Cape Cod Blues
Snapping pictures of things that are blue in Cape Cod is like shooting fish in a barrel.
It's as if the hue is the area's Official Color.
Even the oddest things are blue. Did you ever see this color of fire hydrant?
The ocean greatly influences the Cape Cod look, since the area is surrounded by water.
Down by the waterside is a great place to find blue hues.
Chippy, sandy boat bottom: Love it!
This shade makes me think about painting my own rush-seated kitchen chairs....
This traffic sign stopped me in my tracks. It's official, but it looks so...homemade.
Blue is THE most popular accent color for Cape Cod houses.
Down near the Chatham wharf and fish market, the grates in the street were all sporting an enigmatic blast of blue:
This lady moved very slowly about her garden, but she wasn't going to let that stop her from tending her flowers:
Now, here's a mailbox you don't see much in Los Angeles. BTW, did you know that horseshoe crabs have blue blood?
I wonder why these pilings were capped with blue? Does it help prevent rot?
Pallets stacked near the fish market:
This isn't a dish-washing glove. It's the kind used by folks who harvest lobster and crabs offshore.
There's a name for this type of little, flat-ended boat. I can't recall what, right now...
Love this arrangement.
To me, all blue shades go beautifully with each other, always.
A private piece of shoreline and some of the residents' boats:
The Cape Cod National Seashore is largely undeveloped. This little shed is one of the few things on an unbroken vista of water and marshland.
Cape Cod made a deep impression on me.
Goodbye for now, Cape Cod. Maybe I'll see you again next year!
