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 Gloucester Fall Sunday!

While Sunday is the domain of the NFL the Gloucester Fishermen Youth Football teams also play on Sunday. It all starts in the morning and runs through early evening with a slate of games of many age groups. This Sunday Danvers was the visitor and though working as the weekend stadium supervisor, I couldn't resist taking out the camera as the sun set. On my way home I stopped at the Fish Pier for a few shots.

On The Beach!

Cold and windy, a great day to be on the beach! I got the proof right here, all you have to do is imagine the fresh salt air and see the solitude. 
Good Harbor Beach then over to Pavilion Beach to see the progress of the Beauport Hotel.

No crowds!
 At first I thought this man was waving at me.
 Then I thought his surf board was buried in the sand!
 Then I thought he told some to stop!
 He must have been kung fu fighting!
 Karate chop!
 Like a movie scene!
 Getting closer.
 and closer
 Off to walk the beach.
 Conversations and Thacher Island as the backdrop.
 "The House"
 Big surf on Bass Rocks.
 The Beauport Hotel progressing.
 From Commercial Street.
 At the corner of Commercial St. and Fort Square.
 View in 3/10/12

 Lifts all lined up.
 Fishermen's Memorial, what's wrong with this picture? See below....
...Official name "Stacy Esplanade"!

"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"!
