The challenge for anyone trying to take a picture of a schooner or any other masted vessel is getting up close for all the detail while keeping the mast and or bowsprit in the frame.  You can elect to take a picture of the entire boat or you can take portions, leaving out the bowsprit and/or mast.  For our purposes here I wanted to take you in  close so you could see just how detailed these ship models are.  If this picture was taken of the entire boat you wouldn’t get the up close details.

As always you can click on the picture and select “all sizes” to see the larger version of this picture.

Behind these doors lay a vast collection of beautiful ship models, collected and for sale by Michael Wall.  The first installment of our four part video series starts today at 8AM.

Also on tap for today is the first part of my interview with Gloucester’s Poet Laureate, John Ronan.

Sharon’s “Where Zat?”  location guessing game will be posted at her normal time of 12PM today, Monday.  There’s a lot to look forward to this week, check back, every hour on the hour for a new fresh slice of Gloucester.  We have Gloucester restaurant food pics, some new construction updates, derby pictures and interviews.   There’s just a ton.  Hope you all are enjoying this stuff as much as we’re enjoying bringing it to you.

Are you one of those people like me that have walked past the portholes at the American Ship Model Gallery at 20 Pleasant St and wondered what it was like in there?

Well wonder no more my friends because once again your good pal Joey gets inside to bring you behind the scenes and informs you what the heck is going on like no one else.

Look for the first of a four part video series of interviews with Michael Wall starting Monday.
