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!

Birth and Death of a Funnel Cloud!

Monday morning an F-2 tornado struck Revere about 25 miles south from here. Many homes and businesses were damaged but luckily only few minor injuries. Here we had a brief downpour and rumble of thunder. Just about 6:45 pm I was working in the yard when I noticed clouds building. I grabbed my camera and headed up the hill behind my house where we have sweeping views looking west from south to north. After a few shots of impressive cloud formations I began to notice rotation at the base of the clouds. Micro funnels appeared and disappeared then a larger more defined funnel took shape. From beginning to end I guess it didn't last for more than a minute but was amazing to see. This is a rare event for here, tornado's are something we only hear about from the midwest but over the past few years conditions for tornado's have increased. June of 2013 I captured one from the same spot and luckily the same outcome. Lets hope our luck holds for the future!

 The heart of a thunderhead!
 A gull flies through it.
 Shaft of light over the city.
 The light creates a wedge.
 Rotation begins
 Micro funnels sprout then disappear!
 Funnel cloud over Gloucester!
 Starting to break up.

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"!
