New: “Outer Cape”

There’s a stretch of road the runs along the narrow Outer Cape region of Cape Cod… a sandy, windblown stretch of dunes and beach that connects the towns of Truro and Provincetown. It’s a pretty famous place for the row of small, identical beach cottages that sit just off Route 6A, steps from the ocean, and attract hundreds of photographers and artists, inspired by their uniformity and unchanged simplicity over the decades. But just across 6a, there’s another strip of land that runs alongside these cottages, but this does not contains the same allure, as the few buildings that are there are less idyllic, and more utilitarian…old garages, sheds, run-down shacks…all somewhat cluttered with cedars, seagrass and other creeping vegetation. I prefer this side of the road…and though you have to look a little harder to find inspiration, it’s there. “Outer Cape” 24 x 24
