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!

Sprouting Wind Turbines and Other Stuff!

Monster #2 is now poised for generating power! The City of Gloucester's wind turbine has reached to the sky soon to supply the electrical power needs for the city's buildings. Looming high over the Route 128 extension built on the property of Gloucester Engineering, another "sister" wind turbine that will supplement Gloucester Engineering's power needs will soon sprout up to the heavens! I also included some sunset and night time images. From Fuller School, Varian's wind turbine in the distance! Crane and turbine. The Gloucester city seal in place. At night. Open exposure captures the spin....perhaps 1 revolution for every 3 minutes. I estimated the wind at or below 5 mph. "Providenza" with Boston in the distance. Dog Bar Breakwater Orange sky The sun's last gasp! The Boulevard at night. City Hall You can see Saturn top right! Fishermen's Memorial

"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"!
