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!

Trim Color of Newell Stadium, Red or Crimson?

As Newell Stadium renewal continues I couldn't help but notice the bright red aluminum panels that trim the bleachers. Red was the school's colors in the 50's and 60's and in the early 1970's football coach Bob Yates was hired. Yates a one time Boston Patriot had been an assistant coach at Harvard and brought the crimson color with him. As I took some shots with the sun high above the red shows very bright, late afternoon shots it darkens almost to crimson. But I'm pretty sure the red will pop under the lights of a night game. Whatever the color this new athletic field is going to be something, gone are the warped stands, gone are the pot holes in the undersized track and gone is the field of salty mud!

the official school colors of GHS are crimson and cream, though variations of those two have been used throughout the generations.
