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!

Images of Fall!

For twenty years of my life I paced the sidelines as an assistant football coach at Manchester/Essex Regional High School never really being able to take in the wonders of Fall. The Fall now feels colder..... not running around as much I suppose but the season feels longer to me now. When Hurricane Sandy approached I waited to cover the boat in fear that my cheap Home Depot tarp would rip to shreds. So a few days after I covered it we were hit with a powerful Nor'easter! The old tarp held up fine, the trick is to secure it TIGHT! The key is to wrap a line around the hull's length to keep it from flapping in the wind. Boat covered. A cheap tarp will last for about 4 seasons. The mighty Pee Wee's! Orange mohawk! Cheering! Defending Gloucester at Stage Fort Park. USCG buoy tender. Wind turbine dominates the skyline!

"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"!
