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!

It's Winter....Get Over It !

As I assemble this post the snow is coming down at a pretty good clip. I'm looking out the window and I can see the trees lit by a street light thrashing about in 40+mph winds. And over the police scanner the police are wondering why the DPW is not plowing yet! This gets me to remember the Blizzard of 1969 , a localized blizzard where Cape Ann was hammered with 41" of snow! While the rest of the region dealt with half the snowfall as we did, I'll never forget it's impact. With Cape Ann sticking out into the ocean we were hit with ocean effect snow that required the Army National Guard to bring in heavy equipment to clear the streets. We were without power for two weeks, no school for two weeks and through it all it was neighbor helping neighbor. We had snow drifts reaching the second floor and had to use the back door just to get out of the house. Forget about using your car yet the streets were alive with people walking, using skis, pulling sleds to haul the groceries home.

Bow Line is a beautiful composition.

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
