Remembering Frank Sutcliffe

I wanted to bring your attention to a very well known British Photographer by the name of Frank Sutcliffe.
.
Francis Meadow (Frank) Sutcliffe (6 October 1853 – 31 May 1941) was an English pioneering photographic artist whose work presented an enduring record of life in the seaside town of Whitby, England, and surrounding areas, in the late Victorian era and early 20th century.
His images totally enthralled me, and when I first saw his image titled “Morning” you will understand why I wanted to try to capture the essence of Boating and Shipping.

Here is his Biography on Wikipedia.. Click HERE
