Go first thing in the morning when you'll have this iconic building all to yourself. Your pictures will turn out amazing and you can park right by it. It's really just a weathered red fisherman's shack but it has long been a favorite of artists and photographers because it's downright charming. The little port and sea are breathtaking on a...

Couldn't take enough pictures of this place. It's beautiful and quiet, especially in the early morning hours. Not only did we find the Motiff a great building to shot, there were lot's of boats and plenty of seagulls and loons.

No dislikes. An interesting and famous building in Rockport that at one time (and maybe still is) used for storage for the lobstermens' traps.

You can't come to Rockport and not photograph the famous Motif #1. Walk over and read its history on the side of the building.

Rockport is a beautiful quiet little fishing village on the coast of Massachusetts. It is an absolute must see if you are in the neighborhood. Motif 1 creates such a picturesque harbor view that most visitors just sit down and watch it all. If you want some peace and quiet, visit Rockport. and Motif 1. Many movies were shot here......

A delightful stop and just gorgeous area to photograph. You can come for just a few minutes or stay over an hour if so inclined. We came back on several occasions as the boats and views change daily, along with the weather conditions. Afterwards, take your pick of photos to keep. The free parking on one side of the wharf...

Beautiful! The movie "The Proposal" with Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds had this in it, but in the movie, it was supposed to be Sitka, Alaska. Fun to watch movies & see places you've been! Picturesque area!

It is a small red barn type building with bouys on it. There were so many party yachts parked around it I couldn't get a pic of it without any drunkards handing around it. Nothing special but a landmark anyhow.
