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!

A Real Lobster Trap Christmas Tree and Then Some !

Ever since Gloucester constructed a Christmas tree made out of lobster traps many years ago, the idea has been catching on along the coast. From Maine to Cape Cod towns have claimed they have the biggest,oldest and the prettiest. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess but one thing separates Gloucester's from all the others.....It's got character! Made of over 400 used traps that have caught lobster and will catch'm again after the holidays. Also the buoys used to decorate the tree are hand painted by the children of Gloucester!

Leave it to Gloucester to use lobster traps for a tree. That's awesome!

I love seeing this go up every year! When relatives come visiting they are so excited to see it. I also think it brings our community together when we have something like this going on, Town Pride

"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"!
