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!

A Preview of What's to Come!

They say a monster is coming! Predictions of as much as three feet of snow, blizzard conditions with winds approaching hurricane force! Don't forget to get your bread and milk!

Tablet Rock
 Stacy Boulevard
                                                                    Rose's Marine

Sea Smoke On the Water!

It was -2 degrees F when I left work Thursday morning so I headed down to the Boulevard on my way home. When the air temp is that cold you are sure to find sea smoke rising from the warmer water.

Looking Back on 2014!

A lousy cold has got a hold of me, wheezing ,coughing and all that goes with it. Not the best way to close out the year so I decided to reflect with a little snapshot of the year.

Santa Over Gloucester 2014!

It wasn't easy but luckily I spied Santa during a break in the rain. I then made my way around the harbor looking for a good vantage point. At first he was too high, above the overcast sky then he broke through the clouds as he zig zagged looking for homes where the kids were asleep.

 Santa checked out the Lobster Trap Christmas Tree!

"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"!
