We’re Looking For More Members To The GMG Flickr Group


By now if you’ve been reading GMG for any amount of time and clicked on any of the pictures you know that I host the pictures you see on the blog on my Flickr page.

From the Flickr page I can transfer the pictures you see here to the blog and search for different photos by title or subject matter.

To see my Flickr page you can click here to see what I’m talking about.

I highly recommend Flickr as a place to host your pictures online for several reasons-

  • For one, if you upload your pictures and add titles and tags to them you can always find them.
  • You can do searches within your photostream and create sets and slide shows based on the name tags you enter for each picture when you upload them.
  • If you upload your favorite pictures to an online photo hosting service like Flickr it doesn’t matter if your computer shits the bed because the pictures will be hosted on the Flickr servers so you don’t have to worry about losing them all when your computer becomes obsolete or crashes.

The reason I bring all this up and the point of this post is that I created a Good Morning Gloucester Group on Flickr in which you can join if you have a free Flickr account.   When you upload your pictures to Flickr  you have the ability to send them to different Groups (Good Morning Gloucester Group being one of them).  So we have our own community group of GMG  pictures and if you add a Gloucester-centric picture to the GMG group I’ll likely add it to the Blog and give you credit.

It’s super easy to do with a click of a button once you join Flickr for free and upload a pic.

So open up a Flickr account, get to adding your pics and then join the Good Morning Gloucester Flickr Group

Here is a tutorial on how to upload to Flickr

The Big Fish from deb clarke

This is The Big Fish (a blue faced cichlid we named ‘fat boy’) that hangs in our long narrow hallway.  The painting is oil with mixed media on linen, painted in 1995.  We had a 35 gallon fish tank.  This Big Boy ate every other fish in the tank, including several crayfish, then grew to an amazing size.  sometimes i think to sell this, several people have ‘tried it out’ on their wall, for a few years it was displayed at The Bookstore on Main Street in Gloucester.  Now, I say hello to Fat Boy everytime i hang a coat, store a painting, or head to the downstairs laundry.

Kevin writes-

FISHERMEN – I see pride, determination and resignation in the photographs of these men. They are the "last of the independents" in Point Pleasant, NJ. As small commercial fishermen along the East Coast vanish, those that remain persevere and struggle to survive. A centuries old way of life that is rich with tradition and pride may soon be gone, victims of what may be the irreversible consolidation of the fleets. Their culture deserves respect and admiration. Those who work in this inherently dangerous trade are to be admired.
THE FUTURE? – A ghostly view of what may be the disappearing fishing fleets.
