Gloucester Views


I find it so interesting how in the above photo you can't see any of the town at all. Just a short change of location in the below photo and it all pops up!






Such a beautiful place. I hope you don't mind but I still have many more photo's to share in the future of my warm, July day in Gloucester.

Really enjoyed visiting you blog. The photography is just great. It all reminds me of our first trip to New England last fall as "leaf peepers!"

I know there is beautiful scenery in my backyard, but these make me jealous this morning. It makes me want to fly north and take pictures!

Sharon your lovely photo's make me wish I were heading to the island today. Very hot and humid here, but on the island you can always count on a southerly breeze and the smell of salt in the air.

Loved the steeple in the background and all of the town overlooking the hill along with the boat photos!

You have done a fine job in capturing the essence of Gloucester! I love visiting Cape Ann. So rich in maritime history and tragedy.

Cindy said...

Great pictures, Sharon. I love Gloucester, and had such a geat trip in April. Love the perspective pictures. Sometimes as you say it just takes a few steps or just lifting the camera.

I absolutely LOVE these pictures to see where my husband's family lived here in America. Thanks:) So beautiful!

My husband is an architect for our church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is a great corporation to work for!:)

Yes, Dad's lady friend visits him often. Tonight they were talking on his cell phone when we left. She si coming to see him at noon tomorrow.
This week he said, "When Donna (93 yrs old) came she couldn't wait to hug me and then gave me a BIG kiss!
She said, " That is our first kiss!" I had to correct her and help her remember it was our second!" I am glad they found this friendship.

Oh, and our newly weds are having baby in Feb! That will make 12! Number 11 is due the 10th of Sept. We keep multiplying. :)
Thanks for asking about dad. ~♥

That was pretty amazing with the top two photos, Sharon! I had to look at them several times. Love that second one.

Jay Albert said...

Again you did a wonderful job! A little note: The 1st pic,the red building on the right was used in the filming of "The Perfect Storm"! It played the "Crows Nest" bar. And the dock way to the right and out of the picture is where they filmed the unloading of the boats.

Jayne said...

You should truly create a "Postcards of New England" set Sharon! I am sure they would sell like hotcakes! Just beautiful!

Riet said...

Such beautiful pictures again. I get to know your country New England through your pictures. Thank you. That is wonderful. I would love to go there some time.
With me I am trying to show pictures of my home country The Netherlands ( Holland) because I can see people are interested in it.
