“# 1 Photo Op”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

In this art colony full of photo ops, Motif #1 is by far the predominant focal point. Great childhood memories here are all instantly relived with one glance at this rustic treasure.

“Actually, It's Motif #2...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

#1 was destroyed in a hurricane. So it was rebuilt to exact size & look. Said to be the most photographed, painted & sketched building in the world.... pretty impressive.

It was in my 'back yard' when I lived in Rockport, above Sandcastles Clothing store. Standing like a lighthouse, watching over the many boats moored there...mostly fishing vessels. A great pic in any weather. Catch it at night w/a full moon on mirrored waters. ;)
