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!

Summer Sights!

Summer is now fully established with hot and humid days with the occasional thunder storm. Working at the Beauport Hotel, a new view on the city is hard to ignore. At night when I close up the roof top pool & bar the landscape is breath taking and peaceful. In the morning the sun starts it's rise as gulls stir and fishermen head out for the days catch.

Moon glow.

What A View!

After 35 years in Quality Control in the Aerospace/High Tech industries it was time to shift gears. After Q/C it was two years with the Fishing Industry as a Dock Monitor and three years working security at an out of town high rise, it's now back home and working at the Beauport Hotel. The new hotel affords new views of Gloucester and working the midnight shift the morning sunrise can take your breath away!

From the Boulevard and banners of fishing boats I took!
 Gull checks out the view!

Fog and Fireworks Leftovers!

 We had a few days of fog so I waited until just before sunset to see if I could find that right light combination. Also I added some leftover July 3rd fireworks and the great sky of that day.

The sun tries to break through!

Gentile Bandstand at Stage Fort Park.
 Foggy Niles Beach.
Good Harbor Beach
 Foggy volleyball game!
 Two games!
 I found a beached toy boat!
 I re-launched it!

"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"!
