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!

Plum Cove & Lanes Cove !

The sun finally busted through so I headed to the north corner of Gloucester. The tide was rising and the light was refreshing.

Fog & Rain Continue !

More of a steady rain today and the pot holes filled with water make traveling hazardous. Too bad land vehicles don't have depth sounders onboard,they would come in handy on days like this!

Soggy Day !

Rain off and on through out the day and that's what I had to the rain drops. I would get to one location and the skies would open up. Get back on the road and find another spot as the rain let up and shoot. Then it was back on the road and so on. Today I focused on the Rocky Neck Marine Railways and the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center.

Waterfront Fog !

Fog along the coast,that's what the weathermen said and that's what we got! One of those weather happenings that paint a different picture on the waterfront. To photograph days like this presents challenges. Over exposure is easy to do in these conditions and additional "tweaking" of brightness and contrast is a must.

"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"!
