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!

Crash !

Due to my computer crashing....IDE Hard Drive not present" the screen says, I'll be away from adding new material. I don't know where the IDE drive went, but for some reason I can't boot the computer! In the meantime it's in the shop and I'm crossing my fingers all my files and programs will be saved. I don't know the timetable to get back up and running, but hopefully it's not long. I know I should have had an external hard drive, but not being schooled in those things I dragged my feet a little too long. Now I'm using those feet to kick myself! My niece was kind enough to allow me to borrow her lap top computer so at least I can handle the basics like this post. I'm dying to get it back so I can download images I've taken the last few days..... so please check back!

I found this on her of my early "point & shoot" images!

The tech is in the process of downloading the last of my files & programs and will begin loading them back on a new hard drive. I may be back soon.

I came across your site while looking for New England ocean images for computer wallpaper. I visited Gloucester some years back on the way to vacationing in Rockport.

Sorry to hear about your computer crash. Glad to hear you were able to save what was on your drive. If you don't mind a suggestion from one that has had it happen to her (with me it was over 1,000 music files) Two things, get an external plug and play hard drive to store your pictures. Second, to back that up if you have dvd writing capability on your computer, burn all of your pictures to rewritable dvd's, that way if you have problems again you always have a copy. Take care and looking forward to new pictures

Thanks Sandy!
I've already started,I discovered an auto feature on my photo download program that allows me to copy by the day,week and month the latest entries. Next pay-day I plan on an external hard drive.

"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"!
