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!

Fall Is In The Air!

Cruise ships and football is a sure sign of Fall here on Cape Ann. On Friday afternoon I went over to Manchester/Essex to watch the Hornets play the Austin Prep Cougars. The Cougars won 32-19 but the final score really didn't show how close the game truly was. In the meantime Two cruise ships came to Gloucester, the 300' coastal cruise ship "Caledonian Sky" and the massive 935' "MS Eurodam". Saturday afternoon downtown Gloucester was packed with tourists on foot, in trolleys and everywhere you looked. Austin Prep sidelines....water bottle foliage! "Caledonian Sky" Close up Bow to bow! Fishing vessel "Voyager" passes by. Check out the bikes on the top deck! Fishermen's Memorial Fishermen's Wife's Memorial "MS Eurodam" Stage Fort Park benches in the foreground. From the Gentile Bandstand at Stage Fort Park. "Lady Sea" exits the Blynman Canal. Passing by the old Birdseye plant. Passing The Fort. Birdseye plant in the foggy haze. A man and his dog...and his bike!

"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"!
