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!

Spring Is In The Air!

A warm spell has hit the coast, though this winter has been mild compared to years past, it's always welcome to get out and enjoy the weather. I threw together a few random shots of the past, then finished with Sunday's sunset.

Watching the kids!

I love those Swans! And there you go again feeding them the breakfast of champions ; )

That gull shot is amazing, Jay. Wow! Enjoy the warm temps this week! Should be good for working on the docks.

Thanks Sharon! Unfortunately My job on the docks was eliminated by NOAA this past September. I loved the job, the fishermen and dealers were awesome to work with. I guess NOAA wasn't that interested in gathering true landing numbers. Currently I'm working on another possibility in another field that mirrors somewhat the dock position.

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