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!

Sun and Snow!

Weather forecasters said we may be in for a dusting to 2" of snow. They were off a little bit as we had an all day light snow event. As I type about 4" is on the ground. This post covers the last five days from sunshine to snow and a side trip to nearby Essex. Schooner "Ardelle" at her Essex marsh winter home. Phil Powell's "Foxy Lady" Stern view. Bottom work. Net work as the giant wind turbines loom above. Varian's wind turbine which towers 565' above sea level in shadow. "Ugly Duck" Recently cited by the Coast Guard for using improper fishing gear "Princess Laura". NOAA's regional headquarters on the hill above. The fleet comes in. Jim Ford's "Lisa Ann II" The dude of Birdseye....can you see him? Flats piled high against the Annisquam Market. Ipswich Bay Wooden Buoy shack. Recently restored Lanes Cove shack. Stacked Lobster buoys. Snowy Boulevard. Fishermen's Memorial A prayer.

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"!
