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!

Sun & Fog & Demolished McDonald's!

It took a long time for Gloucester to get into the modern world by having our very own McDonald's. For teens growing up in my era, a trip "ova the bridge" had McDonald's on the itinerary. In the mid 80's Gloucester finally had their Big Mac, shake and fries fix. This McDonald's was built on a swamp, settling occurred over the years and now it's in a swamp! Any heavy rain produces flooding. It didn't surprise me when I drove by the other day to see it being demolished. For what I understand the property will be raised and a new McDonald's will rise ABOVE the swamp!
Flooded and demolished!

They had to tear down and rebuild a McDonalds up here too because it was sinking!

I'd hoped we would get down to Rockport/Gloucester this week but it didn't happen. No time and the weather wasn't really the best. Maybe next month!

"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"!
