Can’t help but shoot whenever I am at Niles Pond.  Such a pretty spot.

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.

    Gorgeous photos. Are those birds on the pond?

    • E.J. says:

      Yes, it was a flock of seagulls sitting on the ice. Not sure why they do it because it has to be cold on their feet and there must be warmer places for them to hang out, but they always congregate there. Guess they just think it is a pretty place to be too.

    Beautiful in any season. The clear Winter blues are crisp and gorgeous.

    WoW excellent shots Post Cards …A person could just stay here all day for sure thank you we truly do have a lot to be grateful for each day! “Native American Prayer: “Oh, Great Spirit, Whose voice I hear in the winds, And whose breath gives life to all the world, Let me walk in beauty and let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock. So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame.”

    I lived in the mother Ann cottage last year for 7 months. I never tired of walking or driving past Niles Pond. I took many pictures of it and sent them to folks, who have never been to Gloucester.

    • E.J. says:

      Yes, didn’t I meet you one day when I walked out there last February to shoot the waves crashing over the rocks? I recall you weren’t totally in love with the harshness of winter at the end of Eastern Point.

  11. All the shots are awesome but that yellow plant on the left one is amazeballs.

    Pity the poor fool who come to Gloucester only when it is hot. -Mr T
