Some things that make Gloucester such a unique place

You could go on and on, but it was getting a little crowded.

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.

  1. It was great to see you this morning.. I love this post

  2. Wow, this took some time. Great montage!

    • E.J. says:

      Thanks Fred. It was fun and did take some time, but there’s so much more that could be added, so I’ll probably do a couple more. I printed it out as a 12×16 print and it looks really cool.

  3. EJ – when you have a chance, swing down to the ice co and help me paint that cod fish on the side of our building ! I missed the chance to have Jeff Weaver do it, when we had scaffolding up 16 years ago…
    Thanks, Scott

    • E.J. says:

      Glad you like it Scott. But I think you’d have a better shot getting Jeff to do it than getting me to climb up on scaffolding on that little piece of dock over deep cold water in the dead of winter.

    Love your collection of Glosta sights! I think there is a tiny bit of room in the top left corner for a wind turbine. (Kidding) Truly, your pictures are just wonderful!
