Bellows Walpole Inn Show

I’m excited to be showing nearly 30 of my New a England photographs this May at the historic Bellows Walpole Inn in Walpole New Hampshire.  The Inn has been beautifully restored and combines modern amenities with the feel of a traditional old New England inn.  The restaurant offers varied fare and a relaxed atmosphere.  The inn has a long history.  As described on the Inn’s web site:

“Construction of the Bellows Walpole Inn was started in 1752 as the original homestead of Col Benjamin Bellows.  Colonel Bellows was one of the founders of Walpole and a colorful, persuasive character in the early development of this artistic and beautiful region.  Now renamed to recognize that history, this 14,000 square foot mansion has been extensively remodeled and updated with the exquisite decor and amenities suitable to a boutique, luxury hotel and event center.”


Bobby at the Bar

Susan and I have known the Inn’s manager, Bobby Hall, for years and I was excited when he welcomed my photographs in the restaurant and pub for the month of May.  It is a great opportunity to show many of my images and a happy excuse to print several new works.  

Key West Sunset

These include recent images ranging from fiery autumn color along the road to Roads End Farm in Chesterfield NH, all the way south to Key West and a glorious sunset seen through the rigging of the schooner Appledore.  It is always exciting to find visual treasures lurking in my image archives and for this show I discovered a forgotten image of the restless waters of Keene’s Miniwawa Brook cascading through winter ice.

There are many more than I can show here of my favorite glimpses of New England light.  You can check them out in my show gallery, or far better, browse the work while enjoying a meal or just a drink at the Bellows Walpole Inn.

Let me know what you think.  Maybe I’ll see you there for diner.
