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!

Preventing An Explosion & Too Much Rain !

Today the ground is saturated,basement pumps are working overtime as we are again pelted with heavy rains. On Monday an oxygen tank and acetylene tank caught fire inside the Carter's Yacht Yard building at the Rose's Marine property. Another "good stop" by the Gloucester Fire Department prevented a major explosion and fire.

It's so nice to see these photos of "back home." Even though we moved to Michigan from the White Mountains in New Hampshire, Gloucester is my favorite place on earth! Your blog helps me deal with my homesickness a wee bit better. Thanks so much.
We haven't had any rain here least a month and a half, if you can manager it, please send some of that our way.
Stay dry and I'm just really loving your blog!

Thank you Beth!
You can have all the rain you want and I'll work on it.

"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"!
