Rockport…Reliving the Moment
The charming New England seacoast village of Rockport…
Generations of artists have been drawn to Rockport, in particular for its uncommonly magical light that has inspired artists since Winslow Homer.
Rockport is home to Motif No. 1, the most-painted and photographed building in the world.
Pristine beaches, historic lighthouses and landmarks, museums, ocean attractions including deep sea fishing, kayaking, sailing, and more.
The Bean & Leaf Cafe…Favorite coffee shop ever! The desserts are to DIE for and has an outstanding ocean view.
The Ice Cream Store…so quaint!! This is where they shot the movie, in 1998 “The Love Letter” starring, Kate Capshaw, Ellen DeGeneres & Tom Selleck.
Talking about movies…we were informed by the locals of several other movies that have been filmed in this adorable city. The reason I designed the triptych with this title…
- 1990 – Mermaids…starring Cher, Bob Hoskins & Winona Ryder
- 1993 – The Good Son…starring Macaulay Culkin & Elijah Wood
- 2003 – Stuck on You…starring Matt Damon & Greg Kinear
- 2009 – The Proposal…starring Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds
It has been a few years since we made this journey to our favorite small town in America…but I realized I never showed this image that I created for our home.
Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:
So what’s the significance of vibrant colors?
Vibrant colors make your subject seem more life-like, and they enhance the sense of joy in your work. Whether you’re photographing beautiful landscapes or portraits, vibrant colors make your images really “pop” and standout to anyone looking at them!
Vibrant colors can really do a lot to enhance an image and is especially popular in landscape photography. So, the next time you’re setting up the perfect shot with your digital camera and you think the image would look even better with more saturated colors, try it out! It all comes down to personal preference, but vibrant colors can add “wow” to your photography!
Where is your favorite small town? I would LOVE to hear…
