Sometime back in the Spring my sister-in-law walked into the Lone Gull Coffehouse and asked about how local artists and photographers go about having their work displayed on their walls. The next thing I know she tells me my photos will be displayed there in October! Plenty of time to prepare, pick out what images to display,print,matte and frame. Guess what? I forgot!!! I had three days to get it done and with the help from Sharon of Double Exposure, my wife and sister-in-law the photos went up.
Below are the images my wife and I choose:
"Seine Boats at Rest" Taken during the St. Peter's Fiesta 2009.
"Picton Castle Behind Water Curtain" Taken during SailGloucester 2009. This was unplanned! I had no clue there would be a welcome like this. I was heading out in my boat just to relax and catch a few photos. As I rounded Rocky Neck I saw two large plumes of water over Ten Pound Island. My first thought was that the island sprung a leak! Then I saw the LNG support vessel "Gateway Endeavor" with water cannons at full power as the Tall Ship "Picton Castle" appeared behind the mist.
"Heart Cloud" Taken 2008. As I was motoring along in my boat I looked up over Cruiseport Gloucester and saw a cloud that looked like an apple. About 30-40 seconds later it morphed into this heart shape.
"Fishermen's Memorial" Taken in the winter of 2009. I have many favorites of the statue. But none with this many variations of color.
"Dancing Gull" Taken 2009. I was standing next to that piling as I was trying to get into position to shoot another subject. As I was raising the camera a gull caught my eye and I quickly turned and fired!
"Colorburst over Good Harbor Beach" Taken early Spring 2010. I was heading home after a brief rainstorm and decided to see if there was a rainbow near the beach. What I found was a colorburst "raining down"!
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"!
