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!

Playing With Light!

Here's a collection of images using natural and man made light.


Here I was standing in the middle of this image while the camera's shutter was open. I twirled an emergency LED flashlight in a dark room then added the brick texture.

Harbor Cove

The pictures of the sunset are pretty amazing. I especially liked the "Gazela" photo. A literal floating piece of history. What that boat has been through! Have you considered entering those photos into any contests. The pink sun, and the approaching storm are wonderful shots. Anyway some food or thought, good work behind the lens!
