The Japanese defense forces couldn't stop Godzilla.....I captured the beast!
Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester, Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. For that reason artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years, they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

Trying to Beautify a Winter Mess!

This last few days it's been a weather mess. Snow, rain and wind has been slamming Cape Ann. Lots of power outages spread around, luckily so far my home only suffered a 15 second outage. Anyway here's a set of images I compiled this past week.

Calm before the storm!

A Great Day in New England!

I usually post images of the past week but got tied up watching a football game! And what a game it was! Our New England Patriots just proved to the world who is the greatest of all time. Greatest Superbowl game, greatest player, greatest coach, greatest team and greatest owner! The key was endurance, the Patriots wore out the Falcons!
 I'm still posting this weeks images with one altered.

Gloucester loves the Patriots!

From a Nor'easter to Nice Weather!

Now that we are in the middle of the winter, overall I'd say it's been mild. Only one big snowstorm which melted away in the mild temps. But we were hit with a rain soaked nor'easter in the beginning of the week followed by some great sunrises.

Please note: At no time was I near natures fury thanks to a zoom lens and post editing. The breaking seas must be respected and you never know when its reach may put you in danger from either the force of the water or flying debris.

Stacy Boulevard
 Flooded Good Harbor Beach!
 Breaking over Bass Rocks!
 Foaming sea!
 This was a difficult capture in driving rain.
 I could feel the ground shake!

 An angry sea!
 This splash over looks close but I was safely away from it.

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
