Did You Know? (Homies Fish)

I had taken this shot because I liked the scene, and it wasn’t until I looked at it on my computer that I saw the homie diving for a fish.  I think of them more as scavengers, beggars and thieves and harvesting and dropping mussels and clams on rocks, docks and rooftops.  I don’t ever recall seeing one dive into the water like this.  They probably do it all the time, I just never caught one doing it before.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

    I live on Wheeler point and we have seagulls fishing for crabs behind our house all the time. The stake out on a rock and wait for the right moment to pounce. It’s quite amusing because they are clumsy at it and usually take many attempts before they catch one. Then they carry it to a neighbor’s dock and try to pull its legs off before it runs away!

  2. seen this happen, great that you caught the images…
