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 Big Dig Out!

Time to dig out from a wild ride. "Nemo" packed a punch here, compared to the Blizzard of "78" I'd say we did much better this time. Some homes and businesses in Gloucester and Rockport were hit hard but for the most part we did well. The day after many roads were still difficult to travel on but local crews did an outstanding job keeping up with the storm. I'm dug out! East Gloucester Elementary School My boat cover weathered the storm! My nephew Seth clears out his driveway. Good Harbor Beach footbridge didn't do so good! Another look. Lone surfer. Searching for a wave....a day late! Sailor Stan's! A Rocky Neck Jewelry shop. Schooner "Adventure" Snowed in door on Rocky Neck. East Main St. Buried Beacon Marine. Our Lady of Good Voyage Church Birdseye Commercial St. NO PARKING! Snow covered fishing gear. Fitz Henry Lane House Fitz busy sketching! Icicles! During the storm I had to carry Allie out to do her thing.....Now she likes it! Snow in my truck! Snow removal on the Boulevard. Boy could I use one of those! Fishermen's Memorial

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"!
