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!

Diver Down !

A little after 5:00pm I was heading to the breakwater to try to get some sunset photos. As I was heading there I learned that a 49 year old diver was down. He hadn't surfaced in over two and a half hours for what was suppose to be a one hour dive. He had about 4 hours of air in his tank. The vacinity of the dive was near the sunk tanker Chester A. Poling which went down in 1977. The wreck at 80' down is a popular dive site here on the North Shore. The Coast Guard is conducting a full scale search well into the night.

5/20/09 :
I just received word that the diver's body was found about 50 yards from the wreck site. The Gloucester Times is reporting the diver is Paul Blanchette of Dracut,Ma. He was known to be a skilled deep sea diver who was one of the first to explore the steamship Portland 460' down on Stellwagen Bank. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Paul Blanchette.

"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"!
