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!

Thanksgiving Rivals!

Since 1960 the Georgetown Royals and Manchester/Essex Regional Hornets have played their season final against one another. Up until the early 1990's the game was played the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day. I was an assistant coach for the Hornets from 1982 to 2002 and been involved in many epic battles in this rivalry. Both teams struggled this season but bragging rights for another year went to the Hornets after a hard fought 27-12 victory over the Royals. One special guest was invited to take part in the coin toss. A serviceman who just came home from Afghanistan, Kyle Johanson of Georgetown who surprised his brother Kane, a player for the Royals! Brothers reunite! Blocked extra point attempt! Breaking loose! Pass broken up! Dragging the opposition! Yes holding was called....I wonder why? Horse collar! Lunging forward. Passing a lateral skip pass trick play where the receiving back picks it up and fires to an open receiver down field for a touch down! It worked except for one thing....an official was tricked and blew his whistle killing the play dead! OUCH! Punt safely away. Getting run over! Extra point up and good! Sack! One thing I'm very aware of is to not try in any way take similar photos near professional photographers who are working their trade. However while taking this below I was talking to Gloucester Times exceptional photographer Desi Smith and we checked out our results. We were amazed we clicked at the same time, both photos looked very similar. Check it out! Punt! Game over!
