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!

No Theme...Just Out and About !

I try to think up a theme for every post but this time I was stumped. This is a collection of images from the past few days plus one image I took several years ago that I just discovered lurking in a wayward file. Since it was taken the same time of year, I figured to go ahead and use it here.

"Old Glory" and City Hall!

The Tony Gentile Band Stand!

Fishing vessel "Plan-B"!

From 2006.... "Changing Colors"!

Thacher Island and a jump ropper!

Jumping rope!

"Capt. Novello" heading back to the dock!

"Capt. Novello" dragging off Good Harbor Beach!

Harbor oiler "Captain Dave"!

"Padre Pio" ready to tie up!

Fuel up time!

"Western Venture"!

"Western Venture" off Bass Rocks!

Buswells Pond!

Chain embedded into a tree trunk!

Looking through the trees!

Still looking through the trees!

I really enjoy these everyday shots of Gloucester. It's been too long since I've visited.

The woman jump roping surely realizes the wonderful view she has.

Thank you Jay for the kind words for my mom. She's recovering well from the surgery and may even go home today. I'm off to the hospital shortly to find out.

Wow...that's amazing! Tell Mom I could use help in the Spring painting the bottom of my boat!

The light in those Western Venture shots is just beautiful.

"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"!
