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!

Fall is Rolling Along!

 Images of opportunity I would say about this post. No theme was planned, I just went with what I stumbled upon.

My wife and I got our booster shot. Can you tell it was at Cape Ann Pediatrics?

More Up and Down Weather!

A little of This and That!

 This post doesn't really have a theme just a few recent shots and a few left overs from the last few months.

Wild Weather & Hauling Out!

 It's that time of year when nor'easters hit and time to haul hull. We had two nor'easters this week which brought 80 mph gusts and rain. All of Rockport, Essex and Manchester-By-the Sea lost power and a good chunk of Gloucester did too. Luckily my house never lost power. I managed to get out for the brunt of the first nor'easter and get some shots. Then on Halloween I hauled the boat out for the season, a 68 degree day!

"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"!
