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!

The Wonder of Nature!

While in my yard I noticed one of two resident Red Tailed Hawks sitting in a tree across the way. I had to get my camera and that guy sat there a good 20 minutes. I was hoping to get a shot of his majestic takeoff but I had to wait and wait. When I zoomed in on him I noticed he was sleeping! So I started yelling and he soon woke up. Shortly he began to flutter about as I steadied the camera and began clicking away. With one last defiant look he raised his tail and instead of a majestic takeoff he he proceeded to take a majestic poop!
Lesson learned.....Never wake up a sleeping Red Tailed Hawk!

 He wakes up.
 Looks defiant!
 He lets loose!
 And finally takes off!

A Little Bit of This and That!

No real theme in this post. I caught the sunrise from my office window and took a few cloudy day shots around the Boulevard and shots around Newell Stadium. The last two from last year just for the heck of it.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Traveling Wall Comes To Gloucester!

This past week the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Traveling Wall came to Gloucester's Fuller School. Thousands came to pay respect to the 58,300 who were lost during the conflict.

I also included images from the New Balance Track and Field at Newell Stadium.

Those from Cape Ann lost in the war.
 Display trailer.
 Large US flag flies over The Wall.

 My shadow selfie!

"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"!
