... and more work. Shortly there will be a break -- captain needs to drive someone home and will be back in 1/2 hour...

I also have break from photographing Glutton... oh, what a pleasant surprise! My friend Paul is biking on the pier!

There is this incredible guy in Ptown: Juliusz Popko! He puts those flags up... (also Lobster Pots Christmas Tree on Lopes Square...) and there is always Polish flag in MacMillan Pier! Julek, dziekuje bardzo!

"Portuguese grandmothers" golden in sunrise... Photographs of Portuguese women are by artist photographer Norma Holt and are in the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum collection. The installation idea belongs to Ewa Nogiec, Polish artist living in Ptown since 1983 [she is the curator of iamprovincetown.com]. Without her, we would not have this incredible homage to women waiting for their man to came safely from fishing the sea. The wharf is privately owned by Cabral family and we all are very grateful for their generosity to host this art installation/exhibition.

The darker line on the horizon is the breakwater - the stone wall which protects our harbor in stormy weather.
