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!

Foggy Fiesta !

Fog..... and so was the event! The most un-organized Fiesta that I can remember! It's time to re-think the starting times for these events.With fog slowly enveloping the harbor, the Greasy Pole was interupted to run a seine boat race.Then the announcer had trouble keeping track of the grease walking contestants! I felt bad for those on the was cold! And being wet didn't help them.Perhaps someone on the platform with a walkie-takie would help! So as the time closed in on 8:00 pm I hauled anchor,before the winning walk! Even my nephew and his friend couldn't wait to get home!

Fiesta "08" Tornado ?

It didn't look good on the radar screen but I saw a possible window to head out and document the Fiesta. The plan was to check out the USS Whidbey Island, the 609' LPD-41 and then anchor near the greasy pole. After about 20 minutes it was clear that the sky's could cause havoc.And with high tide the "pole" was obscured by lobster boats anchored too close to the platform to get any decent shots. Lightning all around and what looked like funnel clouds made my mind up to haul anchor and head back to the dock.

The Glory of Gloucester !

In this blog I talk about light,Cape Ann light to be specific. The ever changing light that draws artist of canvas and camera. But recent events has the world's media portraying Gloucester in a different light. A recent thread on Cape Ann Online's forum titled "What's so good about Gloucester"? Has inspired me to create this post. Rainbow over the fleet, Kids fishing,Fall colors,Niles Pond in the winter and sunsets that can make one pause and reflect about our world are only a few reasons "What's so good about Gloucester"!

"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"!
