Whaling Capital of the World

The National Park Service writes, “In January 1841, a 21-year-old seaman named Herman Melville set sail aboard a whaling ship on one of the most important sea voyages in American literature. The book inspired by that voyage was the world-famous Moby Dick, and the place Melville sailed from on that cold winter day was New Bedford, Massachusetts.”

These views of New Bedford Harbor were taken at sunrise from my hotel window.

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United States--a wonderful area for nature, art and culture. Using a compact camera, I celebrate daily life found here in a variety of local landscapes throughout the changing seasons.
