Tuesday Photo Challenge

This weeks challenge offer by Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo, is simply titled, “Surface”.

I had so much trouble deciding which photo to use picking one, changing my mind. Pick another, then another.  Eventually I decided to post more than one. All are from the New Bedford, Ma harbor.  Twice New Bedford was the richest city in the country and once the richest in the world.  It is has the honor of being the number 1 fishing port in America for many years.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

This weeks challenge submitted by  Frank Jansen at Dutch goes the Photo suggested a theme titled “growth”.  My bike ride yesterday offered plenty of material for this weeks challenge. The grasses, the ducks, tides, fog, and houses all contribute to the growth of the tidal marsh over the centuries.  This is a protected wet land in the town of Fairhaven, MA, which will ensure that the quality of wildlife will remain and allow to grow and prosper.

Very often in the warmer months, there is a artist painting variations of this salt marsh near Cape Cod.  Never have I seen one in the winter taking advantage of a very different perspective of life on the marsh.
