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!

Santa Claus over Cape Ann !

I did it! With the help of a good friend in Scotland I managed to not only capture Santa flying in his sleigh over Gloucester but over Rockport too! You see Scotland is 6 hours ahead of us and my friend left a note for Santa to ask him to slow down enough to do a fly-by photo shoot over Cape Ann and he did! First I set up my camera at the Rocky Neck Marine Railways and just before total darkness saw him whizzing by.
Santa was looking for homes where the children were fast asleep before he lands and brings them their presents. So I figured since it was still early maybe I could capture him over Rockport too. From T Wharf I got a good view and clicked just when Rudolph's head turned towards me, boy that red nose of his is really bright!

"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"!
