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!

Jimmy "T" Goes Hollywood and Late Night On The Docks !

Back in March I did a promotional photo shoot for CBS in Jimmy Tarantino's efforts to be a cast member on their hit show "Survivor". Well Jimmy made it and he's a proud representitive of Gloucester and Cape Ann. Yesterday mid afternoon I got a call of a boat landing at Boston Seafood Display Auction down on "The Fort". As it turns out the boat "Princess Elena" was not on my list due to a last minute change so I was asked to cover her unloading. The boat was late to arrive but that gave me the chance to catch the waterfront happenings from one of the prettiest spots in the harbor. And what did I see? Jimmy "T" out rowing a dory, early evening wearing sun glasses! He has gone Hollywood!

I have enjoyed looking at your blog. We lived in Gloucester for about 5 years when I was a kid. We left there and moved to Missouri. I have great memories of Gloucester. One day I would love to bring my family. I am excited to see a Gloucester guy on Survior and a Kansas City contestant also! I can hardly wait for it to air. Keep up the great work! Thank you!

Boy....from Gloucester to Missouri. That's a long walk to the beach! I'd bet your family would love some fried clams and a whale watch cruise and just hanging out at the creek at Good Harbor Beach. I think Jimmy will do us proud and thanks for the nice comments!

Wow, this is exciting stuff! I hope Jimmy knows what he got himself into. Survivor is absolutely brutal! My husband watches ever single season so we'll both be watching it this year. When does he leave?

Sharon....the show is taped. It will air Wednesday September 15.

"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"!
