Back Shore, Gloucester Massachusetts. feet got a bit wet but it was worth it. Fuji X-T3 10-24.
The fall shadows on Cape Ann are really incredible.
The early morning light provides an interesting shadow as Rockport’s Moftif #1 is in the background. Leica M-P 240 w/21 mm SA 3.4
This window looks out over Rockport Harbor. It is at the very top of Motif #1 and is the office hangout of a good friend of mine. It’s an amazing treasure trove of interesting artifacts.
Sea smoke happens at least once a year here on Cape Ann when the ocean water is warm (mid 40’s) and the air is in the minus digits. This image was made last year or the year before I’m not sure. All I remember is it was the coldest I’ve been in a while at -9 degrees F.
A couple of years ago I helped a friend bring his 36′ Morgan back from Maine. As I waited on the dock for him to bring it in I was enthralled by the stillness of the early morning and the incredible reflections happening everwhere. Magical is the only word to describe it. Another morning in paradise.
In Gloucester, MA every year we have a schooner festival. It’s a unique experience and I am lucky enough to be able to climb on board one of them whenever I want. This year I chose to shoot only in B&W mode on my Leica with my father’s old Leica/Schneider 21mm Super Angulon from 1963. In color this lens has a heavy magenta vignette so I tend to use it only in B&W. A couple of years ago I had a CLA done on it and the optics are stunning.
I love this old GAR building in downtown Rockport. The paint is peeling off the bricks and there is always a flag hanging, just not in this photo. Leica M-P 240 w/ Leica 28 mm Elmarit V1.
This tree has always drawn me to it early in the morning spring and fall. The light is low and the shadows are wonderful. The building across the street is a wonderful in it’s design. The out of focus clouds and building really give an interesting feel to this image. Leica M-P 240 w/Leica 35mm Summicron.
