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!

The Changing Landscape!

Massive,huge,imposing,colossal,gigantic,enormous and probably a dozen more synonyms could describe this mega sized wind turbine. Looming about 565'above sea level over Cape Ann, all the major components have been assembled and is waiting for it's December 1st start up. Located at Varian Semiconductor Associates the 2.5 Mega-Watt turbine itself is 492' tall from the base to the tip of the rotor, the rotor has a diameter of 328'! Imagine a football field whirling above you! Just down the street at Gloucester Engineering two more wind turbines rated at 2 Mega-Watts each will rise soon providing 90%-100% of the power needs for the City of Gloucester's municipal buildings. From the Fish Pier you can see the generator awaits the rotor. From East Main Street. From Thacher Road. From Good Harbor Beach. Turbine dwarfs Old Nugent Farm ! Again from the Fish Pier. From the Route 128 extension. Backside Joe Fitzgerald looks up. Moving back I still can't get it all in the frame! I had to step back into the woods to get this! Close-up! At night using a long exposure, the stars are easy to see!

"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"!
