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!

Gloucester to Harness the Wind!

With Varian's giant wind turbine in place it's now time to install two more at Gloucester Engineering. While one will support Gloucester Engineering's electric needs, the third will supply the electric needs for Gloucester's municipal buildings. According to Mayor Carolyn Kirk the city could save as much as $400,000 in energy costs per year! Friday morning city,state and Gloucester Engineering officials held a "Blade Signing Ceremony" where members of the public were given the opportunity to sign a turbine blade. Turbine tower footing. Massive blades await assembly. Inside the tower. Blade lifting instructions! City Councilor Sefatia Romeo Theken signs. City Councilor Melissa Cox signs as Senator Bruce Tarr smirks on! Retired Assistant Superintendent Brian Tarr signs. Student Cassandra McComiski signs. More signitures. Creative signings! Even I signed! Changing skyline. Wind turbine and church steeples!

"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"!
