Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester,Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. Artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years,they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

Fog and Sunset, Nature Puts on a Show!

On Wednesday heavy rains fell only to let up late afternoon. Fog started to settle in so I figured it might be a good time to get some fog shots. I headed over to Stacy Boulevard and began to shoot. After a few shots of the Fishermen's Memorial I got back into my truck to head towards Stage Fort Park. As I was crossing the Blynman Bridge something caught my eye. For a brief moment I saw what looked like a house on fire! I turned around only to discover it was the sun reflecting from the windows of a house which sits along the canal. After parking I walked over the bridge then saw the sun breaking through the fog. It was an awesome sight, something unexpected a combination of fog and sun creating a painting like scene that was constantly changing.

After that show I headed over to Good Harbor Beach where at first only encountered the fog. But within about 10 minutes the sun began its pastel talents. 

Finally in the fading light I headed over to Niles Beach for the last gasp in natures sky show.

Summer Time!

Each day can and does bring a different face to Good Harbor Beach. It all depends on the weather and time of day. I also included some images from this years St. Peter's Fiesta.

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
