We looked it up as it's mentioned in all the tourist literature. It is quite cute from some angles but you need to get to a position where the "ordinary" items in the foreground and background don't dominate. Worth a look.

Photographers and artist come from all over the world to experience this little building. It is still used by the fishermen from the area. The view of the harbor is spectacular.

Rockport is a lovely seaside town ofto visit and explore. This old fishing shack (although rebuilt after a devastating Nor'Easter) is a must- see and must-have photo op. Find it before you leave.

Located on a pier that forms the Rockport harbor. This iconic red fishing shed makes for a great view or photograph. Access from Bear Skin Neck.

And yes, we have one painting and a few professional photographs and many of our own pictures of Motif Number 1 around the house, but up close and personal it just doesn't give the same feeling. Maybe because it's surrounded by other buildings and piles...More

I lived in the area for years and fell in love with it all. I was always taking pictures but never making one for myself until I planned a move to Florida. It was then I knew it had captured me. My first completed attempt,...More

Motif one is a picturesque old building that stands proudly marking Rockport Massachusetts harbor! The light hits it ( reflecting) just right making it a perfect portrait for artists!

This iconic building is the most photographed and painted subject matter in Rockport and possibly on Cape Ann and the whole north shore. But don't shy away from it as a cliche! Go ahead and take a picture. Everyone does. My favorite time to see...More
