Rockport, Cape Ann, Massachusetts

Rockport's Motif #1, the most photographed and painted subject in this small picturesque seaport town. This gallery currently has my latest shots from there but will soon contain older shots and will grow with more.

I may include some Halibut Point shots here, eventually.

Facade Stories

Another Concept Series of images that I have started, more recently are what I call 'Facade Stories'.

Images of the sides of buildings against which another structure used to be built such that what is left on the facade tells a story or what is now missing. Chimney Flues are visible or outlined. Indications of stairs and pockets for floor joist and the presence of bricked up windows or signs off windows and doors. And, of course the indication of rooflines, some of which can be seen in this sample image at left.

Lamps & Lanterns.

For a few years now I have taking photos for a series that is Lamps and Lanterns. Street lamps, Porch lights new and old; electric, gas and oil.

They are so ubiquitous but still come in so many styles a varieties and blend variously with their surroundings that it is endlessly fun to Photograph them!

No doubt I will continue to take such images.

My New SmugMug Gallery Site!

I now have a SmugMug Account with lots of galleries of images.

These now include a gallery of Dinosaurs by my Brother-in-Law, Jeff Wells. The Stegosaurus above is a sample from that gallery and his work.

I also have a small gallery of what I call Facade Stories. These are images of the sides of buildings that tell the story of a now missing structure that used to abut them.

Please take a look and enjoy. Feel free to comment on images and rate them!
