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!

Angry Side of Nature!

All these photos appear closer than they actually are. Using a zoom lens and editing allows me to stay at a safe distance yet capture the power of nature. When you think you are safe, nature can trick you!

Calm before the storm.

November Sights!

Football is in full swing and most of the tourists are gone which makes for a great month for me. Solitude takes over as the season shows many faces. Work in the boat yards brings interesting sights and that's where I headed, at least over to the Rocky Neck Marine Railways.

Another Week and Another Nor'easter!

It wasn't Groundhog Day but it felt like it. This storm also had snow to go along with heavy winds and periods of heavy rain. Luckily the snow didn't stick but only reminded us what's next!

"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"!
