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!

Championship Day at the Greasy Pole & Seine Boats !

For Sunday's festivities I headed down to the beach. High tide and a big crowd resulted in wet feet and bumping into people I hadn't seen in years. With many more photos to go here's today's fun!
































Greasy Pole ...Saturday !

What a day,the harbor was packed with boats as the crowds filled the beach. I headed out around 3:15 and couldn't find a place to anchor ! Myself along with talented photographer Mark Teiwes "rafted up" to a string of boats just outside the pole. We had to jump from boat to boat to get a better view and I'm telling you my knees and back is killing me! My biggest regret is that I was moving to get a better view when the flag was taken. I got the shot but it was too blury. Anyway I took so many photos I'll post the rest along with a controversy later on.
