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!

Fast Moving Fire, Neighborhood Saved!

It was around 10:30pm when I could see an orange glow of a fire out my window across the harbor. Soon I turned on my scanner and the call for a structure fire at 9 Perkins Street came in. It was a fast moving fire in a three story multi-family home, from what I hear everyone evacuated safely and again the Gloucester Fire Department did an outstanding job preventing the fire from spreading in this tight neighborhood. More from the Gloucester Times A very tight neighborhood! Third floor engulfed. Gloucester Times photographer Desi Smith gets some shots. Firefighters working in the rear of the house. Ice coated firefighter! Perkins Street
