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!

Rainbow & Lightning and then some!

Hot and humid means t-storms rainbows and fog. I took many photos and the problem here was which ones to post.

Crazy Skies, Gulls and Girls!

Lots of weather going on, T-storms and downpours but not all the time. And Commercial fishing has made a comeback in Gloucester Harbor, literally. Last week fishermen were catching pogies in the harbor! I haven't seen that in over 15 years.

Confused storm cloud!
 Wading in the rain.
On the life guard chair.
 Microwave surfing!
 In black and white.
 Pogie fishing in the harbor!
 A closer look.
 Singing gull!
 Proud gull.
 Public service announcement....Gulls can and do fly away with wallets!
 Patriotic gull!

New Wicked Tuna Boat and Mother Nature!

This post has a bit of everything Summer around here. From daybreak to dusk to a lucky lightning shot.

Dawn breaking over Harbor Cove.
 Storm passes by.
 One last bolt!
 The sun breaks behind me.
 Creek jumping!
 "The House" under billowing clouds.
 Sunset from Plum Cove Beach.
 Skipping rocks at the sunset!
 Up up and away!
 A sunset gathering.
 Fiery sunset!
 Panned back.
 The glory of Gloucester!
 Venus and the moon at dusk.
 Gloucester at dusk.
 Atop a lobster buoy.
 Wicked Tuna's Newest boat, Capt. Dave Marciano's F/V Falcon.
 It even has trim tabs!

"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"!
