Great point of view, neat details!

Very spare, yet interesting, too, Bits.

Nicely shot. Two seagulls and a dude in a canoe.

Thanks Marilyn, not1word and Cal - I feel like it's the Andrew Wyeth view of Fitz Hugh Lane's home on the Gloucester waterfront...Fitz Hugh's World. The inscription on the berkenstock sculptures might have better been 'Step into my home and become inspired.' The nice thing is, this is the view from the public sidewalk.

And LOL Guy, very observant on the seagulls - I sure never saw the 2nd one....But a definite miss on the canoe. But he sure drew and painted a lot of ships and sunsets...

The second seagull is just right of the painter. You should look at the pic full size to see it. So Guy looked at this picture full screen. Been showering while this pic was coming in, Guy? ;>)

How is this possible in the middle of Gloucester? Super shot, and again, so clear!

There are also three field mice just below the large rock. But you need the Super Vision to be able to see them.

Thanks Norrel - you must have opened it to full size, too! I still can barely see that other bird. But with the way the site's been clogged up lately ;) Guy probably cooked and ate dinner, washed up, went outside to capture a sunset, and THEN came in and had a shower while he waited for the photo to open. So Thank You Guy for your perseverance!

Well, there were three field mice there, not1word but poor them. They're blind, so couldn't enjoy the view. And they were running from some lady with a carving knife, too...

It does seem out of place, doesn't it, Nawitka - he'd owned this little hill right at the waterfront, so that nicely preserved it. It's also nice to be able to be selective about the viewpoint in a photo! The view from the top of the hill is a lot more developed, though still interesting: the coast guard station, the little aquarium, the Maritime Heritage Museum, and tour buses, and refrigerated trucks for shipping fish...I don't want to ruin the illusion here, though, lol. Maybe later int eh summer when the hill greens up a bit

This wasn't tooooo bad B-n-P, I clicked on Dianne's 'just the two of us' and watched Doctor Zhivago and half of Ben Hur while waiting for it to open.

LOL, Guy - the sad thing is we know you might very well not be joking there!
