Today I was drawn to the light. shapes, and color at Cynthia Curtis Pottery in Rockport, MA on Cape Ann.
It was a perfect cloudy day for roaming the Gloucester Marine Railways on Rocky Neck in Gloucester looking for patterns, textures, and shapes. Here is the oldest continuously operating shipyard in the USA, and to my eyes it is full of character and life.
Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Massachusetts is a year round mecca for tourists but traffic slows down considerably by mid November. It’s a bit like Provincetown, MA in minature and much more intimate and approachable.
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.”
On a perfect spring morning in the fishing village of Rockport on Cape Ann, Massachusetts, just a few lobster boats are moored in the calm harbor.
Sunday in Rockport, Massachusetts. Cape Ann is a year-round source of photographic subjects. I’m always on the lookout for interesting patterns and colors in the decaying maritime structures.
