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!

Abandoned !

With winds whipping at 40 mph+ I headed out for a ride around the cape looking for surf. What I ended up with was a few things abandoned! The first thing that caught my eye was the quarry walls in Rockport. The quarries dot Cape Ann, some as this one now used as the Town of Rockport water supply. The sun was starting to peek through the clouds and the colors were awesome. Later I headed over to Pigeon Cove to check out any wave action on the breakwater but with open access to the old Cape Ann Tool Company, I couldn't resist snooping around. Large forge hammers made engine blocks for many WWII Army tanks. Due to the sound of the hammers in operation, the locals dubbed it "The Boom Boom Factory"! The buildings has been sitting idle for 15-20 years while many proposals of it's use has been in dispute. While I was there the sounds of loose corrugated steel panels slamming in the wind gave the place a ghost like feel!

Very cool pics.Kinda makes you wonder what it looked like when it was new

"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"!
