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. That is the machine that sits outside at the entrance to the parking lot of the Marine Railways on Rocky Neck. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but it looks like an old shop press for bending sheet metal.

      You got it Bill, that is exactly what and where it is (although exactly what it is I am not sure either, but assume it is some sort of press).

  2. I took some shots of it just thew other day, so I recognized the little cog in the upper left corner of the photo and the the screw drive height adjuster. Nice Shot BTW – interesting composition.

      I was glad when they moved it from its prior location, tucked against the building and overgrown with weeds, to out in the open where you can see it from all angles. And it makes a very interesting and appropriate sign holder.
