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!

MS Eurodam From All Over !

The day was overcast as the 935' 2104 passenger cruise ship "MS Eurodam" made a stop in Gloucester. With the inner harbor channel depth at low tide around 20'-22' the ship usually anchors about a 1/2 mile inside the Breakwater in the outer harbor. This time she came very close to the inner harbor just off Ten Pound Island but she didn't anchor! She stayed stationary using her thrusters and azipod units. An azipod is an external drive motor with propellers attached and they can turn 360 degrees, no rudder needed! Similar to the lower unit of an outboard. Imagine, with a push of a button this massive ship can stay stationary using GPS coordinates. In technical terms it's called "dynamic positioning" a way a virtual anchor! I circled the harbor to catch the sight of this behemouth from almost every angle.

From Rocky Neck visitors from Toronto and Germany check out the ship.

"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"!
