Like Breath on Glass, or Living in a Whistler Moment

gloucester-harbor-nocturne-copyright-kim-smithJames McNeill Whistler once said “Paint should not be applied thick. It should be like breath on the surface of a pane of glass.” My question is, which came first, the “soft paintings” of the later half of the 19th and early 20th century or soft focus photos? Knowing that Edward Steichen transitioned from painting to photography, its not hard to imagine that Whistler and Innes were also using photography as a tool.

September Dreamscapes

As the fog was dissipating in the setting sun, whichever direction the camera was pointed, we were treated to a breathtaking view.

Oliver Hazard Perry and Eastern Point Lighthouse

OLIVER HAZARD PERRY Eastern Point Lighthouse Gloucester MA copyright Kim SmithThese photos were taken as the sun was setting, from Stage Fort Park, on my way home from Manchester last night. How beautiful to catch a glimpse of this grand ship anchored in our harbor and adjacent to the Eastern Point Lighthouse. Folks enjoying dinner at the park were referring to it as the “pirate ship.” Here in Gloucester Harbor for one night only, Rhode Island’s tall ship the Oliver Hazard Perry will be returning in September.

Dominic Nesta Returning to Port

Dominic Nesta and his unmistakeable fishing boat ‘Tide Skipper’ coming home Friday night, with the Fort in the background. I think the pilot house on the small book gives it a very interesting, unique look, making it always easy to identify whenever seen in the Harbor.
