Motif #1 on Bradley Wharf, Rockport Massachusetts
Motif #1, known as the most often Painted/Photographed Building in America, located in the great little town of Rockport MA. This was one of our stops on Friday with the NxNW group, Friday was a dreary day as well, especially along the coast. This is a touristy shot that everyone gets, but I figured with the clouds that day I could bring out a little dramatic feel to the shot. Given the fact that is was a dreary day there were not many tourists around either which made it nice. This is a very confined little harbor and during the peak season, I heard the place gets crazy crowded. We were lucky enough to find our first Lobster traps for Justin Balog in Rockport.
The shack was built in the 1840s and became a favorite subject of painters in the area and actually was used as a studio in the 1930s before being told to the town of Rockport. The shack was actually destroyed in the blizzard of 1978 but a replica was constructed the same year, the town continues to preserve its structure and original appearance.
Thanks for Stopping!
