Barnstable County Commissioners Recognize Sept. 27th As Cape Cod Independence Day!

September 27, 1774…Barnstable County officials and citizens gathered and signed a declaration not to enforce the British “Intolerable Acts” and subsequently end British control over Cape Cod.  A reenactment/document signing and official recognition of this day by County Commissioners was held at the Olde  Colonial Courthouse, 3046 Main Street, Barnstable Village…the original document/scroll was destroyed during a fire in the early 1800’s…the new scroll will be passed on to all Cape Towns for official signatures…Cape Cod will be recognized as one of the important birthplaces of the American Revolution!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown.  As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis.  Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
