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!

Oh That Guilty Feeling !

The one thing I came away with during my Monday ride was other than one sailboat and two or three other pleasure craft,the harbor was alive with commercial vessels. Lots of lobstering going and I had a guilty feeling enjoying my day off while others worked hard to make a buck.

A Rare Monday Excursion !

After driving to Maine the day before for a family wedding,I decided to take a Monday off from work. With leftover swells from Hurricane Kyle I headed offshore to take in the scenery.
