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!

Block Party July "09"!

After the June Block party was rained out a little luck helped bring good weather to July's Gloucester Downtown Block Party. Organizer Joe Ciaramitaro was attacked by a seagull which made a direct hit on Joey's shirt! As it turned out it was a perfect night,the crowds came and all had a good time!

Yup...he got me right there!

Painting on the street!

The crowds are building!

A birdseye view!

Enjoying the scenery!

It's getting crowded!

Lisa O'Maley and her husband Ed Reither from San Francisco...Lisa is Gloucester born and bred while Ed tries to learn Gloucester lingo!

Rob Newton of the Cape Ann Community Cinema showing his grandfather's vintage Gloucester post cards. This one of Gloucester harbor hand painted colorized from 1890!

Joe is interviewed by the Beacon!

No he's not sipping beer,his drink is behind the beer bottle!

Patroling the street!

Scooting along!

Dining in the street!

Love your photos and blog.Love the pink building.....amazing for New England.

Jay Albert said...

Thanks! That's nice of you to say. I'm not a big fan of the color pink but...I think it's becoming a trend in building color. Gloucester's Senior Center is a Pepto Bismol shade of pink! For a senior center I guess it fits!

Look at that Segway! What a hoot! Can't say I've seen any that looked quite like it.

Good luck to Ed! Unless you are born and raised in New England it's nearly impossible to pick it up. What gets me is that there are so many different dialects!

Post cards from 1890?? That's amazing history! It must have been so great to see them!

Looks like a great time and great weather : )

Ed's got a great teacher in his wife Lisa. Her dad was my dad's buisness partner for 35 years! They were also class mates and team mates growing up.Not once in their buisness together did they have an argument!

"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"!
