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!

Here Comes Santa Claus! Merry Christmas!

I was lucky again and caught Santa in his sleigh zipping back and forth in the sky. He's so fast I have to set my camera on the highest setting to "capture" him! He streaks in the sky waiting for kids to fall asleep before he lands and places presents under the tree.

There he is.....Santa flying over Gloucester, taken from the roof of the Beauport Hotel.
 In a blink of an eye he crosses the city!
 A few moments later he zooms by again!
 Passing City Hall.
 Crossing over the harbor.
 Santa over the Chamber of Commerce.
 Over the Kent Circle Christmas tree.
 Over the Lobster Trap Christmas Tree!

Sunrise Sea Smoke and Snow!

With Christmas fast approaching the weather is getting into the act. Heading home at sunrise offers a unique time of day to capture those fleeting moments in weather.

Lights turned down in the Beauport Hotel Christmas decorated lobby.
 Snow starts to fall on the Beauport Hotel deck.

I also included some sunrises and sunsets from this past week along with a shot of Kent Circle.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

A look at the lobby of the Beauport Hotel and a look back on Gloucester's world famous Lobster Trap Christmas Tree through the years.

"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"!
