I have been wandering Gloucester Harbor at night amid the fishermen’s fading footprints, taking color photographs with light from the ships, docks and waterfront buildings. I am thrilled by the beauty of this place and exhilarated by the shadows, colors, textures, and shapes. But I am also apprehensive, and sad, wondering; how long before all this wood, all this metal, all the bits and pieces of these wharves “and the world they inhabit and sustain‚” completely disappears?
