These lifeguards are not at all appropriately dressed for a day at Minot Beach in January.

In Scituate, everyone votes in the high school gym. We went this morning at 7:15, just after polls opened, and there was a steady stream of voters making their way in and out of the building.

Today's storm isn't too bad, but it's kicking up some great surf. This picture was taken at Minot Beach.

This little shop is right next to the fishing pier, and there's a little something for everyone to be found within its walls.

The Welch Company Building has long been an anchor in Scituate Harbor. It's housed a post office, a country store, a mill and a breakfast place which turned into a Chinese food restaurant at night, among other businesses.
It's also been a point of controversy in recent times, as a developer proposed turning the historic building into luxury condominiums. When the housing market went bust the developer sold off the Welch Company building, and now it's being renovated and (hopefully) restored to its former glory.

This is my first entry in what will be a regular feature here on Scituate Daily Photo - it's Threshold Thursday!
Doorways, entryways, beginning points - they are all thresholds, and I will feature pictures which fit into this niche on Thursdays.
On Fridays, I'll follow up with a wider shot which reveals the big picture, as it were.

The Scituate Animal Shelter was established in 1992 and moved into its brand new home in June of 2009. This no-kill shelter has found forever homes for over 4,300 animals - including one very small kitten nicknamed Bitty who lives with my family now!

The tank is long gone and Lawson Tower has been designated a historical landmark. Its chimes were repaired and the tower is opened to the public for special occasions (like Heritage Days!).

- I was born and grew up in the next town over, but fell in love with Scituate early in my life. It was a dream come true when my family was finally able to move here in 2009. Having followed Quincy Daily Photo for some time, I decided Scituate deserved its own Daily Photo blog and I am beyond thrilled that others are enjoying this project!
- The Scituate Daily Photo Blog kicked off on December 31, 2009 and is part of the City Daily Photo community.
- I was inspired locally by Quincy Daily Photo.
- Sometimes I'm trying to get a really amazing photograph - but sometimes I'm content with a simple shot that captures a moment or a place in time.
- I started off doing "Threshold Thursday" and "Monochrome Monday" but quickly realized I wasn't enjoying those constraints - they were annoying me rather than challenging me. If I happen to have a photograph that fits the theme I'll post it, but for the time being I'm not making it a regular feature on this blog.
- I try to use photographs that were taken recently if not on the very day that they are posted. The one clear rule is that there is a new photograph every day.
- Yes, I'm happy to take suggestions/requests for photographs. I'm happy to answer questions and hear your comments, too. You can leave a comment here or on the Facebook fan page, or email me directly - alicrehan (AT) scituatedailyphoto (DOT) com.
- It's pronounced SIT-CHOO-IT. (Although old timers pronounce it SIT-CHOO-ATE). The town's name is derived from Satuit, which is the Indian name for a brook flowing into the harbor. The area was first settled in about 1627 and officially recognized and incorporated in 1636.
