As tonight’s six inch storm was winding down I walked the nearly empty Main Street of Wakefield looking for photographs. Imagine my surprise when a snow plow disguised as an alien spacecraft passed me by. A police office pulled over, rolled down his window, and showed off a great photo of he had just taken with his phone of a home decorated in a pretty Christmas display. He said that he would later remove the utility wires in Photoshop. No mention of the spacecraft. A few minutes later a fellow approached me to show off the photos he had just taken with his phone. He was dispatching them immediately to friends at home in Turkey. I also admired some images he had made a week earlier in Bermuda. A plow driver waved hello and suggested that I not stand in the middle of the street. Another terrific hour in the snow.
Today I was drawn to the light. shapes, and color at Cynthia Curtis Pottery in Rockport, MA on Cape Ann.
Before heading home from the Newburyport Art Association where I was picking up some exhibited prints, I detoured to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. If you absolutely must have one or both of these photographs exhibited on your wall, click in the image to order. You may also license them for commercial use.
The granite quarry at Halibut Point in Rockport, MA was operated from about 1840 to 1920. Now part of a State Park, its reflecting fresh waters blend with the hues of the Atlantic beyond the line of trees. Sailors shouted “Haul About” when they rounded this rocky point on Cape Ann, hence the name “Halibut Point.”
Even though the streetlights along the boulevard of Western Avenue in Gloucester, MA are excessively bright, their reflections in the calm harbor do have a magical quality.
From a shoot at the Burbank Y, Reading, Massachusetts today.
