With all the gulls,boats and weather related scenes I capture I have to admit I overlook those who make up the heart of the waterfront.....the people. Gloucester's working waterfront is made up with people with many different backgrounds. A snapshot of the United States all working on our slab of granite. This is a first of a series. Here I assembled images from May to mid August 2010.

It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
