I will always remember the first time I saw Orange Street. I loved the curve of the street from the hill with the rows of houses stair-stepping down. I was enchanted by the captain’s houses, built close together and close to the street. It was all new to me coming from Texas with its sprawling subdivisions. I recently spent some time exploring Orange, Fair and Pine streets and photographing the architecture of neighborhoods with houses over 200 years old. The modern world intrudes with cars and telephone poles lining the streets. I found a Smart Car parked by iron hitching posts. The architecture goes from fancy to funky the further from town you get. I watched people working on houses, working in houses and working on their vacations. I found many friendly people who were willing to stop and chat and a number of them graciously allowed me to take their photo.
