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!

The Greasy Pole
“Created by Gloucester natives Tom Papows, Michael Pallazola, & Emile Doucette in just 5 days, “The Greasy Pole” is a 7-minute short film about Gloucester’s unique sporting event. The film was made as part of the International Documentary Challenge ( and has been selected as a finalist in this year’s competition.”

“The International Documentary Challenge is a timed filmmaking competition where filmmakers have 5 days to make a 7 minute non-fiction film. The filmmakers are assigned a genre (in this case SPORTS documentary) and a theme (HOPE and/or FEAR). Created by three Gloucester natives, Tom Papows, Michael Pallazola, & Emile Doucette, “The Greasy Pole” has been selected as one of the 13 finalists in the competition and will be screened at the
Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto this year.”

Robert Newton-

Robert Newton runs the Cape Ann Community Cinema, and is a full-time writer and editor. He recorded the award-winning novelty CD “Monkey Bismuth,” and is the keeper of his late grandfather’s collection of antique Gloucester post cards, some of which are part of this show.

Mike Lindberg-

Mike Lindberg, GMG contributor and mastermind of many mind blowing photographing and editing posts created the video to Accompany Earl & Arch’s “Gloucester Til The End” and will be putting together something amazing of which I know nothing about yet.

So Plan on getting there a little early and hanging out to meet the folks that have put these presentations together and also speak with other Gloucester lover and creative types!

Remember- This Sunday at 1:00PM it starts but doors will open early for the meet and greets.

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"!
