Pinkney Street, Annapolis, Maryland

Posted by on Sep 26, 2012 in Blog, Newsletter | 7 comments

As you may have noticed from the sidebar to this post, I am starting a monthly newsletter. In this newsletter I will not only have links to all the posts and photos from the preceding month (in case you missed any) but also other photo related news, some interesting links I have found and information about any changes to the web-site. Subscribers to this newsletter will also receive direct e-mails if I hear of any special promotions or new releases from OnOne Software, Craft & Vision or other companies that I follow. Many of these offers occur on days I am not scheduled to post (Mondays and Wednesdays) so through these e-mails I will be able to get the information to you more promptly.

I will never give your e-mail address to anyone. It will only ever be used for this newsletter and the ad-hoc notification e-mails that I may send.

Pinkney Street is a narrow residential street in Annapolis, Maryland.  It runs North West from the town’s dock at the bottom of Main Street to East Street  All of the houses on the street have raised front doors due to the flooding which can occur especially when hurricanes drive the waters up the Chesapeake Bay.

Pinkney Street is little over 100 yards long with maybe 25 houses on it.  However, the owner’s individuality, as displayed by the amazingly colorful decors, definitely make this a must see for anyone visiting Annapolis.  All three of these images were made in less than 10 minutes.

This third image was actually the first one I made.  It was the brass plaque which first caught my eye.  Throughout Annapolis there are blue historic markers on the buildings (see the second image above) but here was something different.  This was a simple residential building where nothing historic had ever happened and the owner was going to make sure everyone knew it.  The brass plaque reads ” On this site in 1897 nothing happened”!

  1. What is there about doors that attract photographers? Not sure, but the framing of these images and the outstanding colors probably contribute to the fascination. Well seen and captured Mark.

  4. Love these doorways. I’ve only been to Annapolis once a long time ago when my brother graduated from the Naval Academy. I definitely need to get back there and visit.

    I know this area well, just off of State Circle. It’s a beautiful seaside town. Nice work, man.
