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!

Cold Snap Turns Deadly!

Five house fires in the past ten days has the Gloucester Fire Department busy. Thanks to their efforts they have contained all those fires from spreading in dense neighborhoods. However late Saturday night one resident was lost when fire consumed her Windsor Lane home. Reports indicate there was no functioning smoke detector in the home. Please check to make sure your smoke detectors function properly! And if you must use a space heater be sure no combustible material is near and DON'T leave them unattended! Ealier in the day a fire broke out at a Maplewood Avenue home. Heavy smoke could be seen from East Gloucester and by the time I got there firefighters had the fire knocked down and saved the rest of the house from further damage. Windsor Lane Fire(My camera froze in the bitter temps) Ducks and gulls! The moon over Good Harbor Beach. Dunes and clouds. "The House" Looking for treasure! "Three Amigos" tower over Old Nugent Farm. Wonson Cove Ice builds. Smith Cove A closer look. Washed up lobster buoy. Fishing boat off Brace Cove. Ice coated Bemo Ledge. Daytime moon!

"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"!
