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!

Championship Day at the Greasy Pole & Seine Boats !

For Sunday's festivities I headed down to the beach. High tide and a big crowd resulted in wet feet and bumping into people I hadn't seen in years. With many more photos to go here's today's fun!

I'm glad you got the Seine boat race covered yesterday, I didn't make it to the beach. I'm really happy for my buddy, Jimmy T.

I was looking for you! The beach was packed and with little room to move I got my feet wet! It was the 1st time I saw the events from the beach in 35 years! I was talking to Jimmy's wife Laurel,he's had a great rowing year! One of my ex-football players Glenn Harrington is a member of Jimmy's crew.It was good to see him.

Thanks Kathy! Yes another movie is being filmed on Cape Ann. "Grown Ups" with Rob Shnieder and Adam Sandler. They are staying in Gloucester and have been around town while Adam and his kids were at the Fiesta. Most of the filming is in Essex.

"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"!
