Like so many others in New England, I am tired of the wet and gloomy spring we have had thus far in 2016. The constant overcast has resulted in no sunrises or sunsets to speak of, which is what I love to do. However, tired of waiting for mother nature to cooperate, I took avantage of the overcast skies to do some black and white work.

Perhaps the choice to shoot these on an overcast die with black and white processing in mind is a reminder of the storied past that these old fish shacks have. Fun fact: in 1960 the town voted to preserve the fish house area as a public park and in 1965 it was named after Ruth G. Stimson, the town's leading conservationist at the time.
