Mary Barker Gets Artistic

Hi Joey,

Most of the photos I have tended to post on GMG are scenic or shots depicting work on the docks and boats around Gloucester.  However, many of the photos I take are more abstract or more narrowly focused, reflecting the beauty I find in interesting shapes, textures and angles.   

The Gloucester Marine Railway is a great place for me to combine these interests with my new love for boats and things nautical.  I always find the docks particularly beautiful during a snow storm.   The guys at GMR think I’m totally crazy as I always show up in the worst weather. 

Fred Bodin, who has been amazingly generous with his support of my photographic efforts, has been encouraging me to post some of my more artistic photos.  So, here are some shots I took during or just after recent snow storms.  These are from my Snow Angles Album (as opposed to snow angels).

Trying to find beauty during the worst of weather helps me get through these long dreary winters a bit more easily.

Thanks so much,

Mary Barker
