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!

Spectacular Welcome !

WOW !!!! That's the first thing to come to mind when I saw the welcome the tall ship "Picton Castle" received entering Gloucester Harbor! The LNG supply boat "Gateway Endeavour" supplied the WOW with her two powerful water guns. The schooner "Thomas E. Lannon" provided escort of this magnificent display. The funny thing is I had no clue she was coming in this morning. I rounded Rocky Neck and saw two huge jets of water towering behind Ten Pound Island. I pushed the throttle forward in my excitement to rush out there to get these shots.

Jay, these are FABULOUS shots! My favorites are probably the 2nd and 3rd one down with the schooner looking like a ghost behind the mist.

How I wish I had been there too. What a gorgeous day for the boats to come in. Finally the rain has stopped!

Thanks Sharon! It was a surprise to see such a welcome! I found out later that those water guns pump out 950 gallons of water per....second... each! And can saturate a 1/4 mile area! I wish I could have recorded the sounds. It sounded like standing at the base of a large waterfall.

"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"!
