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!

Only In Gloucester!

As I type the rain is coming down in sheets. It's been so long we've had rain, clouds of dust was kicked up by my lawn mower as I cut the lawn the other day. This is a mix of images from this past week and older images I culled from my files.
Kids on the Greasy Pole!
Two on the breakwater.

More blossoms!

Heavy seas!

Big surf!

Dark Sky
Dark Clouds
Threatening skies!
"Roseway"
An "Old Salt" with the kid!
Our Lady
Fire in the sky!
The disappearing sun!
A Gloucester Sunset.

Those are some amazing sea and sky shots, Jay! Gloucester is such a wonderful canvas.

As much as we need the rain I just wish it weren't so cold. My daughter and husband are on vacation this week. Not so good.

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