QUERINCIA… is the Mexican term for the area of the bull-ring where the bull makes its stand and has become a term that evelopes the idea of “place”. Place where one feels secure. For now this is our Querincia…. This is a very early morning photo of Downtown Scituate, Massachusetts and harbor. Its appearance reminds me of how small our town is and with this comes the feeling of Norman Rockwell to our lives . The camera collected so much town-light that it gives the photograph a miniature-like appearance. Shutter speed was set to 3.5″ w/low aperture, you can tell by the clarity and also if you look in the water, far left, you will see a lobster boat moving out the harbor for a fisherman’s day (I would like to try that some day); a haze with these camera settings. No wind, no movement so the boats are crisp, to early for people (other than lobstermen) so no individual blur… Days like this, where the lighting is perfect and nature is accommodating a nice sunset, are what make it worth getting up early in the morning.
