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!

Bolger Boats !

Gloucester's own Phil Bolger who passed away in May was one of the most prolific boat designers ever! With close to 700 designs to his credit his designs ranged from the smallest 8' pram to the 18th century 115' "HMS Surprise". Many of his designs were geared to the "do it yourselve" boat builders using plywood and basic tools. Simple,tough and efficient went into his designs and a cult like following admired his gift. This past Saturday a memorial of his life was held at the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center and along with family and friends, so were many of his creations.

"HMS Surprise" which was used in the movie "Master and Commander"!

If it makes you feel any better I never heard of the guy until about 2 or 3 months before he died. By the sounds of it he was quite a guy

"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"!
