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!

Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer !

I forgot to mention humid! With temps in the 90's for most of the week the beaches have been packed. Yard work is put off in this type of weather and finding a spot to cool off is the rule.

Good Harbor Beach Creek!

Salt Island in the distance!!

Crowds in the haze!

Lobster boat "Jeanne" heads in!

Fishing off the end of the Fish Pier!

Deep sea fishing boat "Lady Sea" rounds the breakwater!

Sailing pass the Paint Factory!

Rocky Neck Marine Railways!

Beat up skiff in Smiths Cove!

Net reel of F/V "Sea Farmer II"!

Lobster boat "Stanley Thomas" passes Ten Pound Island!

Looking for a meal!

Loaded skiff!

Skiff at rest!

You have some nice shots there Jay. The sun is amazing! Guess all that heat was good for something. Wonder what kind of weather it will be tomorrow on the water at Cape Ann?

The view of the Paint Factory from this angle shows what desperate shape it's really in.

I'll bet Steve would know what kind of bird that is!


"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"!
