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!

Gloucester Triathlon and Other Sights!

With other stuff on my agenda today I managed to see the end of the first Gloucester Triathlon which shut down traffic downtown. But with almost 900 entered and great weather it's sure to be another annual event added the the city's growing events calendar. Gloucester is getting good at this,from the St. Peter's Fiesta,Block Parties,SailGloucester and the Schooner Festival plus many many more events, all public services deserve a pat on the back. We are becoming a world class event participant!
And hats off to the winners....Mens champ Ethan Brown of Lowell and womans champ Alicia Kaye of Canada!
