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!

From a Nor'easter to Nice Weather!

Now that we are in the middle of the winter, overall I'd say it's been mild. Only one big snowstorm which melted away in the mild temps. But we were hit with a rain soaked nor'easter in the beginning of the week followed by some great sunrises.

Please note: At no time was I near natures fury thanks to a zoom lens and post editing. The breaking seas must be respected and you never know when its reach may put you in danger from either the force of the water or flying debris.

Fire and Ice!

It was two years ago last week when we had the biggest seasonal snow fall on record! Gloucester was hit with a total of 128" of snow and on this post images from when it all started.
I also added a few recent sunrise and sunset shots.

With Cape Ann surrounded by water there's plenty of opportunities to watch and record the natural show of sunrise and sunset.

"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"!
