One evening recently, on a stroll through the town of Chatham on Cape Cod, this ice cream shop had such a lovely setting that we enjoyed, and went back the next day for a cone.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
