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!

Paint Factory in the Waning Light !

Standing watch over the entrance of Gloucester's inner harbor the Tarr and Wonson Paint Factory awaits her new life. The birth place of marine anti fouling paint is slowly in the process of becoming a marine research center. Ocean Alliance continues to raise funds to make the old Paint Factory their world headquarters. The other day as I sized up the approaching sunset, it became apparent it was going to be a ho-hum affair. The sunset needed something and by the time I settled on the Paint Factory the sun had set. But with the red brick and the pastel sky I thought it still would be interesting.

From this file photo you can see the building on the left that was recently demolished.

North end exposed.

South brick building.

I'm standing out on the rocks to capture this shot.

Notice the brick work.

The sun is long gone!

How is construction progressing? They do plan on adding the old section back, right? Wonderful sunset in that last shot.

Slow....Fund raising has slowed down and the economy hasn't helped. Ocean Alliance's Iain Kerr pointed out to me the south building has a new slate roof made of recycled materials and new windows will soon be installed.

"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"!
