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!

Political And Military Competition !

Some things go un-planned and today was no different. Today I had no clue on what content I was going to add to my blog. One thing I vowed I would never include is politics. But today I couldn't help myself. I think of all the ex-Gloucesterites living elsewhere that like a dose of what's happening now at home and that makes for a good reason to change my mind. With the vacant US senate seat of the late Teddy Kennedy up for grabs Martha Coakley and Scott Brown are battling it out. While I was driving through town I spot someone holding a flag on Commercial Street. "What....a parade this time of year?" I thought. So I headed over there to see what's going on. It turns out Martha Coakley was in the Chamber of Commerce and word got out to Scott Brown supporters who camped out front with their signs.
Later at the high school there was an ROTC drill competition going on with schools from all across the region. Friend Ed Collard told me about it earlier in the week and I almost forgot! I'm glad I made least for part of it. It was a pleasure to see the precision and discipline shown by these fine young men and women.

"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"!
