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!

Funnel Cloud Over Gloucester!

About 6 pm I heard the distant rumble of thunder then checked the weather radar. Figuring I had maybe 20-30 minutes before the storm hit, I headed up the hill behind my house to hopefully capture lightning. Well my attempt proved a nano second off on some impressive bolts. But as I scanned the sky I saw a distant rotation of clouds forming a funnel. Soon after I took my last shot the winds picked up and quarter size raindrops fell from the sky. I scrambled to put my camera back in the bag as I ran through the woods down the hill. Small tree branches were breaking off and falling around me! I made it home just in time to close the windows.

Storm builds at 6:07 pm

At 6:18 the funnel takes shape

At 6:19 the funnel begins to drop.

About 30 or so seconds later it's really taking shape. That's when the rain started and the winds picked up sending me home in a hurry!

Where were you when these photos were taken ? I ask because I am from there and am wondering if these were taken from green street or maybe east Gloucester ( bright side ave area ?)

From Pilot's Hill in East Gloucester off E. Main St. behind Espresso.

"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"!
