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. 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!

Lobster Trap Christmas Tree and Then Some!

The 2012 version of Gloucester's Lobster Trap Christmas Tree was officially lit on Saturday night. It didn't go without a hitch, only the top string of lights illuminated at the end of the count down! After one organizer climbed the tree to plug in the rest and after several count downs later did all the lights light. Decorated with hundreds of school children painted lobster buoys, the tree is a true Gloucester classic! And during the week I couldn't resist capturing the Fishermen's Memorial and the Fishermen's Wife's Statue in a pink/blue/orange sky. A Christmas Duck! Hundreds of lobster buoys! All lit up!

Wonderful photos, as usual, Jay. Those statues are so poignant...

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
