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!

City Hall...More Views!

The other day when I ventured to the tower heights my mind was so into the climb and the views outside I neglected the rest of this historic structure. The auditorium is where the city council holds their public meetings.It once held high School basketball games when the Central Grammer Apartments across the street was a high school! I also included a few more shots from the top of the tower. The quality of these is limited due to the condition of the windows.

City Hall!

Oh, I love the ones of the WPA murals! Those are real Gloucester treasures.

Did you take any of the names walls in the stairwell?

The light in the stairwell is bad during the day. Actually too much foreground light coming through the windows. I'm going to try at night one of these days.

More great shots Jay! What a great old building. They just don't build them with such character and dignity anymore.

The views are amazing, though rather dizzying I imagine.

Wonderful header shot on your blog. I would imagine there will be a large turnout for the memorial service.

"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"!
