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!

Lobster Trap Tree & Rough Seas !

After working several boats in the morning the weather quickly turned south as rain and heavy winds battered the coast. Around 5:30 pm I was online checking local weather stations and observed a gust of 57 mph....a minute later the lights went out!
Power was finally restored around 8:00 pm. Just before dark I headed over to the Breakwater to check out the surf. It was so windy it knocked me around like a pinball! The light was so low at that point I wasn't sure how the photos would come out. Ideally I should shoot using a tripod in that low light but with the wind so strong it would have been useless. The Breakwater images aren't the best quality but they give you a sense how bad the weather was getting.

A quick drive through town and a shot of the Lobster Trap Christmas Tree!

Cruiseport Gloucester the night before.

Cripple Cove.

Eastern Point Lighthouse

Dog Bar Breakwater. The 2,250-foot breakwater stretching out from Eastern Point Light was built by the Army Corps of Engineers between 1894 and 1905.
The substructure of the breakwater is a rubble mound covered with 231,756 tons of Cape Ann granite blocks, each one weighing 12-13 tons. The breakwater was constructed for $300,000 and is 7½ feet above mean high water and ten feet wide.

This gentleman who walks the Breakwater everyday wanted to show me a loose granite block!

And it's right there!

Rough Breakwater!

Breaker hits Breakwater!

"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"!
