Seaside Communities: Rockport, Texas

Photographing the USS LAFFEY Museum Ship during our last trip to Charleston re-kindled my interest in nautical subjects.  I have been going through my Lightroom library and organizing my nautical photographs into collections.  Here is the start of one collection - Seaside Communities.


Rockport Texas is a great place to wander around with a camera.  There is an active shrimp fishery with two harbors - Rockport and Fulton with nearly unrestricted access to the fleet.  You're able to explore the piers and watch the comings and goings of the boats, the unloading of the catch, and the beauty of the shrimp boat design.


In addition to the boats, the bait shacks all but beg to be photographed.  These colorful shacks seem to symbolize the Rockport area and are frequently seen in gift shops as postcards, calendars and prints.  Here are a few from our travels:
