In The Battle For Most Picturesque Photo Location Who You Got Between The Burnham House In Essex and Motif No 1 and The Paint Factory

In The Battle For More Picturesque Photo Location Who You Got Between The Burnham House In Essex and Motif No 1 in Rockport and The Paint Factory in Gloucester.
At One Time I might have said the Paint Factory but it’s such a mess now you’d have to put it out of the running. The Burnham House In Essex has the Natural surroundings thing going for it. Rockport’s Motif No 1 is nice in it’s own right and probably has the most world wide cache.
Here’s a shot of Motif No 1 from Matthew Green-

Hours and Directions to Wolf Hollow. A short drive off Cape Ann. Take your camera and send Rubber Duck a photo of your favorite wolf and I’ll post it here at GMG. Way more fun then a dumb football game.
As frightful as snow may be, especially before the Thanksgiving travels, we were spared yesterday from adding snow to the storm troubles. It was just enough, though, to make some snow scenes appear.
Safe travels to all and enjoy Thanksgiving
A tough day on Saturday for the Hornets as they fell in semi-final action to Northeast Metropolitan 38-12. Behind 14-6 at the half, the defense played long and hard in the second half and held for several exciting stops but the offensive team could only find the end zone one more time. A good season for the Hornets comes to an end, but memories of how far they got in the tournament should be an inspiration at the start of next season!

About 3:45 on Friday, a front rolled through the area providing menacing clouds, incredible spots of sunlight and snow showers in the sky that melted before they hit the ground. Just incredible! Glad to live on Cape Ann and be able to see capture a few scenes like these. Click the images for larger view
So many storefront windows and so many messages! Here are a few designed for the season, a celebration and pure fantasy.
Somehow, lost in the beauty of Essex’s Conomo Point with views of open water, far away dunes and the Essex River, the boathouses and barns can slip into the background.
The view over Winthrop Field towards the farm in Manchester has been taken many times, but does not get old, at least not for me. In Essex I sat waiting in the Marsh across from Farnham’s for hours to catch the Egret in flight.. Well, actually I picked up Chowda and walked across the street and there he was, ready to take off! Sometimes you just get lucky! Click on images for larger view.
We visited the ‘FLIGHT’ Exhibit at Cox Reservation in Essex Tuesday and had a lot of fun! The exhibit was designed by Haverhill artist Dale Rogers and will be on display until the end of September. The installation is playful & interactive, and stirs the mind with its contrasting media and its placement in the setting. The giant steel birds should seem out of place in the setting, but the scope and layout of the installation make it as if it always belonged there. Make the effort to stop on your way through Essex because it is definitely worth a visit!

Fun to see a floating house installation, or whatever it’s called, and the conference center is a beautiful place to see sculpture in the trees. What a terrific day on Cape Ann!
Cape Ann, home to the most oft-painted building in the US – celebrated in a festival on May 18 – deserves to be better known in Britain, says Paul Wade.
