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!

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!
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.
