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!

Barquentine "Peacemaker"!

After the last post with night time shots of the barquentine "Peacemaker" I figured a trip to the tall ship during daylight would bring out the elegant woodwork(brightwork)that I only got a glimpse of the night before.
The ship was built in Brazil as the "Avany". Her first owner was Frank Walker,a Brazilian industrialist.In 2000 a group called "The Twelve Tribes" bought her and restored her as she is today.She has an overall length of 150' a beam of 33' and draws 14' of water. She displaces 380 tons and mast height above the waterline is 126'. She carries 10,000 square feet of sail! She is open for tours from now through out the Gloucester Schooner Festival.

"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"!
