar unmistakeable difference amidst the future widening of knowledge: a spot where the definiteness of early memories may be inwrought with affection, and kindly acquaintance with all neighbours, even to the dogs and donkeys, may spread not by sentimental effort and reflection, but as a sweet habbit of the blood. At five years old, mortals are not prepared to be citizens of the world, to be stimulated by abstract nouns, to soar above preference into impartiality; and that prejudice in favour of milk with which we blindly begin, is a type of the way body and soul must get nourished at least for a time. The best introduction to astronomy is to think of the nightly heavens as a little lot of stars belonging to one’s own homestead.~GEORGE ELIOT)
