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!

Another Past and Present!

With a chance find in my computer files, I stumbled across the Gloucester Schooner Festival of 2007 among others. Also mixed in are a few recent shots.

"American Eagle"
"Spirit of Massachusetts" approaches Stacy Boulevard.
                                  Lot of lines!
   An Egret sees me and asks: "Are you looking at me"?
                              Fishing for lunch!
                                Dog Bar Breakwater
               Fishing boat swarmed by gulls in the distance.
                 Gulls huddle on the Breakwater!

Iced glazed Little River!
                              Frenchman's Pier.
                             Boston on the horizon.

Angry Side of Nature!

All these photos appear closer than they actually are. Using a zoom lens and editing allows me to stay at a safe distance yet capture the power of nature. When you think you are safe, nature can trick you!

Calm before the storm.
A bridge too short!
 Walking among the breakers.
 "The House" at Good Harbor Beach.
 A different view.
 Brace Cove
 Brace Rock
 Wave continues.
 Tons of water!
 A foolish approach!
 Tempting nature!
 Way too close!
 Double plume!
 The power of nature!

November Sights!

Football is in full swing and most of the tourists are gone which makes for a great month for me. Solitude takes over as the season shows many faces. Work in the boat yards brings interesting sights and that's where I headed, at least over to the Rocky Neck Marine Railways.

Gull looks out at an almost empty Good Harbor Beach. Duck in the creek!
                                Walking the Spit from Salt Island.
 Thacher Island
The 50' "Joseph S. Kennedy" an ex motor launch of the aircraft carrier "USS Theodore Roosevelt".
 F/V "Captain Dominic"
 Bow on!
 Two Bows
 Phyllis A. in the cradle.
 Extensive work being done, pilot house removed.
 Port side work.
 Rowing by.
 A cat!
 Under the hull.
 "Fame" bow.
 "Fame" having work done to the starboard side.
 Dusk over Gloucester.
 Pastel sky!
 Fire in the sky!

"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"!
