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!

A Senseless Act of Vandalism !

I'm breaking away from what I normally post to a senseless act of vandalism I stumbled upon while walking my dog. Destroying a public bench is bad enough but destroying one dedicated to our fallen heroes of the Iraq War just tugs at your heart. Gloucester has always supported our troops above and beyond many cities and towns. And many Gloucester citizens have taken up the call to duty. This act is a slap in the face to all those who have fallen and to those who serve today as well as all veterans. I would like to think our youth is a cut above the rest, many are but for that small minority who think vandalism is a fun thing to do. It is unfortunate that when who ever did this matures,they will have to live with what they did, and that it goes well beyond a few broken boards..... to broken hearts!

Unfortunately there will always be those few that have no respect. It's a shame.

I was just reading about a cemetery up in Maine that had about 200 grave stones toppled. Most were historic, causing $30-40,000 in damage. You wonder what goes through these kids heads?

What a shame Jay, there's no excuse for that, I don't care if it was kids, we all were young once and we all know right from wrong !!!

There will always be THAT kind that live amongst us.

So sad.

I think if you go by there you'll see it was fixed by a concerned citizen.

and all because he saw it right here on CAI

"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"!
