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!

Magnolia Shore & Hammond Castle !


Magnolia a village of Gloucester has a surprise to those living in North America....a castle!
I lived on Cape Ann all my life and in all that time I set foot on the grounds of Hammond Castle only once,when I was maybe 9 years old! Though closed I was able to wander the grounds and snap a few shots.

Rough Day on the Water !



It was a wind whipped day along the coast today. With the heavy cloud cover and cracks allowing sunshine to poke through presented interesting photo's. I'm trying to avoid any more City Hall shots but the way the light was playing around it I couldn't resist.
