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!

Explosive Mother Nature!

 Strong winds this past week churned up the ocean. The seas battered the coast so much I could hear and feel the ground rumble in my yard about a mile from the Back Shore!

Stacy Boulevard is all spruced up with flowers again. I was waiting all week for a good day to capture them and went early afternoon when we had breaks in the clouds. When I got home to down load the pictures only one was on the memory card! Turns out the card somehow popped out of its slot. I headed back there in the late afternoon which by that time clouds obscured the lowering sun.

The End of April!

 This week a new cruise ship visited Gloucester. The 341' expedition cruise ship Ocean Explorer.

Ocean Explorer enters the outer harbor.

"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"!
