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!

St. Peter's Fiesta Part 2 !

With the Sunday events rained out it was championship Monday for an extended St. Peter's Fiesta. A large crowd showed up on Pavilion Beach to watch a great seine boat race with "Lock and Load" hitting the beach just before defending champ "Wharf Rats".
Here I included Saturday's Greasy Pole but a low flying drone cut into my field of view locking out my focus just as Joe DeSilva grabbed the flag!

2015 St Peter's Fiesta Part #1 !

This years St. Peter';s Fiesta started out with great weather but the first time in my memory all Sunday activities were washed out due to the weather. The Sunday Seine boat races and Greasy Pole will now be on Monday at 6:00 pm.
Here I have the Friday Greasy Pole, some of the seine boat races and a collection of night shots from Saturday night. My next post will include the Saturday Greasy Pole and the Sunday on Monday Greasy Pole and Seine boat races.

"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"!
