Word and Image

Cape Cod House

This is one of two iconic images I took in Cape Cod in October of the late 1970’s. The clouds were so foreboding. Lisa vacationed in the Caribbean and swam with with a barracuda. I traveled to visit one of my OR nurses in Boston. After leaving her family I traveled to Provincetown and found myself immersed in the local culture when I entered a men only restaurant for dinner. This house out on the seashore is gone now. It had already been abandoned when I took this shot on slide film. It’s been transformed into a public use building. Alas, the image can not be reproduced with digital imaging. When my father in law, Grandpa Bill, framed this photo he commented that the house was too centered. The proper cropping should be off to the side. I kept it this way but years later I wish to say that he was right. The framed photo in our house has faded somewhat.
