“P” Town

Commercial Street Once you've been to Provincetown, MA, that wild and crazy town on the very tip of Cape Cod, you are allowed to call it "P" Town. You know, its chic when you abbreviate things that are sooo blase. Commercial Street is the main drag; it's less than a mile long, but everything happens … Continue reading “P” Town

4-Legged Romeo

Provincetown, MA is noted for its open, no-questions-asked, and anything-goes attitude. It reminded me of Key West ... but inhabited/visited only a few months a year.

Sesuit Harbor Cafe

There is a hole-in-the-wall cafe on Cape Cod called the Sesuit Harbor Cafe.  From the outside it looks like a storage shed for the Sesuit Harbor Master, where he might keep his lobster buoys and a few traps, spare boat parts, gas cans, etc.  It sits right on the water, in the midst of hundreds of … Continue reading Sesuit Harbor Cafe

Bass River Bridge

This image is a stylized photo of the bridge that crosses the Bass River in Cape Cod, MA.  I stylized the image by emphasizing the blues in the water and sky and brought out the rich color in the bridge's pilings. The Bass River flows south into the Atlantic Ocean about a mile to the … Continue reading Bass River Bridge
