Independence Day

There is no place in the United States that knows how to celebrate American holidays better than New England. Since I have family there, I always spend Thanksgiving there and sometimes the 4th of July as well. A few years ago I went with my family to the Sudbury Massachusetts Independence Day parade. Sure other towns also have great parades but do they have Minutemen? You can buy a print of this image on my commercial site by clicking here.

Motif #1

This is the harbor at Rockport Massachusetts. I took this photo early in my career on a frigid November day while my family waited in a restaurant on the pier where later I had some fantastic clam chowder. Years later I discovered this scene is commonly called Motif #1 because it is one of the most photographed and painted scenes in the world. Art teachers assign this to teach students about painting light, color and vistas. Who knew?

Provincetown MA 1983

We only visited P-Town once in 1983 when my wife was pregnant with our daughter. We ate at a bistro called Cafe Blasé where the waiter scolded my wife for having a beer which was probably one of the two that she had in nine months. He had the audacity to pat my wife’s pregnant belly while he scolded her. I held my temper but had joy in leaving no tip.

My wife needed to take a lot of naps back then since it was her 6th month of pregnancy and I went off to capture a few snapshots. Yesterday a Federal Judge applied the 14th Amendment and struck down Pennsylvania’s law prohibiting gay marriage. The judge did more than that though she supported the fact that in the USA you are ALLOWED to be different. It made me think of this picture.
