Martha’s Vineyard: The Swordfish Harpooner

Posted in Travel by leahyetter on August 11, 2010

In this small fishing village of Menemsha, which was our home-base, is a sculpture of a man spearing a swordfish. It represents a time when this was popular trade for the village. The sculpture was created by an artist named Jay Lagemann and is displayed on the dunes.

That’s my handsome fella on the far right. He was so patient with me and my constant quest for the perfect light.
