"Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion that man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man." -- Edward Steichen
On Sunday, September 4, I was fortunate enough to sail out among the schooners as they participated in the Mayor's Race, part of the Gloucester Schooner Festival. The weather could not have been more perfect for sailing. The sun was shining, there was a light breeze, and the waves were minimal. It was a lot of fun, and a terrific day for photography.
Billowing sails seem to dwarf the small schooner in the background!
This gentleman seems to have found the perfect vantage point!
