No, not the seafood restaurant by the same name - a New England tradition, and one of my favorite subjects - problem is, how to get any kind of background / viewpoint? Most of the roofs here are too steep, and I don't climb anymore - the wife says she LIKES having me around.


OK, so it's a clock tower, too - sue me !

One of many New England traditions that we don't have here in the Mid-West so much. You need an arm that you can raise you camera up in the air on and get a higher perspective. (I happen to know an enginner who is working on an idea for one.) It also might help to shoot them with dark clouds behind (it is a weathervane after all) but then that might come back to your last statement. By the way, neat examples; thanks for sharing them.
