I decided to post here another image of the same place, as you can see an all-different environment during the cold winter.

Golden Evenings

 Old_Rockport
 
Rockport, Massachusetts is indeed a great place; the small town attracts a lot of tourism from spring to the fall. Being a typical fisherman port, it creates almost all the time great moments for photography. I enjoy the time here in many ways, if you want to relax you can, at the end of the fall there are not a lot of people. Summer is extremely busy but not stressful, the place has a lot of restaurants, bars, art galleries, gifts, and a variety of other stores. The rugged coastline is a photographer’s paradise in any season. Here is the sunset on a small cove, the sun reflected on the window in the house at the moment of the shot.

Refresh yourself...

B-24 Liberator

Liberator 

It is not everyday that you point your camera to the sky and get a B-24 Liberator on the viewfinder! I was not in an air show! The Liberators started their missions as bombers in early 1942. The sign says, "Come home soon!", probably this one was lost for sometime in the Bermuda triangle, I took the picture in 2007. Nevertheless, we are not so far from the past as we think.

Cape Neddick

Nubble












Well, what I can say, I needed to bring in here the "Nubble" light in full view including the sea. It was an interesting evening, the photographer that you see in the picture, on the left, in the rocks, had a tripod and was trying to get his best shot. I was probably a couple of hundreds of feet behind him and I also needed to make the shot. So, taking him out of the frame was not an option, since I would ruin the picture, my shot was done handheld.

My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.

The trick was making the shot with a 18-55mm Canon lenses in macro mode wihtout disturbing the butterfly.

The Fog

In a winter morning of 2002 I was driving trough the small town of Hopedale, Massachusetts. I was passing by the Hopedale Pond when I noticed the morning fog during sunrise. The photo was taken with a Canon camera and slide film Kodak 100.

Navegar é Preciso...

Navegar é Preciso

Navegadores antigos tinham uma frase gloriosa:
"Navegar é preciso; viver não é preciso".

Quero para mim o espírito [d]esta frase,
transformada a forma para a casar como eu sou:


Viver não é necessário; o que é necessário é criar.
Não conto gozar a minha vida; nem em gozá-la penso.
Só quero torná-la grande,
ainda que para isso tenha de ser o meu corpo
e a (minha alma) a lenha desse fogo.

Só quero torná-la de toda a humanidade;
ainda que para isso tenha de a perder como minha.
Cada vez mais assim penso.


Cada vez mais ponho da essência anímica do meu sangue
o propósito impessoal de engrandecer a pátria e contribuir
para a evolução da humanidade.

É a forma que em mim tomou o misticismo da nossa Raça.


Fernando Pessoa

The "Nubble" Lighthouse

IMG_0147_1

By following a cart-track for a quarter of an hour one comes to the canal, a stone's throw across, dividing the cape from the Nubble Rock. On the top of this bare crag the lighthouse-keeper's dwelling and fog signal stand out bold and sharp against the blue sky. At the east, a clump of blanched ledges stretches off... This prospect comprises everything between Cape Ann and Cape Elizabeth in clear weather, and is every way admirable.

-- Samuel Adams Drake, The Pine Tree Coast, 1891. --
