Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

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. For that reason 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!

Blizzard of 2010 !

It wasn't the biggest snow fall nor did it do as much damage as past storms but it did leave a mark here along the coast. Over 5000 Gloucester customers lost power, luckily I wasn't one of them. But the storm did hit close to home. A large maple tree next to my boat split and missed it!

Glad my boat is on the other side!

Jay Albert said...

The Mrs thanks you Dave! Make sure Mrs D builds up her stength.....I think this storm is heading your way!

Thanks Kathleen!
I almost ommitted that one. I figured another "Man at the Wheel" image was a bit much but had second thoughts.

"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"!
