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!

School Bus Washes Up In Gloucester!

The heavy wet snow that fell Sunday night coated everything it stuck to. With that in mind I headed to Eastern Point to get some shots. To my horror while walking the rock strewn path to the Breakwater I noticed a school bus washed up! Luckily no one was inside, the only contents was seaweed and some salt grass. After notifying the authorities I learned the bus had been stolen! The bus belonged to the North Shore School of Herring and was stolen during the February vacation. A Hermit Crab(His name withheld due to his age)was taken into custody and Judge Gray T. Flounda handed down a 30 day sentence to be served in a clear plastic bottle at the Folly Cove House of Correction! The Hermit Crab was sent "up the river" after confessing he took the bus for a joy ride and lost control during Blizzard "Nemo"!

Damage was minimal.

Large swells hit the Breakwater.

My plan was to walk out there to shoot the lighthouse but with 15' swells coming in at high tide prevented that!

I would of got wet!

Probably swept overboard!

It was wise to take the high ground!

From Sun to Snow!

Third weekend in a row with snow! This time with out the wind and it was a heavy wet sticky snow. Earlier in the week we had sunshine that did a lot of meltage from the previous snow storms. I guess that's Mother Nature's way of making more room for the white stuff!

Cannon and wind turbines.

Snow and Wind At It Again!

Another weekend and another snow storm. This one was nameless unlike "Nemo" but it did pack a punch with about 8" of snow with wind gusts over 50 mph!

"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"!
