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!

Rising From The Ashes !

December 14 2007 an eight alarm fire hit the center of Gloucester. The fire started in the 28 unit Lorraine apartment building and then consumed the Temple Ahavat Achim next door.
One resident of the apartment building, Robert Taylor died in the fire. The aftermath of the fire created an outpouring of help from the community for the displaced residents in the form of clothing,furnature and a place to stay. As for the temple's congregation, local churches opened their hearts and buildings and money raised help them rebuild. Now the rebuilding effort is in full swing. Side by side they rise from the ashes created on that cold December night.

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!
