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!

You Just Never Know......

From fog to sunshine, you never know what the weather will bring this time of year. Last week we had 50 degree temps and this week into the 60's. And you never know what you'll see around the area too!

A touching moment on the docks! What else did you expect me to write?

Gull overlooks the harbor.

Lobster boat "Black Pearl" passes Beacon Marine.

"Foxy Lady" and "Teresa Marie"

"Ramblin Rose"

Shooting hoops on the waterfront.

Swan family....The kids are almost grown!

Three Eiders.

Thatcher road and a bunch of birds.

People and dogs.

Surfer looking for waves.

Thacher Island surrounded by fog.

In the last shot, that's a whole hell of a lotta birds!

Looks like the foliage is coming on strong in Gloucester. Only one swan parent? They certainly are growing up, aren't they!

You always seem to capture the spirit of Gloucester in your photos.

I'll take some of that weather please.:)
We have been having hurricane-like winds coming off Lake Michigan since yesterday ( waves up to 17 feet high ) and our leaves have blown off to rural Ohio somehwere I think....;)

Thanks once again for bringing the essence of Home here to Michigan!

Sharon, it seems to me this time of year more than other times huge flocks of birds are more noticable.

And thanks Beth.....It's funny what looking through a lens does to the appreciation of what's around you! Before I picked up a camera I took everything around here for granted!

"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"!
