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 Past and Future!

Since the early 1860's the Tarr & Wonson Paint Factory has guarded the entrance of Gloucester's inner harbor at Rock Neck. Even earlier in 1859 the Rocky Neck Marine Railways has been repairing vessels ever since. Today the Paint Factory is going through a long rehab to become the world headquarters of Ocean Alliance. I stopped at both locations to see how different the Gloucester skyline has become with the addition of three "Glosta Monstas", Varian, Gloucester Engineering and The City of Gloucester wind turbines. Old sloop Gear! Achooners "Highlander Sea" and "Adventure" A view from the main boom. From Smith Cove. Turbine & masts! Looming over a sidewheeler! Over Cruiseport Gloucester! Above Portugee Hill! From Niles Beach! The Paint Factory between the buildings. Outer most building. Brickwork More brickwork A view from the Paint Factory. While at the Paint Factory I spot this dory with a sailing rig off Ten Pound Island. This would have been a common sight in the 1800's! From the Route 128 extension!

"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"!
