Here are a few photos from one of my favorite places in the world, Rockport, Massachusetts. The red fishing shack in the center of these photos is Motif #1, one of the most photographed, painted, and drawn structures in the world. This is actually the second Motif #1, since the original was destroyed in the Blizzard of 1978, which I had the pleasure of experiencing while in college.

Even the overcast day couldn’t take away from the beauty and quaintness of Rockport.
