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!

Cruise Ship & Young Sailors!

A small coastal cruise ship "American Glory" entered Gloucester harbor this morning and is tied up at the Cruiseport. Young sailors enjoyed the breeze and young Greasy Pole walkers practiced for the future. And at 5:30pm Good Harbor Beach is packed!

I just couldn't imagine the summer anywhere else but on the beach. Great photo's. I love the beach one. So much fun.

Steve.... that "cruise ship" reminded my of the casino boat that was here several years ago..

hip chick....I hate the beach! Actually it's the crowds I don't like. Screaming kids,20 different radio stations blasting away. What I like is a nice secluded beach where all you hear is the surf and the yacking of gulls!

I love the beach you describe !!!

I recently sent away for a brochure for that cruise line I thought they were a little steep in price !!

I was just reading about the American Glory in Yankee Magazine! What a coincidence. It holds 49 passengers and starts at $3,300 per person for a I think a 7 day cruise along the coast. It sounds nice but 7 days would be too long for me.

I'm not big on beach crowds either Jay. We usually try to find a place that is a bit quieter, even if it means a bit of a jaunt. I'm loving these summer days we're having!

I've seen kids in the auto parts store buying tubes of grease for the pole!

"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"!
