Steeple Vista

new-england-steeples

I photographed this view of North Adams, Massachusetts from a small hill near town. the numerous steeples sticking high into the air caught my attention,so I sought out a vantage point to capture them. The hillsides have a little bit of color in them,but it was mostly disappointing this year. Located in the Berkshires,this town was first settled in 1745 during King Georges War.

Tyringhams Gingerbread House

santarella-home santarella-home2 santarella-home4 santarella-home3Tucked along a rural back road in Massachusetts is this rather unique set of buildings created by a man with a very artistic way of expressing himself. It is called Santarella and is privately owned,but sheer luck had us pull in to just look and at that moment,the caretaker came out and was telling some other tourists they could wander around the property and we could as well. It was so unique but time of day was wrong and it was hard to shoot inspiring angles. Despite only having ten minutes,I managed to get a few angles to share here. The roof had layer upon layer of shingles,which I found rather impressive.Google Santarella to learn more.
