Cape Cod House Portraits

When you visit Cape Cod, there is no doubt that you are witnessing a unique style of architecture rooted in colonial times when simplicity and functionality where at their best. There are many characteristics of the Cape Cod architecture style that permeate still in today's modern versions including cedar shake shingles, steep pitched roofs, central chimneys, dormers and shutters.
Chatham is the perfect place the see both traditional 18th Century examples and well-designed modern interpretations. Located on the "elbow" of the Cape, it's also the perfect place to catch a wonderful view of Nantucket Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and the famous Chatham Light. Don't miss the classic Main Street with great shops and evening band concerts.

Here are a few of my Chatham house portraits:
