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!

When You Visit The Lone Gull Coffeehouse....

Sometime back in the Spring my sister-in-law walked into the Lone Gull Coffehouse and asked about how local artists and photographers go about having their work displayed on their walls. The next thing I know she tells me my photos will be displayed there in October! Plenty of time to prepare, pick out what images to display,print,matte and frame. Guess what? I forgot!!! I had three days to get it done and with the help from Sharon of Double Exposure, my wife and sister-in-law the photos went up.
Below are the images my wife and I choose:

"Seine Boats at Rest" Taken during the St. Peter's Fiesta 2009.

"Picton Castle Behind Water Curtain" Taken during SailGloucester 2009. This was unplanned! I had no clue there would be a welcome like this. I was heading out in my boat just to relax and catch a few photos. As I rounded Rocky Neck I saw two large plumes of water over Ten Pound Island. My first thought was that the island sprung a leak! Then I saw the LNG support vessel "Gateway Endeavor" with water cannons at full power as the Tall Ship "Picton Castle" appeared behind the mist.

"Heart Cloud" Taken 2008. As I was motoring along in my boat I looked up over Cruiseport Gloucester and saw a cloud that looked like an apple. About 30-40 seconds later it morphed into this heart shape.

"Fishermen's Memorial" Taken in the winter of 2009. I have many favorites of the statue. But none with this many variations of color.

"Dancing Gull" Taken 2009. I was standing next to that piling as I was trying to get into position to shoot another subject. As I was raising the camera a gull caught my eye and I quickly turned and fired!

"Colorburst over Good Harbor Beach" Taken early Spring 2010. I was heading home after a brief rainstorm and decided to see if there was a rainbow near the beach. What I found was a colorburst "raining down"!

Nice to learn of a coffeehouse that displays art and photography. We should have more such cafes. It's a sad fact that today's coffeehouses as exemplified by Starbucks, Seattle's Best and other coffee chains serve merely as beverage stations and social hubs, not as beehives of cultural and intellectual activity.

"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"!
