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!

Almost Christmas!

Now officially winter, Christmas is on the door step. The last few days has been anything but Christmas weather but the weather gurus say we might have a white Christmas after all. From driving rain to mountainous seas the skies opened up to a beautiful late afternoon colorful sky. "The House" at Good Harbor beach. High tide at Pavilion Beach. The storm breaks, time for a beach stroll. Foamed over! Boiling sea! Rough seas! Salt Island blasted! Salt Island Wind turbine looms over footbridge. "Hard Merchandise" hauled out after sinking dockside. Stern view. "Phyllis A." and "Lisa Ann II" Schooners "Adventure" and "Highlander Sea" at rest. Turbine skyline! A "Glosta Monsta" in the background! Herring boats Christmas lights on the herring boats!

"Glosta Logic"

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

"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!

A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!

It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
