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!

Hurcules vs Gloucester!

Over a two day period winter storm "Hurcules" battered our coast. Heading home from work on route 128 was a white knuckle affair with numerous spin outs, mostly SUV's who's drivers think 4WD means "drive as fast as you want"! 

Heading home.
 The Greasy Pole and frozen rails.
 Empty benches on the Boulevard.
 The texture of a snow drift.
 Good Harbor Beach
 The repaired footbridge weathered the storm!
 A frozen sign!
 Salt Island
 A gull and Thacher Island.
 Two gulls fly over the beach.
 Wind whipped breakers.
 More move in.
Bass Rocks under attack!
 A powerful wave.
 Offshore breaker
 Approaching breaker.
Taking pictures.
 Brace Rock
 Brace Cove
 Smith Cove
 "Fog Off"
Drifting up!
 Jewelry shop on Rocky Neck.
 Beacon Marine
 East Main Street
 East Gloucester Square

"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"!
