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!

A Preview of What's to Come!

They say a monster is coming! Predictions of as much as three feet of snow, blizzard conditions with winds approaching hurricane force! Don't forget to get your bread and milk!

On my home from work Saturday morning I took the following:

Western Avenue
Buswell's Pond
Hough Avenue
Tablet Rock
 Stacy Boulevard
                                                                    Rose's Marine
                                                               "Beauport Princess"
                                                                     "Midnight Sun"
                                                                 Fishermen's Memorial
                                                                           Up close
                                                                      Void of color!

A Winter Sunset!

I love winter sunsets, the snow cover adds to the pink, orange and blue.

"The House" at Good Harbor Beach.
 Thacher and Salt Islands.

 The sun sinks behind the Breakwater.
 Boston from Gloucester.

Sea Smoke On the Water!

It was -2 degrees F when I left work Thursday morning so I headed down to the Boulevard on my way home. When the air temp is that cold you are sure to find sea smoke rising from the warmer water.

Schooner "Adventure"
Inner harbor
 Looking out towards the Breakwater.
 Ten Pound Island
 Pavilion Beach
 Like an over sized hot tub!
 The Greasy Pole.
 Fishermen's Memorial

"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"!
