About Marty Luster

I'm Marty Luster, a retired attorney and politician. In 2010 my wife, mother-in-law, dog and I relocated from Central NY to Gloucester. I hope my photographs and poetry(?) reflect my love for this place and her people. My picture-poem posts can be seen at http://matchedpairs.wordpress.com and selected black and white images can be found at http://slicesoflifeimages.wordpress.com

      I see only two, and a cell/data tower in the background. Sarah, you’re not the only one in your feelings about the windmills.

      You are not alone. The ugly factor wouldn’t be so hard to take if they actually deliver on the energy front, but they fail there too. Expensive to maintain and unreliable — and to add insult to injury they have just a 20 to 25 year lifespan so the taxpayers (after paying to have them installed and subsidizing their energy production) will no doubt have to pay to have them taken down.

    Excellent shot, Marty!

    They look terrible and are a short sighted solution, they dominate the landscape from a million perspectives. They remind me of War of the Worlds every time I see them. I’m glad I live close to Manchester by the Sea. They will never allow those things to breed around here.

      Thank you Bill for saying that yup.. I completelyyyy agree 100%!!! Well said!!!!! I am SO relieved they are not in my gorgeous Annisquam River view because they are in some others around here ruining their Annisquam River views. I’d be SO UPSET!!! lol
