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.

    Where are you from? What brought you here? Are you Published? Do you teach photography? What camera (s) do you use? Are you in any galleries? Welcome and good luck! You are off to a great start. And, by the way, you will never run out of subject matter on Cape Ann.

    That’s a gorgeous shot, EJ. The light is amazing. Just lovely!

    • E.J. says:

      Thanks Linda. As with so many beautiful spots on Cape Ann, you could shoot them a million times, and each shot would be different. I have taken hundreds of photos of Annisquam Light from different perspectives, at different times of year, day and weather, and it is always unique and special.

    Awesome shot, EJ…. the lighting is perfect, the composition spot on… and also one of my favorite (and oft painted) spots! I need to get down there one more time before the snow flies (and my hip gets replaced!)

    • E.J. says:

      Eileen, you’d better stockpile a boatload of good photos to work from while you recover. Best wishes on your surgery and for a speedy recovery, so you can be dancing on Rocky Neck next summer.

      • Eileen says:

        I’m stocking up on canvases and materials for the winter months of recuperation and looking forward to summer on Rocky Neck!

    I agree. Such a beautiful shot, EJ. I’ve already shared this on Facebook so others will see one of the many reasons we love living here on Cape Ann! Thank you for sharing!

  10. That scene is very dear to my heart…for I have walked there at low tide for well over half a century! The curve of the beach, the angle of the lighthouse, the light itself… you captured it all.
    “Anonymous” – she’s already a professional, whose eyes and camera is sharp, and who paints Cape Ann scenes just as well. Especially nice without the quite new, shiny, aluminum walkway with float which honestly mars the scene in the summer :+)
    Thanks, EJ! – Cynthia Kennedy Sam
