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!

Logistics on a Grand Scale!

Components for the largest wind turbines on the east coast arrived in Gloucester and to get a sense on how large these are going to be check out the 160'long blades! With a finished diameter of 328' mounted on a hub over 300' off the ground imagine a football field spinning from the 50 yard line a football field high! And below a comparison on how big these three turbines truly are: Barge with support tower components. Another view. Old Glory Crane at Varian with trailer counter weights attached! Spectators on the Fish Pier check out the huge blades. Lobster boat "Josephine & Samantha". Passing by huge blade. "Angela Rose" passes by. Moving the trailer into position with help from the crane. Lifting blade #2. Two cranes carefully swing the huge blade. Workers lower the blade. More spectators. >

"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"!
