Among the first images that I made in the early morning of May 26th, on the Portsmouth Village assignment, was the old Methodist Church. Probably the most prominent building in the historic district, it is well restored and maintained. One of the most salient features of the church is it’s list to the right, as a result of exposure to winds and storms. Looking under the building, one can see the old ship timbers that make up the floor framing. Interestingly, many old buildings on the Outer Banks were constructed from salvaged shipwrecks.
