Fernando Fills In The Winch Head
Thanks Jeff and Fernando!
A little work on Parsons Street… I really liked the idea of a fishing net painting but thought it would be fun to see a real net in place. Bear in mind this concept is definitely not OSHA approved…or in anyway encouraged!! The first shot shows current conditions, the second with the new fishing net in place, and then the third is just an extreme. Now I’ll have to find Bob and show him what I did to his street…
I love filming and photographing around Gloucester all year round, but especially at this time of year when I find the light to be sublime. The moisture in the air provides a gossamer veil that magnifies the supernal quality of light; even the most ordinary of daily activities captured finds added beauty.
This just in from Osha Rose & Sara Wester:

Hi Joey, I had to put the fishing rod down to capture this amazing sunrise this morning. Share if you want to. Paul Spinola
