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!

Inspiration !

Ever since I can remember I was always interested in boats and ships of all types. Through the years I've collected books covering from the early days of sail to the navies of the world past and present. It didn't matter if it was a tramp steamer from the early 20th century or a modern luxury yacht. Growing up in Gloucester seeing the frieghters arriving in port brought an air of excitment to know here is something that travels the world's oceans coming to my home.The fishing vessels of all types and their different riggings made Gloucester harbor a symphony of it's workings. The wonder of a vessel when it's "high and dry" on the railways never ceased to amaze. Seeing a Fitz Henry Lane painting for the first time took my breath away. I could see from the light the angles and detail here is someone who shared many of my visions. I would wonder if Lane was alive today if he would he use a camera? Perhaps not,his talent was on canvas,but I bet he wouldn't hesitate to use one now and then. I guess that's what I see before I snap a picture....a Lane painting....sort of!

I like the new format.

Very easy to follow.

That pic of the swan going for the carrot is one of my favorites that you've taken.

Keep up the great work!

"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"!
