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!

First Home Game in 2 years !

Manchester /Essex High School Hornets haven't played a "home" game since the old field was ripped up to build a new school. Nomads sharing Endicott College and Gloucester High School it was time to come home! With the help of the Manchester/Essex Gridiron Club,the athletic department and the town's DPW a "Turkey Day" home was created. Brook Street playground which is the practice field has a new surface and with the old scoreboard propped up on a flatbed trailer and Essex Radio's speaker truck, it was ready to play.The field was re-dedicated to honor long time football coach and mentor Ed Field. His wife was on hand to do the coin toss. And the outcome would put a big smile on Coach Field's face. Georgetown coming in with a 8-1 record and Manchester/Essex with a 10-0 record. Manchester/Essex won going away 40-21! A triumphant day on Coach Ed Field Field!

"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"!
