Cape Ann Tool Company

Rockport's abandoned Cape Ann Tool Company building

History stands tall

Historic Intrigue

The Cape Ann Tool Company overlooks Pigeon Cove Harbor in Rockport, Massachusetts. Long abandoned and decaying since 1987, this highly controversial structure is seen as an eyesore by some, and as an object of fascination by others. As both a Rockport resident and a photographer, I can appreciate each side of the argument. On this day, my photographer’s eye simply saw this site as an abandoned treasure waiting to be captured by my lens.

Beauty in the Details

Some people might see nothing more than a building in decay. What my creative eye sees, however, is color and texture playing with light and shadow. Beauty can always be found in the details — and nothing showcases that better than an intriguing HDR image like the one I created here.
