This week’s Friends & Neighbors photograph was sent in by Serge Angeric of Melrose.
He took the panoramic of the Parade of Sail on Sunday during the Schooner Festival by the Dog Bar jetty.
“As a former merchant marine seaman I have kept my enthusiasm about ships and in particular those under sails,” he said. “It is the reason that I come, almost every year, from Melrose to view this beautiful display.”
“By the way, the panoramic picture, is over 60 inches long when printed at its “normal” resolution of 300 dpi (and can be even larger without loss of any quality),” he said.
Dear Readers, Do you have recent photos from a family party or neighborhood reunion you'd like to share with the community? Do you have any other brief news items and photos you'd like to share with the community? Things you don't usually see covered or listed in the Gloucester Daily Times? Now you can get those items and photos in the Times, on the "Friends & Neighbors" page. It's usually scheduled to run on the final color page of the paper each Monday. There are just a few rules. The column is not for commercial or institutional use -- we want to keep it for individual readers' news items and photos of and about their "Friends & Neighbors," as the name implies. Also, we will often limit the number of photos used from any event. You're welcome to submit several photos from a party or event, but please be mindful we will likely choose and use only one or two due to space limitations. Just email any items you'd like to see in the column to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail the information or drop it off to "Friends & Neighbors," Gloucester Daily Times, 36 Whittemore St., Gloucester, MA 01930. Please include your name and phone number; we won't print the contact information, but want to be able to get back to you in case we have any questions. Ray Lamont, Editor, Gloucester Daily Times
