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!

Ive always liked the East Gloucester fire barn .I would love to go in and look around. I guess I have a thing for fire houses. I'm not sure what it is but I love old fire houses

When we were kids the firemen sold candy and was a great place to hang out. Now it's packed with antique cars.

that's right Jay.. we could go into the fire barn and get our twin lights tonic, chips, candy...
and the firemen let us wait in the station on those cold winter days until the school bus came. I particularly enjoyed that photo. Thank you.

Antique cars at an old fire house! Sounds like heaven to me. Now I have to get in there some how.Do you know if anybody lives There.(I'm NOT thinking of breaking in) I was just wondering.

There was a benifit open house last year in the Fire Barn. When the weather is nice the owner has the doors open. Maybe if you go by and it's open you could stop by and say hi.

I may just do that.Thanks

"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"!
