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!

Gloucester Cruise Season !

It started October of 2004 when the cruise ship "Rotterdam" anchored in Gloucester Harbor for a trial run. It's Fall foilage season in New England and with that the cruise ship industry has targeted our port as one of their ports of call. With the completion of Cruiseport Gloucester last year ships of all sizes have made a stop. Today the "MS Fram" a ship that travels from pole to pole made a visit. Last December she lost power in Antartica and was damaged when she hit an iceberg! One of her lifeboats was crushed while the hull suffered minor damage. No one was hurt but as the incident was taking place the captain ordered an open bar for the passengers!

WOW Jay the MS FRAM is huge. It must have been something pulling up along side of it

"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"!
